5 Unique Hummus Recipes that You Won’t Believe Exist

We are finally going to eat the rainbow with these hummus recipes! We managed to hit another nutritionists’ sacred advice already. These recipes belong to an Andy Warhol pop art collection (Yes, they are that colorful!). They are also just as revolutionary as Andy’s art! Now without further ado, let’s get artistically healthy with these recipes! 

Beetroot Hummus

This one is not the weirdest of them all, that’s for sure. As a matter of fact, this recipe is the most liked by the vegan community! In addition to being tasty, it is packed with antioxidants and plant-based protein. With such vibrant color, you’d think beetroot would be a prominent flavor. But, with tahini, olive oil, garlic, and lemon, you’ll end up with perfectly balanced flavors. Now, let’s get healthy and try out this recipe for our afternoon snack!

If you want a creamier texture, then a secret ingredient is needed (no, it’s not mayonnaise). Yogurt (we are on a heath craze here) is a game changer in this recipe. You’ll love beets even more after trying this one!

Carrot Hummus

On days when we are really hungry, we dip carrots in hummus and hope dinner makes itself. Whoever decided to mix carrot with the actual dip must have hit an extraordinary level of lazy. For that, we are forever in his/her debt. This orange dip will be your best companion during chilly autumn days. And to all the food bloggers out there, this will go well with your autumn pumpkin and everything orange theme. Also, you’ll be addicted to the Moroccan flavors in this bright orange dip, especially when the roasted carrots absorb the spices! Enough with the talking, and let’s throw everything in a blender and dig in with this simple recipe!

BBQ Hummus

 

This is by far one of the best hummus recipes for your BBQ weekends. If the name doesn’t say it all, then the flavors will, especially when paired with a juicy piece of meat (or tofu for our veggie friends). BBQ hummus is as simple as it sounds! All you need to do is grab your favorite BBQ sauce and you are good to go. Just prepare regular hummus and add BBQ sauce to it.

For this recipe you’ll need 2 cans of chickpeas, washed and drained. Then, assemble the ingredients for any basic hummus recipe. Start by crushing three cloves of garlic, then measure a quarter cup of tahini and lemon juice. Moving on to the ingredients that make or break this recipe, you’ll need a teaspoon of paprika and four tablespoons of your choice of BBQ sauce. For some extra flavor, use one teaspoon of salt and one tablespoon of white wine vinegar.

After that, the “hardest” part of this recipe is next. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until you get the smoothest hummus you’ll ever taste!

Avocado Hummus

We are literally going green with this one. Adding avocados to your humus will not only make the texture ten times creamier, but it will add tons of nutrients to the dip. Food for thought, avocados have more potassium than bananas! In addition to having a great variety of vitamins, avocados are rich in healthy fats and fiber. What we are trying to say here is that Avocado Hummus will be great for your health and your soul! 

This recipe is coupled with a one-of-a-kind topping that’s nothing like your regular drizzle of olive oil. This special Tomatillo Salsa Verde, which mind you is great on its own, will be the perfect combination with the avocado base. And don’t worry, you will only need your food processor to make this recipe

If you are worrying about having too much fat (it’s hummus, you simply shouldn’t), then this tahini free avocado hummus recipe will surely cut down the calories but not the taste. 

Nutella Hummus

Leaving the weirdest for last, this combination will surprise your taste-buds…in a good way! After having all these savory hummus recipes, you will definitely be in the mood for something sweet. And what better way to satisfy your sweet tooth than adding Nutella to anything really?! Hummus and Nutella, two of your favorite dips combined in one. Trust us, it tastes GOOD! You might be worried about the sugar and fat content of this one specifically (really, hummus calories don’t count…), but we got you covered with two recipes. 

The first recipe focuses more on the chocolate-y flavor, and omits the tahini for cacao butter. More chocolate is always a good choice! The second recipe is a healthier version with agave, cacao powder, and tahini.  Both will be your guests’ favorite at your weekend party, especially when paired with fruits to dip!

Our 5 Unique Hummus Recipes are surely weird, but they will amaze your taste-buds nonetheless! 

So…What are you waiting for?! Grab you favorite crackers, and make some hummus! And by all means, lets skip the store bought hummus before our middle eastern ancestors start a riot!
