Hummus Basil Feta Corn

A twist on street corn that uses hummus instead of mayo as the glue to keep all that delicious feta and basil on top.

Chicken Hummus “Satay” Skewers

Chicken Hummus “Satay” Skewers

These chicken skewers are far from authentic but they are delicious and unbelievably easy to make. I like to think of it as a satay “hack” honestly. Toss a handful of ingredients together that you probably already have laying around, and you get an app that most party guests would be beyond impressed by!  The key to the recipe is the tasty Sabra hummus that is nice and nutty, salty and garlicky and adds so much dimension to the satay dip.

Flank Steak Hummus Roll Ups

Flank Steak Hummus Roll Ups

Hummus and beef may sound like a weird combination to us westerners who mainly use hummus as a dip for pita, but it’s actually a fairly common combination in middle eastern food. In this flank steak recipe, the hummus is used not only as a seasoning for the meat but also as a glue to help bind the steak together. It’s national hummus day on the 15th, and Sabra is really going all out for the day, I will give you some of the details on their fun giveaways at the end of the post.

Hummus Quinoa Cakes

Hummus Quinoa Cakes

I wanted to use hummus to make something that was falafel-like and very easy to make. I knew I would have trouble achieving that toothsome crunchiness of a true falafel, so I thought of using cooked quinoa as the main ingredient to get that desired texture. It actually worked even better than I thought! The quinoa on the edges that got browned up were perfectly crunchy, and the insides of these patties were creamy and juicy with just enough bite. I served these falafel style in a fresh pita with cucumber salsa, lettuce, and tzatziki.

Savory Carrot Hummus Cake with Hummus Icing

Savory Carrot Hummus Cake with Hummus Icing

What the what??? This came about because Mandi noticed the texture of sabra reminded her of cake frosting. She asked me to make her a carrot cake that we could frost with the hummus. It obviously had to be a savory cake to work with the super savory hummus. It actually came out pretty tasty! The cake was really flavorful and was almost the texture of a dense pancake. The carrot and curry really came through, and melded well with the hummus. I initially imagined this as a brunch dish, but it’s more of a cool and unique app for hummus lovers.

Hummus Pizza

Hummus Pizza

Did you guys know that hummus makes an awesome alternative to pizza sauce? I used it on pizza at a recent pizza party, and a few people even called it the best pizza there! I decided not to get weird with the flavors like I did yesterday, instead I just topped the pizza with some of hummus’s best friends. Friends like feta, olives, kofta, and tzatziki.
