10 Things to Do with Hummus, from Deviled Eggs to Hamburgers

Hummus is the perfect way to add some creamy, tangy richness to whatever you're making.

Hummus-Beef Burgers

Cook 1/2 finely chopped red onion in olive oil until softened. Mix with 1 lb. ground beef, 1/2 cup hummus, and about 2 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley. Shape into burger patties, then cook as desired; squirt with lemon wedges. Serve on a toasted brioche bun with lettuce, tomatoes, and more hummus.

Hummus-Sesame Noodles

Thin 1/4 cup hummus into a sauce using 1/4 cup chicken broth, 2 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar, and 2 Tbsp. soy sauce. Toss with 6 cups cooked spaghetti (8 oz. dry) and 1 Tbsp. sesame oil. Top with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds.

Mediterranean Chicken Salad Cups

Mix hummus with Greek yogurt and season with lemon juice to taste. Toss with minced shallot, shredded rotisserie chicken, crumbled feta, chopped tomato, and sliced olives. Spoon into lettuce cups. Sprinkle with chopped fresh dill and parsley.

Hot and Buttery Chickpea Dip

Spoon 1 1/2 cups hummus into a small ovenproof baking dish then and drizzle 2 Tbsp. melted butter on top along with 2 Tbsp. toasted pine nuts and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes or sumac. Bake in a 400-degree oven until most of the butter has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Squeeze half a lemon over and serve with crusty bread.

Chicken and Hummus Brown Rice Casserole

Spoon cooked brown rice into a baking dish. Top with a mixture of chopped cooked chicken thighs, diced cucumbers and tomatoes, and sauteed diced onions. Top with a layer of hummus, then drizzle with olive oil and soy sauce. Broil until browned in spots. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Hummus Flatbread Pizza with Greek Salad

Brush 4 pitas with olive oil and bake in a 400-degree oven until crisp, about 5 minutes. Spread each pita with 2 Tbsp. hummus. In a medium bowl, toss 1/2 chopped cucumber, 1/2 chopped tomato, 1/4 cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives, 1/4 diced red onion, and 1 cup baby arugula, 2 Tbsp. lemon juice, 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Divide the mixture among the 4 pitas, and top each with crumbled feta.

Chickpea Croquettes

Combine one 15.5-oz. can of chickpeas with 2 Tbsp. hummus, 1 Tbsp. chopped parsley, and 2 tsp. lemon zest in a food processor; process until mixture is thick enough to hold the shape of a ball. Season with salt and pepper and shape into 1 1/2-inch balls, then lightly roll each ball in flour. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the croquettes, pressing to flatten slightly, until browned on both sides, about 6 to 8 minutes. Serve with sour cream or Greek yogurt mixed with lemon zest, chopped dill, salt, and pepper.

Romaine Salad with Orange-Hummus Dressing

Whisk together 1/3 cup orange juice, 2 Tbsp. hummus, and 2 Tbsp. olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss 1/2 of dressing with 3 torn romaine hearts (about 1 lb.), 1/2 sliced red onion, and 1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes. Drizzle remaining dressing over.

Deviled Eggs with Hummus

Halve 8 hard-boiled eggs lengthwise, then scoop the yolks into a mixing bowl. Mash the yolks with 1/4 cup hummus and 1/4 cup olive oil and pipe back into the eggs. Sprinkle with sumac or paprika.

Hummus Rotini Pasta Salad

Thin hummus with olive oil and rice wine vinegar, then toss with cooked rotini pasta, chopped parsley, toasted almond slices, and plenty of coarsely ground fresh pepper.

Hummus with pita (or whatever crackers you've got lying around) has become a part of the standard American snack pantheon. It might not be quite up there with chips and guac, but it's definitely earned a demigod slot. But the garlicky, rich chickpea puree is a lot more than just a dip. You can use it like miso to mix into salad dressings, as a crispable crust for casseroles, and even as a substitute for pizza sauce! It's the perfect way to add some creamy, tangy richness to whatever you're making, so check out these 10 new recipes to get your summer hummus on.
