Hummus is one of the most popular spreads in the world, and with good reason — it’s delicious! But if you’re looking to mix things up, what to eat with hummus is something that can come in handy. Here are 10 delicious ideas to try next time you want to eat hummus!


1) Pita bread

Hummus is delicious and healthy, but it can get boring eating it by itself. Fortunately, there are a lot of great options for enhancing your hummus experience. One option to eat with hummus is pita bread. It’s perfect for dipping into the sauce, scooping it up with some vegetables or crackers, and even making sandwiches out of it. 


2) Crackers

Crackers are a great option for dipping, since they’re small and easy to eat. They also pair nicely with hummus and can be served as an appetizer. Here are some of our favorite crackers that go well with hummus: 

– Whole grain crackers with seeds like pumpkin or sunflower seeds 

– Wheat crackers with sesame seeds 

– Oat crackers that don’t have too much sugar or salt added

3) Vegetables

Vegetables make a healthy and flavourful addition to any meal, so hummus is no exception! To prepare vegetables for dipping, lightly coat them in olive oil and roast them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until they’re slightly browned. Then serve them alongside your favourite hummus flavours.

4) Chicken

5) Beef

Beef with hummus is one of my favourite ways to eat it. It’s the perfect mix of salty and tangy that you can’t get enough of.  Plus, beef makes for a filling meal which means you will be less tempted to snack on something else later on in the day. 

 The great thing about beef is that there are so many ways you can cook it. Whether you prefer your beef rare or well-done, you can be sure that hummus won’t overpower its flavour.


6) Lamb

Lamb is the perfect choice for hummus lovers. Lamb has a rich, buttery flavour that pairs well with the tangy and creamy chickpeas. It’s also an excellent source of protein and iron, which can help you stay energized throughout the day. If you’re looking for something quick, try spiced lamb skewers on top of pita bread or tabbouleh salad.

7) Fish

One of the best ways to enjoy a hummus dish is with fish.  There are many types of fish that you can use, but we recommend tilapia because it has a light flavour and delicate texture that will not overpower your flavours.  A healthy option for this dish is grilled or baked trout which has a wonderful buttery taste. You can also use pan-fried catfish or shrimp, just make sure they are fully cooked before adding them to your plate.


8) Salad

There are many delicious options for eating hummus with salad, here are the most popular ones:

  1. Roasted vegetables and chickpeas 
  2. Grilled corn and avocado 
  3. Spinach, cucumber, and feta 
  4. Mediterranean salad with olives and tomatoes 
  5. Feta cheese with cucumbers, lemon juice, onions, mint leaves, and olive oil


9) Soup

If you’re looking for a way to spice up your hummus, try pairing it with a soup like chickpea stew, lentil soup, or butternut squash soup. All three are warm and hearty options that will provide the perfect contrast to the cool and creamy flavour of hummus.


10) Dessert

Hummus is a great dip for fruits, vegetables, crackers, or chips. But did you know that it also pairs well with desserts? 

Sorbet or gelato Hummus is a good replacement for frosting when it comes to cupcakes. Not only do they look beautiful, but they’re also delicious. Another surprising dessert combo is hummus and cake. You can use hummus as an icing on your next birthday cake or as filling in cupcakes that are topped with fruit compote. For the ultimate indulgence, why not try a slice of chocolate cake covered in hummus?
