Hummus Stuffed Mushrooms
When my daughter was around 5 years old she tasted hummus for the first time. She was with two other children who were older and one of them said, “This is peanut butter” truly believing it was peanut butter. I walked in just in time to see her stick a finger in the hummus, scoop out a large bit and put it in her mouth. She kept digging in.
As we know hummus tastes nothing like peanut butter but apparently she really liked it because she wasn’t shy about eating it with her finger!
Since I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sabra this year, my family and I have been eating different flavors of hummus and trying a variety of toppings.
Tay still asks if she can dig into the hummus “or are you saving this one for a recipe?” and my other half sneaks a container to work at least twice a week. They’re still lovin’ it, especially the tzatziki inspired hummus topping we put together.
To celebrate National Hummus Day I’ve made hummus stuffed mushrooms and topped them with a few of our favorite things to put on hummus! You’re gonna love this.
It doesn’t take more than a few minutes each side to cook the mushrooms, after that the hardest part is done. Perfect for casual get togethers, your own Unofficial Meal time or celebrating National Hummus Day.
I used to spread hummus on sandwiches or wraps but lately I’ve enjoyed the tzatziki inspired version and just chopped olives on top for dipping chips. We’ve added some to our green salads instead of dressing and Tay, the one who doesn’t really care for salads, doesn’t seem to mind. She prefers it to the same ‘ole dressing we used to make (balsamic vinegar and olive oil). There’s a good chance hummus will be a sandwich spread once again but it’s a nice change to use it as a dip or mushroom stuffer!
