From black bean to red pepper to layered Mediterranean, hummus adds depth to dips. Additional dip flavors that can be enhanced with hummus include avocado, pesto, jalapeño or chipotle spices.
Hummus, a creamy blend of chickpeas, tahini, olive oil and garlic, can serve as a blank canvas to layer flavors into when planning appetizers and dips. Add hummus to cream-based dips such as cucumber-dill or into a fresh salsa for a more al fresco feel. Layering the hummus with fresh vegetables and herbs in the Mediterranean style offers up a healthy option when serving dips to your family and guests.
