I like it as a salad dressing. Dilute it with a little bragg's and fresh orange juice; it's delicious.

Ritz crackers with a Kalamata olive.

Bell peppers, broccoli, cucumber (though I am not entirely sure if that is low carb?) and carrots (but, same thing as cucumber - I don't think they adhere to the low carb thing). Mmm, maybe cauliflower would be yummy?
HTH!

I used to make cucumber sandwiches, instead of crackers.

Red, green, orange, yellow peppers. Celery, carrots, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes (you could also slice a hot house tomato and make a sandwich with hummus in the middle), make a lettuce wrap with hummus (I use hummus as spreads, all the time). I have also used it as a dip instead of ketchup or bbq sauce...you can make or buy plain hummus and flavor it with a bbq flavor and its pretty good.

Carrots and Celery are my favorite. If you are not staying away from Carbs altogether I like to use a thin layer on my sandwiches and wraps. Especially the roasted red pepper flavor.

Whole-grain naan bread. Amazing flavor with any flavor of hummus.

I just polished off half an orange bell pepper with some! Yummy!!!

Joseph's whole wheat mini pita bread, or put it in a wheat tortilla and grill it

But if you're not eating those carrots or peppers are good

Thanks for all of the great ideas!!!! I didn't dig peppers with it for some reason but I LOVE most everything else suggested! I am staying low carb (most days) but getting them with veggies is the goal! I LOVE Sabra roasted garlic!!! I wonder if there are any tortilla chip substitutes besides low carb tortillas you can bake that would be good?? I have a recipe for a pizza crust that is actually all cauliflower, cheese and some spices.......I may have to try that and see if the "crust" makes good chips!!!

The first time I tried it I ignored the carrot sticks my friends were pushing and opted for cheetos instead. blushing In my defense, I can't stand carrots and the cheetos kinda resembled them so I figured close enough!

I like red peppers and sugar snap peas. I'm sure there are other vegetables I'd like too but those are my favorite.

My nephew eats it with those those baked packaged veggie sticks that are supposed to keep you from wanting potato chips.

Cucumber slices or any other veggie. It's also good instead of mayo on a sandwich. It's great to add to crackers or use as a dip with chips too.

I like hummus with pita bread. If you're doing the low-carb diet, try some broccoli or cauliflower. Or some mushrooms.

I eat hummus with pita bread, on toast, tortilla chips, baby carrots, celery, peppers, raw broccoli, any sort of veggie really. I also put it in wraps as a dressing. ;)

With pita bread, is still my favorite. I like to eat it for breakfast and put it in the toaster, so it's hot and fluffy/doughty/crunchy in certain parts. So delicious with a tub of cold/creamy hummus.

Vegetables are always great with hummus. Triscuits are great, too, because they offer a good amount of protein and fiber.

I eat it with rice crackers. I don't like it that much with vegetables... and rice crackers have very few calories
