incorporated in regular meals and snacks. Check out 8 different ideas to
enjoy your hummus. You’ll surely be eating more hummus!

ice-cream is a real thing! A delicacy in Israel, this one is sure to get your

pizza with spicy hummus, vegetables and cheese: Sounds unusual doesn’t it? Trust us, this a must try
for all pizza lovers! Trade in the tomato sauce for some hummus, and

fresh-grated parmesan/goat cheese. Or add your favorite pizza
veggies-the only limit is your imagination.

potatoes? Instead of adding in loads of sour cream, why not throw some
flavorsome hummus into it? Stir in a little butter, salt, and a big batch of
your favourite hummus. And believe it or not, it works! Hummus mashed
potatoes are easy and oh-so delicious! They are healthier than regular mashed
potatoes. Hummus flavored mashed potatoes pair nicely with kebabs, lamb stew,

vegetables and you have a comfort food for yourself. Shake things up with your
favourite roasted red pepper hummus or garlic hummus and pair with whole wheat
pita to go the healthy route.
