Good things to do with hommus

I love hommus & often have some in my fridge but get bored of just eating it as a dip or on sandwiches.  So, here are 2 other super tasty ways to eat hommus.

Hommus stuffed mushrooms.
Greg was looking through a recipe book in a book shop & saw a recipe for this, I was skeptical that it would work - I think my reaction was "cooked hommus??  Yuck!!"  But he was very keen so I gave it a go & it is really delicious as well as being dead easy.
  • Bake a portabello mushroom for 10 minutes on about 180
  • Chop up some semi dried tomatoes & mix into some hommus
  • Remove from oven & spread the hommus mix thickly over the inside of the mushroom
  • Top with some pine nuts
  • Return to the oven for another 10 minutes

Creamy Lemon Pasta
I used this recipe, but didn't measure anything - gotta love a recipe where you can just throw it all together & it works!  I had never thought about putting hommus on pasta before but this was really good & also dead easy.


  1. Love the idea of pasta plus hummus and am so giving that recipe a try, thanks for sharing!

    I used to go to a baked potato place that served baked potato with hummus plus tomato based pasta sauce it was ace.

  2. I like the look of both uses for hummus! And I'm like you, I often have it in the fridge but I forget to eat it because I get over eating it as a dip for 5 days in a row!

  3. Oooh, I love the mushroom idea! I always forget how much I like mushrooms until I see something like this and it reminds me :D

  4. Love the pasta idea! Thanks :)
