Heavy on the Hummus

All I want to eat lately is hummus.

Garlicky, oily hummus.

What else should I have done yesterday except make my own while home on my lunch break?

Pardon the bad office lighting.

Today, I made a huge veggie + hummus wrap with my homemade hummus, some cilantro pesto, cucumber (what?), carrot (who am I?), tomato, and romaine.

I could barely get this thing rolled up – and yes, that’s about 1/2 cup of hummus on there  :)

I actually feel like hummus is the perfect vehicle for eating things you don’t normally like, too. I do not like raw carrots, and I have NEVER liked cucumbers unless they were in that greek yogurt sauce. BUT – put them with some hummus and I’m all in. Strange, huh?

Between the hummus + pesto, I feel like a garlic-breathing dragon today.

I also had a few random olives from the fridge and some of these awesome black grapes.

I’m hoping the sweet grapes will take a bit of that garlic away!

 

Do you like hummus? What’s your favorite way to use it?

  1. I absolutely love hummus. My fav way to use it is in a wrap! :)

  2. i loooove looove loooveee hummus. my favorite way to use it is to put about 1-2Tbs in a bowl with some greens (spinach, mixed greens, chard, kale, etc.), toss it with my bare hands and then top it off with the salad toppings of the day. it makes for a great salad dressing replacement and a creamy, tasty, filling salad!

  3. I do luuuuurve the hummus! Your carrot eating reminds me of YET ANOTHER staple I forgot at the the grocery.
