From a hummus soup with the texture of miso to hummus-stuffed falafel and a hummus potato salad, Brothers Green Eats offers up five different ways to incorporate hummus into amazing dishes you may never have thought of — assuming any hummus is left in your fridge after opening it. We already gave away three of these, but the bottom line was that Sabra — who obviously have a vested interest in making sure you buy hummus (even though it's super easy to make your own, and barring that, you can improve the store bought stuff) — invited the guys out to an event, and asked them to come up with some innovative ways to use hummus in recipes. Hit play on the video above and fast forward to about two minutes in to get right to the good stuff.
They start off with a flatbread topped with hummus as a base for a simple Greek-style salad on top, made from a little lettuce, some olives, feta and a little olive oil, which looks fantastic for an appetiser or any time of the day. Then they move on to the hummus potato salad, which is really just some seasoned and boiled potatoes, celery and golden raisins (totally optional, I think) tossed up with a little spiked hummus (hummus with some sour cream, a hit of parsely, some lemon and some curry powder) for an amazing side dish.
They move on to the hummus stuffed falafel, made from some soaked chickpeas and spices they put through the food processor and stuffed with hummus before cooking, and a hummus-based noodle soup that you'll have to watch to really understand. They close the whole affair with some barbecue hummus chicken kebabs, which look amazing, and are as simple as you might think: hummus and barbecue sauce in equal parts, and marinade some cubed chicken with it for a few hours or overnight — then toss it right on the grill (they use their broiler, and prop the skewers up on a baking dish).
All said, hit play on the video above for some pretty ingenious ways to use up the hummus in the back of your fridge — or for an excuse to go out and buy some hummus and make something amazing.
