One of the things people may not realize about hummus is that it makes a great ingredient for making other foods. Hummus is WAY more than a dip. It can be used as a vegetable spread, deviled egg filler, and even in salad dressing! Here are three of my favorite recipes to make with hummus, all courtesy of Tribe Hummus. I wonder, now that you know hummus can be used for so many different things what will you try first?
Hummus Deviled Eggs
1/3 cup Tribe All Natural Horseradish hummus or Tribe Original Flavor
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more for garnish
1/4 teaspoon salt
- Put eggs in a medium pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, remove pot from heat, and let sit 14 minutes. Fill a large bowl with ice water. With a slotted spoon, transfer eggs to ice water bath (reserve hot water in pot).
- Cool eggs at least 10 minutes, then use a slotted spoon to transfer eggs back to hot water (to loosen shells) for 10 to 20 seconds. Pat dry and peel.
- Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out egg yolks and put them in a medium bowl. Add hummus, olive oil, pepper, salt, and horseradish. Mash mixture together with a fork. Spoon filling into egg white halves, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with black pepper.
