Hummus Remix: Perfect Party Hummus… in a Hurry!

Sometimes I start playing around with the text function on Photoshop and I get a little carried away. Forgive me.
Perfect Party Hummus... in a Hurry!

Putting my mortifying level of cheesiness aside, I had to go there! This has been my hands-down favorite snack/appetizer/snacketizer/whatevertizer to whip up when I have last minute company. Though lezzbehonest, most of the time I have enough notice but wind up reading blogs, snuggling chickpeas, washing sippy cups, attempting to tame my frizz-bomb of a mane, finding yogurt or avocado or some unacceptable substance in the aforementioned mane and playing the do I really have to wash my hair? game while attempting to clothe myself and OMG-WHAT-AM-I-GOING-TO-FEED-THESE-PEOPLE!?

Of course it doesn’t always go down quite like that. Sometimes I make this with nothing more than the intent to shovel it into my face. There may only be 2.5 of us living in this house, but a tub of hummus is a one day affair over here. The second it’s opened, it’s a mere hour or so from utter annihilation. Fancifying it simply slows us down a little.Why yes, I do use toppings as obstacles to slow me down. Why no, it doesn’t work one bit. I still eat faster than the Cookie Monster.mmm… cookies. I should make us some… Until then, we hummus!

Serves: 4-6 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 tub of your favorite hummus
  • 2-3 TBSP diced cucumber
  • 2-3 TBSP diced tomato
  • 2-3 TBSP crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 TBSP minced red onion
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped parsley
  • a hearty drizzle of balsamic reduction or glaze
  • sliced cucumber, carrots, bell pepper slices, + pita chips for dipping

  • Of course if you're chilling at home with some chickpeas [yours, not mine] then feel free to whip up a bowl of yummy homemade hummus! Same goes for the glaze, you can purchase a bottle at your favorite grocery store or simply reduce your favorite balsamic vinegar over medium heat in a saucepan , stirring occasionally, until it thickens into a yummy reduction.
Instructions
  1. Get ready to tackle that party prep to-do list because your easy appetizer pretty much just walked into the kitchen and made itself!
  2. Chop the veggies and herbs and pile onto hummus.
  3. Crumble your feta on top and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
  4. Surround with an array of crunchy pita chips and veggies. Because, duh.

    Great idea! I love doing things like this….thats what i did with sweet potatoes last week, made it into a giant superfood by stuffing it with all the goodness I could find! I do not like that you put a picture of a cookie afterwards though….as now THAT is all I am thinking about rather than the hummus….you woke my sweet tooth up!

    I love the remix. But as a side note, I have to say…Harris Teeter hummus is AWE. SOME. As a store brand fresh made food, I find it to be superior to all of the big brands. I usually go with their standard traditional, but I’ve had the roasted red pepper too. And it’s the jam.

    I love dressing up hummus. There’s a dip I make all summer long and the concept is similar to this one. Start with a bed of hummus and load it up with yummy and flavorful veggies. The version I make came from Farm Fresh Feasts and includes artichokes, olives and banana peppers. It’s fabulous, although I may have to give yours a whirl on my next go around. Give this balsamic reduction drizzle action a try.

  2. […] Leftovers will keep tightly-wrapped in the fridge for 2-3 days and taste amazing as a sandwich spread, base for pizzas, or with an array or crudites. It’s hummus, put it on everything! You can even jazz it up with your favorite toppings: […]
