Hummus is an amazing and healthy dip you can easily make at home in a variety of flavors and styles. Check out these hummus recipes that taste wonderful!
Hello, friends! Today I wanted to go over a yummy and exciting dip that has kind of taken the health food world by storm: hummus. There's just something delicious and wonderful about it, and you can use it on just about anything. I have said in many of my posts that I use it on sandwiches, wraps, and even just dunk various veggies into it. Hummus is amazing, guys. I buy it all the time. The problem with that is I sometimes want it to taste a certain way, and sadly I can’t always find my favorite brands. That’s where this post comes in. Today, I want to show you some great flavors of hummus, and tell you how to make it. Hummus is super easy to make, and it doesn’t take long at all. So, let’s go over some yummy hummus recipes!
Hummus is a dip made from chickpeas, and it’s thick, creamy, and absolutely delicious even in its classic form. This recipe here is a simple and easy hummus recipe that anyone can make. Totally classic. Plus, once you have a basic recipe like this one down, you can make any type of hummus you want.
I use the classic hummus recipe primarily as a dip for carrots, cucumbers, pita chips, and even cucumbers, but if you like other veggies it’s pretty awesome too. It’s also great as a condiment in sandwiches, wraps, and even on toast.
Another favorite and popular flavor is roasted red pepper hummus. It’s so simple to make for yourself, too. This recipe even tells you how to best roast the peppers. All you need to do is slice, pop in an oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit with garlic for about 10-15 minutes or until you can easily pierce the peppers. Let cool, then continue making your red pepper hummus. So simple and so yummy. Spicier hummus is great with cool veggies, and as a pop of flavor in wraps.

Probably my second favorite hummus ever! Sun dried tomato and basil hummus is like the most amazing thing. Rich, with yummy spices, and it’s perfect for veggie wraps, sandwiches, and toast. I love spreading it on toast and then melting just a bit of cheese on the top. It’s almost like a pizza that way. So yummy. You can find the hummus recipe here.
I wish it had a recipe for making your own sun dried tomatoes, because that would be awesome, but canned or jarred tomatoes can be just as good. On another note, if anyone has a great recipe for sun dried tomatoes, please share it with me!
This may look like guacamole, but it isn’t. It’s avocado hummus! Basically, you make regular hummus add in some avocados for a richer, creamier texture and flavor. It’s super good for you, and this is so yummy in wraps and sandwiches. There’s something about the avocados that just makes the wraps so much better. Plus, they are healthy!
This avocado hummus recipe is also a beautiful green color, and can be a fun dip to have out at a party. Remember: lemon juice helps keep avocados from browning, so make sure you have extra lemons handy to keep your hummus looking pretty.

Not gonna lie, I bought and tried this hummus one time on a whim just because of the color. It’s so pretty! And honestly it was delicious. Now that I have found this recipe here, I can totally make it at home! This beet hummus recipe always comes out a stunning magenta, and makes morning toast that much better. How can you not have a good day after eating a breakfast that’s colorful? Top with avocado slices, or even cucumber, and you’re good to go!
Of course, it’s also great for wraps, sandwiches, and just dipping veggies in as well. Why not go for a super colorful party platter and have both avocado and beetroot hummus for your guests? Or for just yourself. I’m not one to judge if you eat a party platter of food by yourself. I’ve definitely been guilty of that!
If you love southwest flavors, this spicy hummus is for you! The soft, sweet heat of the roasted poblano with sweet corn is amazing. I love this with pita bread, pita chips, and cool veggies like carrots and cucumbers. They just blend so well. I have added some into wraps before, but I normally mix it with a regular hummus so I don’t have too much heat building up in my mouth. Been there, done that. It’s still a delicious hummus dip, but too much can be a bad thing when it comes to spice and heat.
Also remember that it will get spicier the longer it sits, so keep that in mind if you think it’s not spicy enough for you on day one. Day two will be different! This recipe even shows you how to roast your own poblanos, which is super easy, as in literally pop the peppers in oven and broil until they start to blacken, turn over, and repeat. Then, place them in a container, seal it, and let the steam help you remove the skins. So awesome.
The last thing I have for you hummus-wise is dessert hummus. Yes, you can make dessert hummus flavors that taste like cookie dough or cake. It’s kind of heavenly and the best hummus ever! And, like every other hummus recipe, it’s easy to make! This one here gives you an amazing dessert hummus trio to try out. I’m looking forward to the cookie dough one myself.
Since veggies aren’t something you want to dip in these, what would you do? Eat it with cinnamon sugar pita chips or tortilla chips, spread on toast, or hey eat it with a spoon! They’re all yummy, and the perfect way to end the day.
There you have it, folks! Some awesome hummus recipes that you can easily make, and some dessert hummus recipes as well! Which was your favorite?
