We love hummus, and this version is really amazing. If you have a pressure cooker, this is an easy, tasty reason to pull it out! We pair hummus with fresh veggies for a meal or snack. —Monica and David Eichler, Lawrence, Kansas
Not your ordinary hummus, this dip is a combination of two things I love—chick peas and Southwestern flavors. You can substitute 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed, for the grilled corn. —Cheray Buckalew, Cumberland, Maryland
Hummus is an easy, tasty and nutritious snack or appetizer. Friends are often surprised at the uncommonly good taste and the jalapeno gives it a little kick. Serve with crackers, raw vegetables, or tortilla chips.—Lisa Armstrong, Murray, Kentucky
Whenever I go to a party, the hostess always asks me to bring my hummus. I like to serve it with vegetable crudettes to make it even healthier, but you can also serve it with toasted pita bread or your favorite crackers. Tahini, ground sesame butter, used to be hard to find, but now it's getting more and more common at quality grocery stores.
Drizzle hummus with good quality olive oil and garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs. A light sprinkle of feta cheese is delicious, too.
“My son taught me how to make hummus, which is a great alternative to calorie-filled dips," says Nancy Watson-Pistole of Shawnee, Kansas. "This recipe is simply delicious. Fresh roasted red bell peppers make it really special.”
My children love this easy hummus and even like to help me make it! Hummus is a great way to sneak in some beans and important soluble fiber into their diets. I use this hummus in a bread bowl as the "body" of a turkey for my vegetable platter at Thanksgiving. —Kelly Andreas, Eau Claire, Wisconsin
