Big on flavor, low on effort. Just the way we like it.
Hummus is a workhorse when it comes to feeding your family. It pairs great with flatbreads, vegetables, and even adds depth and heft to sandwiches if you use it as a spread. Full of protein and fiber, it fills you up without weighing you down and can be a lasting source of energy for young, growing bodies.
Best of all, hummus can be a blank canvas for other flavor profiles. If it’s something your kids already enjoy eating, mixing new tastes and textures into a classic hummus is a great way to expose tiny palates to new, big flavors. Our friends over at VegKitchen share their favorite Five Flavored Hummus Recipes.
They take flavors of fall to a new level with their Pumpkin-Rosemary Hummus variation– a powerhouse blend of superfoods in one dish. We also love the last lingering flavors of summer you can find in the fresh, herby taste of the Basil Pesto Hummus. And if you want to change things up even further, swap out the chickpeas for white beans or cauliflower (which is totally having a moment and we are here for it).
Are you one of the converts who’s now obsessed with the InstantPot? So are we. And let us tell you, it has changed the way we whip up hummus from scratch. When you simply don’t have time to plan ahead (soaking chickpeas overnight is for people who are organized), your InstantPot will swoop in and save you. And if you’re looking for a hummus recipe so smooth and creamy your dinner party guests will swear it’s heaven-sent, try this technique. Trust us. It takes the texture of your dish to a whole new level.
