Hummus sandwich

I took a slice of plain wheat (not white) bread and put hummus on it. Fold it over and enjoy! I loved it!

Hummus Hand Roll

I make my own marinated artichoke and roasted tomato hummus and spread it on the center of sushi paper, top with quinoa seasoned with Tamari or liquid aminos and any roasted or baked vegetable such as beets, or roasted red bell pepper and summer squash - roll into a sushi-style hand roll. It's awesome!

Way I use hummus

I use hummus instead of butter on toast. It tastes so much better than butter (although both of them are completely different) YUM!

In stuffed grape leaves?

I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds like a great idea (depending on which hummus recipe is used). Has anybody out there done this?

Favorite way to use hummus

I open a whole wheat pita pocket, spread a good layer of hummus inside, then put sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, very thin sliced onion, a few spicy peppers and bean or alfalfa sprouts. It makes the best vegetarian sandwich.

I use it on sandwhichws in place of butter or margarine. Tastier and healthier. Not so good on toast though :-)

What is Your Favorite Way to use Hummus?

I use it as part of my Bruschette recipe. Toasted bread, garlic rub, spread hummus, seasoned diced tomatoes , topped with shredded parmesan cheese and in the broiler until cheese becomes a golden brown. Yummy !!
