Hummus lasagna sounds pretty random to me, but you never know. It's good in sandwiches and wraps, with pita chips, on crispbread/crackers, and with raw veggies. I love hummus. And it's so easy to make.

I had some really crappy hummus today at my college. But hey, it was free... kind of.



I've heard people on here say they mix it with tomato sauce. You could try that in lasagna. It's good in tortillas with vegetables too. I usually eat it like that. or with some raw veggies, pita, or falafel (but I've never made my own)

I use it as a dip for veggies or crackers, make sandwiches, I guess you could make a kind of tostada with it.

I like it...



-Mixed with tomato sauce on pasta.

-Used as a dip for tortilla chips. YUM. Especially sesame-blue corn tortilla chips, e.g., Garden of Eatin' Sesame Blues.

-In a sandwich with veggies (my fav. way to do this is on a roll with cucumber, onion, lettuce, tomato, and hot peppers.)

*Points to user title*

Yes, hummus and pasta sauce is quite good. I put it on virtually everything (I go though like 5 tubs a week =P). It goes well on veggie burgers, pita bread (or any bread for that matter), falafel, etc. I've even been known to eat it right off the spoon, but don't tell anyone that. =P

Now YOU should totally make your own, that would get insanely expensive VERY quickly!!



Chi-Tea: Hummus is good in lasagna!!! Ignore the naysayers and random skeptics, just spread it over the cooked noodles like you would a ricotta cheese or whatever. And then add your other ingredients, it's especially good in vegetable lasagna...



And while we're on the subject, Hummus! is one of my all-time favorite VBers!!!

I eat hummus sandwiches for lunch every day at school! Usually I putslices of tomato and a little pepper if I want it fancy.



I like the super garlicky kind! Never tried making my own, though. Maybe I should try!

I love love love hummus on any kind of veggie, but my favorite has to be pita chips with hummus. I love making my own, and I like a couple of store bought brands too.



Mmmmm, hummus.

Hummus is awesome. I use it in sandwiches, especially sauteed onions and pepper in a pita. It's a great dip for tortilla chips, crackers, veggies. Sometimes, I'll just eat a spoonful or two with nothing else. I also toss it with a pasta and a little bit of olive oil and then throw sauteed veggies such as broccoli or green beans over the pasta. Delicious.

Roast a load of vegetables: Courgette, Aubergine, Red Onion, Tomatoes, Peppers and a few cloves of Garlic. Get yourself some warm pita bread.

Fill the Pittas with veg & hummus. Or just dip and dive individually.

= Awesome meal.



I've tried making my own several times, but alas it isn't actually ever as good as restaurant or even store bought. Still OK though. Can't decide which i prefer between tomato and olive hummus, roasted red pepper hummus, or just plain ol' hummus.

You guys aren't using enough garlic, olive oil and salt when making your own. Plus fresh-cooked chick peas make a world of difference. You can NOT be skimpy with the ingredients.



That said, store-bought and commercially prepared hummus has just a butt-ton of salt and fat added. Making your own, even if you add a LOT more than the recipe calls for, will still be a healthier option. And cheaper by about 235543234%. I honestly cannot imagine how people afford store-bought on a regular basis.



If you're not impressed with a recipe, try another one or play with it 'till it's better suited to your tastes.

Hummus in lasagna?? me thinks I must try this. yum!!



TNS--how much is hummus where you are? I pay 85p just for a tin of organic chickpeas (I know you said use fresh, but I am just giving you a price comparison) and I can get a pot of really good hummus for 99p. So there is savings, but not as much as you probably have. My main concern is the plastic throw away.



I still never have gotten my homemade hummus to come out right--always like paste. But every other dip I make--perfect (but they use softer beans like cannelini or great northern) go figure.

****I have a blog--check me out!

For those of you who are making their own, a couple of other spices that I've found to taste great are:

cumin

garlic (of course)

cayenne pepper



Then of course you can make your own "flavors":

roasted red pepper

olive

garlic, etc.



But I agree with TNS, it's just a trial & error thing.

But don't give up on learning how to make your own, it can really save you money.

I've never tried making my own, but maybe I'll give it a shot. It would be a lot cheaper. I go through a pound container a week, and that's with rationing it out. Otherwise, it probably would be twice that .

I use chickpeas I've cooked from dry, so it may not be an accurate comparison.

They cook up velvety and make a great hummus that is not pasty or dry. 1 cup dry, maybe 25 cents worth at most? makes 4 CUPS of hummus (of course with garlic and olive oil and other things)...



(Sorry Spidergrrl, I don't know UK measurement equivilents...)



I could buy a can (about 1 1/2 half cups) of chickpeas, for about 75 cents and make about 2 cups of hummus, still less than store bought...



On the other hand? A 6-ounce tub pre-made - less than a cup - costs $3.49!



I don't have Whole Foods or Trader Joes and hummus may be cheaper there, but still not cheap enough to justify (on my budget) buying it.

yea. my mom made my veggie lasgana last night so i didn't get to put the hummus in but i will next time. I've notice that store bought hummus is more limey flavor or salty if that makes sense but its good .

I think I paid $2.19 for a 16-ounce tub at Trader Joe's today. Not too bad. At Giant it was nearly $6 for the same size tub.
