Quick, easy, and totally tasty, these healthy hummus stuffed peppers are sure to be a hit at your next party!

The interwebs needs another hummus recipe like I need a need another pint of Ben and Jerry’s birthday cake ice cream [lies; I must have more!] so I got creative. After all, I think we all could use another healthy snack for our faces.

Ok, fine… a healthy snack AND a pint of birthday cake deliciousness. Balance: it’s delicious!

If you find that your good intentions to scoop your hummus with an array of healthy sliced veggies always seems to be led astray by crusty bread, this is for you.

If you can’t seem to wind up any which way other than staring down an empty container of hummus covered in crumbs at the bottom of a bag of pita chips, this is for you.

If you just really want some effing veggies, then this is clearly for you.

If you really just want to be left alone with a full bowl of hummus and your feelings a spoon… I’ll leave you to that. I’ve been there.

Quick, easy, and totally tasty, these healthy hummus stuffed peppers are sure to be a hit at your next party!

These are perfect for a small snack for friends and/or family and great when you need an impressive little app for a shower or potluck that will stand out amist the giant crock-pots and casserole dishes.

They’re cute, bite-sized, and easy peasy finger food!

Though if volume is what you need, make this:

Take store bought bean dip from hummus to YUMMUS with this deliciously speedy shortcut. Tasty hummus is piled high with a mountain of toppings including feta, cucumber, onion, parsley, and drizzled with a sweet and savory balsamic glaze.

Or you can make like my toddler and run circles around the dog with a spoonful of hummus.

It looks pretty fun; I’m gonna try it!

    what an easy swap to avoid carbs for me… the peppers were so crunchy, I think I like them better than my normal scoop… !! This really helps me with making better choices when I still get to snack!

  • 5 stars
    These are the absolute perfect healthy appetizer!

  • These look fabulous. Do you know if they would hold ok overnight in the fridge? I’d love to make them ahead of time.

    • Hey Kristine! YES! I did this last Summer and they were still crisp and delicious. As long as the hummus and toppings aren’t extra watery you’re good to go.

  • Amanda

    I can always count on you to come through with the perfect something extra. My Super Bowl friends are going to love you!

    • Jenn

      Aw you’re the sweetest! Hope they’re a hit! <3 Send photos!

  • I can identify!! I’m always the one with those good intentions of avoiding the pita chips / crackers and sticking to the veggies. But those salty crunchy things are my weakness! Love the idea of putting the hummus onto the veggies ahead of time. That’s show me!

    So clearly Florida suits you since you are a blogging machine lately, cranking out one fabulous recipe after the next. I love the idea of just stuffing the hummus inside the bell peppers. You are a veggie god, my friend.

    • Jenn

      bahaha I love you! I’m only a blogging machine because I cant exercise/lift and have to have help hauling the chickpea in and out of bed for naps and sleeps and such so… I have help for a change and it. is. glorious. I’m going to be sad when my lifting ban is er.. lifted. lol

  • Seeing as my stomach blows up when I eat chickpeas (unless it’s felafel which has been deep fried to a burnt crisp), I will follow as per human chickpea and chase a dog with it.

    But this looks pretty epic- something I could whip up for brunch…with gum for later.

    • Jenn

      That’s unfortunate; eat more tim tams

  • I have never thought to do stuffed peppers with hummus!!! This will be perfect for a little get together at the house! Love this one! 🙂

  • Oh! That looks delicious! I’m the only person in my family that likes hummus, so I’ve never really known what to do with it other than pile it in chips or celery. Thanks for the inspiration! 😀

    • Jenn

      That’s actually a pretty sweet deal! No one steals your hummus when you’re not looking! Color me jealous =) haha

  • How fun and easy!! By the way, your photos are gorgeous! 🙂

    • Jenn

      Thanks Emily!!!!

  • I honestly don’t know what you’re talking about… there could never be enough hummus!

  • These would be perfect for a party. They’re so cute!

  • Well you just combined two of my favorite things!

    • Jenn

      Clearly that means you have to make them! =)

  • I keep seeing the sweet mini peppers at the store. Now I know what to do with them. What a great easy recipe!

    • Jenn

      They’re SO GOOD right now too! Sweet and delicious! Get some before the temps drop!

  • jillian

    yummmm two of my favorites together!

  • Awww love this! I have been making hummus homemade for my fiancee (ooooh that still sounds weird saying it :P) to take to work for months now, he is getting a bit fed up with celery and carrots, so this would be a welcoming change. I love to make hummus as it is so cheap and easy to make, but is also packed with goodness to help my body recover from the rigorous training I put it through. I wish there were more hummus recipes out there!

    • Jenn

      Congrats!!!!!! <3

  • Love these! I just pinned it to try. They next party I do, it’s on!!

    • Jenn

      Thanks Laura!!
