I bought some for the first time today because everyone on MFP talks about how awesome it is. I totally agree! Thing is, I put roasted red pepper hummus on a whole wheat bagel thin and I don't think the bagel really brought out the flavor of the hummus like it should have.

So my question is what do you all put hummus on? Need some ideas!

I put it on pita chips or pita bread.

OMG what don't I put hummus on is the question:

- Pita chips
- Whole wheat pita
- All sorts of veggies
- As spread for sandwich instead of mayo
- Rolled in turkey deli meat

Endless possibilities

VEGGIES! I LOVE hummus!

Mmm, I love hummus. I usually put it on thin Triscuits or dip it into veggies. You could also use it in a sandwich instead of another kind of dressing.

salmon patties with sun dried tomato in olive oil and herbs MmmmmmmmmmM

pita bread/chips

I do use it as a dip for broccoli but usually use it on a La Tortilla whole wheat tortilla, the small 50 cal one with my eggs or on a Thomas bagel thin with eggs. I have used it as a spread on a turkey sandwich but I love it with my eggs in the morning!

I have these delicious wafer things, they are only 15 calories for this big crispy wafer bowl. I break pieces off of that and dip it in hummus(: <3

Veggies, crackers and rice cakes. I'm going to be trying some of these other suggestions too.

Yummmmm!!
Hummus is my FAVOURITE!!
I have it on Cruskits, Rice Crackers, or on Pita Bread. If i'm feeling extra healthy i'll have it with Carrots! I also use it as a salad dressing for my Chicken Salads instead of using Mayo!
My boyfriend has it mixed with Cottage Cheese on his Cruskits, or mixed with Onion Marmalade.
It's something that you can have with anything!

Hummus wraps using a 100 calorie La Tortilla Factory whole wheat tortilla with grilled veggies or with 4 oz. of sauteed boneless skinless chicken breast. So good. Much better than taking a big bowl of it and a loaf of pita bread and parking in front of the tv like I used to lol... I also once had a hummous and tabboule wrap in a restaurant which was amazing too.

I have been making hummous for 20 years (Middle Eastern ancestry here) but just yesterday wrote down the recipe and calculated the calories. 165 calories for a 1/4 cup. 1/4 cup goes a long way in the wrap though.

I love dipping carrot or celery sticks into hummus!

I also like toasting pitas a little and then breaking them up to use as "chips" for dipping.

I love the greek olive hummus! I chop up more black olives and then I put it on pita chips or triscuits. I usually like to use it as a dip with raw veggies.

I put mine on Flatouts w/ lettuce and ham or turkey slices.
