Hummus was on sale at the store today-buy one get, get one free, so I got 2 containers of hummus. I have plain and hot red chili pepper. The only thing I've ever used hummus for is a veggie dip. Any other ideas on what to use it for, particularly the spicy one (it sounded good at the time, but now I'm not sure what to do with it. lol).

Oh man, what NOT to do w/hummus!

1. Add to falafel-in-pita, or use as seasoning for other "themed" wrap...roasted red pepper, olive and greens, baby spinach...

2. Spread on grilled tofu sandwich.

3. I was eating it out of the container with rice crackers last night.

4. On multigrain bagel w/avocado, frisee and cucumber slices.

The hot red in particular will be a great boost to any sandwiches or bagelwiches you have in mind. Let us know what you come up with...

I second the sandwich idea. Hummus and avocado sandwiches rock! I add some sprouts and some green onions to mine.

You can also make a hummus salad dressing by thining it out a bit with oil or water.

* Use it as a sandwich/wrap spread

* use it as a potato topper

* thin it down and use it as salad dressing

* thin it down and toss it in your rice and veggie stirfry (think: satay sauce)

* as a dip for pita or tortilla chips

* thin it down and use it as a sauce.

The possibilities are limitless.

Last night I opened a tub of it to eat with broccoli. When the broccoli ran out I absent mindedly ate it off my fingers until I realized I finished off most of the tub. LoL

Chips + salsa + hummus = Yuuuuuumm.

I LOVE the way Einsteins does it - hummus and feta on ciabatta! Includes hummus, feta pine nut spread, roasted red peppers, red onions, cucumbers and lettuce.

In my own version, I'd use a wheat bagel, add tomato slices, and also use fresh spinach instead of lettuce.

I have found that hummus mixed with creamy italian salad dressing to be the best dip for... just about anything. Veggies, bread, crackers, pita. Yummmm!!!
