Here’s Ideas on What to Eat with Hummus

Pita Chips and Pita Bread

Pita bread is a classic choice for eating with hummus. There’s nothing like warm pita bread slathered with freshly made hummus to bring a smile to your face.


The crunchy contrast of crackers added to the creaminess of hummus makes the perfect snack for someone on the go.


The sweetness of apples compliments the savory taste of hummus.

Buddha Bowls

Buddha bowls are a type of dish that is made up of a variety of small dishes. The term comes from the bowls being packed to the rim – resembling Buddha’s belly. They are typically vegetarian, but you can also add meat or fish. Add hummus to the top of the bowl for extra goodness.

Roasted Vegetables

If you’re looking for something healthy, you can’t beat roasted vegetables to hit the spot. Roasted carrots, zucchini, eggplant, cauliflower, and broccoli are just some roasted vegetable ideas to dip in your homemade hummus recipe.

If hunger strikes, having a variety of cut-up fresh vegetables in the refrigerator ready to eat is the perfect fast food. Here are some of my favorite fresh vegetables to eat with hummus:


Carrots are the perfect food for dipping into hummus. If you’re short on time, you can always use bags of baby carrots instead of chopping you’re own carrot sticks. They’re sweet and crunch, and they pair perfectly with the hummus flavors.


Cucumbers are another refreshing vegetable option. The coolness of the cucumber combines well with the creamy texture of hummus.

Fresh vegetables like cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, carrot sticks, radishes, and celery sticks all taste better when dipped into hummus.

Hummus is the perfect condiment to add to your favorite wrap recipe. Add the hummus directly to your wrap, and then add the rest of your favorite ingredients.

Sandwich Spread

Instead of mayo, why not use hummus as your spread on your favorite sandwich? This creamy spread elevates sandwiches and offers a healthy alternative to traditional spreads.

Avocado Toast

I like to add a layer of hummus to my avocado toast. It adds another layer of flavor that tastes amazing. Be sure to spread the hummus on the toast before adding the avocado.
