Do you eat Hummus?

I just found the joys of Hummus the other day when I had to bring in a cultural food item for work. Hummus is so good and its healthy. Hummus is made out of Chickpeas. I'm eating Roasted Pine nut Hummus right now (80 calories per serving). I'm using it as a dip (wheat thins). It can be used so many ways though. Have you ever ate Hummus? Do you like it? What ways do you incorporate Hummus in your diet?

  • Yep! My 5yr old son love it! We just use it as dip mostly, but sometimes I will spread it on a soft tortilla, instead of mayo, when making a wrap.

  • We love hummus! My now 10 & 12 yr olds "discovered" it when they were 2 &4. They will literally just eat spoonfuls of the stuff. It has to be store bought, though, and preferably Sabra brand. My son doesn't like it when we make it at home.

    They take it on sandwiches for lunch at school. Dip crackers and pita in it. Last night we had it with falafel.

  • I sub hummus for mayo in my tunafish. I just got done eating a can of white albacore mixed with hummus, frozen peas and chopped pickles. I love using it for tuna salad because you really don't have to season it if you get the different varieties. My middle child used to eat it it by the bowlful, too!

  • Not regularly but I do eat it. It's yummy! I like it with pitas or as a dip for veggies or crackers.

    And apparently I need a bit more coffee because when I first saw this question my brain read : Do you eat humans? LOL!!

  • I LOVE Hummus. I like the Tribe brand Forty Spice flavor hummus. I eat it with wheat thins flatbreads (less fat/sodium than regular wheat thins), or with garlic Naan bread! So yummy.
