Remember when hummus used to be chickpeas, garlic, tahini and olive oil? Recently there's been a surge of different flavor combinations being introduced into hummus, helping to make appetizer orders almost irresistible.
Looking for a way to introduce an intriguing hummus offering to your starter menu? Check out the following recipes.
Pizza Hummus is reminiscent of pizza with tomato paste, oregano, basil and garlic.
Italian Hummus uses white beans and rosemary to provide an Italian feel.
Roasted Broccoli Hummus combines broccoli, toasted sesame seeds and parsley into traditional hummus.
Edamame Hummus replaces the chickpeas with edamame.
Pumpkin Hummus boasts pumpkin, Greek yogurt and Parmesan cheese.

Have a classic hummus on hand? Mix Ins are a simple way to kick it up:

Curry - blend in your favorite curry powder
Spicy - toss in some chopped jalepenos and roasted garlic for some heat
