How To: Personalize Your Hummus

Remember how I taught you how to make your own hummus, and therefore save lots of money by not buying the pre-made kind?

Well, now here are some of my favorite ways to add flavor to your hummus.  Not that there’s anything wrong with the classic version.  It’s just nice to switch things up now and again…

Pesto and Sundried Tomato Hummus:  To the original version, add 1 Tbsp. of store-bought pesto and 2 chopped sundried tomatoes to the blender, and mix to combine.

Lemon Pepper Hummus:  Add in 1 to 2 tsp. of lemon pepper seasoning, and an extra squirt of fresh lemon juice to brighten the flavors.

Chipotle Hummus:  Add 2 tsp. of chipotle powder and 1 tsp. of paprika.  If you like more spiciness add in ½ tsp. of cayenne red pepper. 

 

I have more combinations up my sleeve, but those are a few good ways to get you started.  Have a great Friday!
