A Twist on the Classic Dip- 5 Hummus Recipes

July 28, 2011

Hummus is an easy dip that can be made year round with the help of a food processor or blender (or you can go old school style with a mortar and pestle).  I like to serve my hummus with pita chips and carrot sticks but there are a plethora of delicious dippers out there.  These hummus recipes offer a twist on this classic dip.

Raw Zucchini Hummus
Zucchini is overflowing in markets right now.  This hummus recipe is a good way to use this seasonal veggie.

Crispy Rosemary Hummus
Rosemary is an intensely flavored herb that pairs well with the delicate flavor of chickpeas.

Lentil Hummus
Lentils substitute chickpeas as the base for this hummus recipe.  The spices add a nice kick.

Broad Bean Hummus
Beautiful summer broad beans create a bright green hummus that is appealing to the eye and to the palate.

Avocado Hummus
No need to choose between guacamole or hummus, this recipe has the best of both worlds.
