Creative Ways to Eat Hummus: Here Are 5 Fun Ideas for How to Style & Serve Hummus

Hummus is the queen of all spreads! If you're like me and enjoy eating beautiful foods, you'll love these five different ways to style and serve hummus:

1. Serve as a side dish. In Mediterranean homes, hummus is staple as an appetizer and side dish. Serve your meals with a creamy dollop of hummus topped with herbs and pomegranates. Trust me, the pom pop pairs deliciously with the creamy and savory bite.

2. Spread on toast. A classic combo of hummus and avocado is my go-to lunch. Filling, delicious and nutritious without the midday slump. I like mine with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and herb flower. How do you like yours?

3. Simply saucy. Whisk with a little evoo and thin out with water and you'll have a simple protein-based salad dressing. Give it a swirl on your plate, then top with a fresh green salad and sprinkle with Marrakech spice blend.

4. Serve as amuse bouche. The easiest way to elegantly entertain your guests. What wine would you pair this with?

5. Style with flowers. Traditionally, hummus is made without any oils. My passion to incorporate nature in my daily ritual includes adding flowers to my dishes. A simple drizzle of your fave oil, a sprinkle of black sesame seeds and a flower will transform from everyday to extraordinary.

I absolutely loves these ideas, Java Hemmat . Two of my kids are vegan, we I buy a lot of hummus when they come over. I especially love the idea of serving it as a side dish. I've never done that. We usually just snack on hummus. I have used it as a spread in roasted vegetable sandwiches, which is really good. Thanks for the great ideas and welcome to 30Seconds! Hope to see some recipes from you!

Oh, yum! Hummus is one of my go-to appetizers. I'm excited about trying it in different ways, as a side dish and on my avocado toast for sure. I love the flower idea, too! So pretty and extra yummy looking. Thanks for the great suggestions, Java Hemmat . Can't wait to see more inspiration from you!
