The Guide to Eating Hummus With Every Meal

August 28, 2009


Happy Fresh Friday! This versatile and delicious spread can be eaten 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (which some of us at the Oldways office come close to doing!). Hummus is also a great source of protein and fiber, two essential nutrients for a successful school or work day.


  • Instead of peanut butter or cream cheese, spread plain hummus on whole wheat toast or a whole wheat bagel and top with tomato slices.


  • Try hummus rolled in a wrap with vegetables for a quick lunch.
  • Cut up vegetables or toast pita wedges and send them along to school with a small cup of hummus for dipping.
  • Substitute hummus for mayonnaise in tuna or egg salad sandwiches.


  • Add more flavor and a creamy texture to soups by adding a couple tablespoons to the pot.
  • Stuff Roma tomatoes with it and serve them over a big, green salad.
  • Mix 1/3-1/2 cup hummus with 10 ounces of lean ground meat – it keeps burgers and meatloaf juicy.
