Hummus Recipe Variation

This healthy hummus recipe is quite an easy mixture of homemade ingredients! It’s a plain, yet delicious recipe, but

want to make more variation, so blend with some of my favorite variations including:

Roasted Garlic Hummus: simply mix the fresh garlic in a favor of a few cloves of rich, sweet, roasted garlic.

Pesto Hummus: use store-bought or homemade, plus maybe an extra garnish of toasted pine nuts.

Green Goddess Hummus: mix and blend almost ¾ cup loosely packed fresh, leafy herbs.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus: blend ¾ cup roasted red pepper, almonds, and smoked paprika to get a romesco-style dip or simply drained and cut slices into strips.

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus: use sun-dried tomatoes, rinsed and drained.

Green Hummus: blend fresh parsley, cilantro/basil, or spinach to get greenly hummus.

Sweet & Smoky Hummus: Add ½ baked sweet potato, maple syrup, a big pinch of chili powder, or some water as required. Now blend all ingredients along with the other hummus ingredient.

Toasted Sesame Hummus: Add and blend ½ tsp sesame in hummus, plus 1 tsp sesame drizzled on top.
