I’m a dip girl. Like if there is a condiment or a dip that goes along with a meal, I will find it, and I will eat it. Seriously, foods just aren’t the same without a dipping sauce. Agreed?!

Hummus is one of my favorite dips. It makes a great snack or appetizer. It’s super versatile – eat it with veggies or pita, as it as a spread to your sandwich, eat it with a spoon (is that weird??) – it’s just the best!

Homemade Hummus

Today I’m teaching you how to make two versions of homemade hummus! The cool thing about these recipes is that you can adjust them to your taste. If you prefer a stronger taste of a certain flavor, add a bit more than the recipe calls for! Cooking is all about playing around and perfecting a recipe to your liking!

Sriracha & Roasted Garlic Hummus

The sriracha & roasted garlic hummus may surprise you a little. The heat isn’t too intense. You just get a little kick of heat right at the end of a bite. If you can handle your heat well, or even prefer spicy food, feel free to add more sriracha than the recipe calls for!

Sun Dried Tomato & Roasted Garlic Hummus

The sun dried tomato & roasted garlic hummus was the fan favorite with my family. I have to admit I’m biased to the sriracha one though. The sun dried tomato has a very rich flavor that almost masks the tahini. If you’re not into the taste of traditional, classic hummus, this could be a good alternative for you!

Greek Appetizer Platter

If you’re hosting a party or just need some snacks for a casual Friday happy hour, you can turn these hummus dishes into a whole Greek appetizer platter. I like to add some meat, marinated feta cheese, tzatziki, and extra condiments to bulk up the appetizer. If you want a recipe for this whole spread, it’s coming within the week (stay tuned)!

What I love about this appetizer platter is that it’s just so dang pretty. I mean can you even with that presentation?! You’re guests will be wowed and you don’t even have to tell them it wasn’t that hard!

Notes

For a smoother hummus, remove the skins from the garbanzo beans.
 
If you wish to roast your own garlic:
  • Preheat the oven to 400 °F.
  • Peel off the outer, loose paper of your garlic bulb. Once you have removed the paper, cut off the top (¼ inch) of the garlic bulb.
  • Place the cut bulb on a piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Wrap the aluminum foil around the garlic bulb, making sure the oil olive will not drip out. Cook for 40 minutes.
  • Once the garlic is done cooking, allow to cool for 15 minutes, or until garlic is cool enough for you to remove from the outer paper. Discard paper, and use garlic as needed.
