What can you eat with hummus that’s healthy?
Healthy options also mean tasty options when it comes to hummus, a Middle Eastern dip and spread made from chickpeas and tahini. Whether you’re looking for the perfect potluck side dish, or a tasty snack or lunch idea, hummus can be a great go-to for a nutritious and delicious meal.
Hummus is a great source of vegetarian (or vegan, depending on the recipe you choose) protein, fiber, and vitamins. And it’s incredibly versatile — it can be enjoyed with a variety of different dippers and healthy accompaniments. Here are some tasty and nutritious ideas for what you can eat with hummus for a healthy meal or snack.
- Pita bread
Pita bread is a classic accompaniment to hummus and offers some whole-grain goodness to your meal. Toast up some pita bread and cut it into wedges for a delicious and healthy dip into a bowl of hummus. Not a fan of pita bread? Try topping your hummus with whole-grain crackers for an added crunch.
- Whole wheat wraps
For a more substantial snack or light lunch, spread some hummus over a whole wheat wrap and load it up with your favorite veggies. You can get creative and add some crunchy salad greens, feta cheese, olives, onions, or cucumber for some extra flavor and nutrition.
Beans are a great protein-packed accompaniment to hummus. Try adding some garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas) to a bowl of hummus for an extra hit of protein. Or spread your favorite bean dip over your hummus for a flavorful and four-layer dip.
For a heartier meal, pair your hummus with a salad. Start with a simple green salad and top it with a generous spoonful of hummus for a nutritious and delicious meal. Or create a vegan “tuna” salad by combining hummus and mashed chickpeas for a protein-packed lunch.
