20 + Weirdly Different Alternative Hummus Recipes You’ll Love

By Anisha Mistry

Can you believe there’s actually an  International Hummus Day? It’s on May 13th, just FYI. But you know what? Every day should be a day to celebrate hummus! It’s rich, creamy, high in protein and can be served so many ways – as an appetiser with pita chips, crisps or crudites; as a sandwich spread; smeared all over a jacket potato, as a sauce for pasta, in a Buddha Bowl, or even as a main course – just top it with olives, chopped tomatoes, cashews and whatever else you fancy, and served with hot Arabic bread to dip.  Basically, hummus is a kitchen essential; you should always have some on hand.

No matter what the ingredients, whipping the mixture up smoothly is key to creating a smooth and flawless dish. You’ll need either a food processor like a Vitamix or my favourite – a basic hand blender – to make these alternative hummus recipes. Although the dish is usually packed with calories thanks to its high tahini (sesame paste, for those wondering) and olive oil content, there’s such a wide variety of recipes here, you can pick the super calorific (like the boiled peanut dish), the skinny versions (like the raw zucchini version). For traditionalists, of course I’ve added a classic hummus recipe or two in here as well.

1.  Herby Avocado Hummus

This recipe is creamy and a delicious change from a classic hummus recipe. The avocado flavour shines through and compliments the nuttiness of the tahini.

2.  Sweet Potato  Hummus

A smooth sweet potato hummus, it’s brilliantly orange and bursting with flavour. It can be devoured with everything from toasted pita wedges, bite-sized vegetables pieces and quesadillas.

3. Caramelised Onion Hummus

This one’s flavours are sure to tingle your tastebuds! The  balsamic vinegar gives a slight sweetness to this savoury dip.

4.  Ember-Roasted Squash Hummus

This recipe is certainly a winner, and one which you will keep coming back to, thanks to the smokiness contrasted by the sweetness of the squash. A great recipe for autumn.

5. Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

Who’s in need of a low calorie hummus recipe? This recipe is seriously delicious, with the subtle sweetness of roasted cauliflower, give potency  with lemon, garlic and tahini – it turns out to be incredibly tasty.

6. Zucchini  Hummus

Finally! A lighter take on hummus. With mild flavour from the charred zucchini and an extra kick of garlic, this works as a great appetiser. If you want this to be a low cal treat, just reduce the amount of olive oil.

7. Red Lentil & Roasted Carrot  Hummus

Using sun-blushed red lentils instead of chickpeas is a great twist on a classic hummus, but it maintains all the great vegan protein.  

See the full recipe here.

8. Black Bean  Hummus

It’s the perfect snack with a comforting depth of flavour from both the black beans and garlic. You could say this is kind of a Mexican hummus – so tortilla chips are the perfect dipping companion.

9. Roasted Red Pepper & Mung Bean  Dip

If you’re in the mood for a sweet and tangy hummus, then this is it! The red pepper blended with subtle spices gives this dish its smoky-sweet flavour.

10. Butter  Bean (or Lima Bean)  Hummus

Newsflash – the Lima bean is back! Also known as the butter bean, just FYI. And it makes this hummus spread so creamy, it’s the perfect substitute for butter or margarine on bread.

See the full recipe here.

11. Best Ever Basic Hummus

Jamie Oliver’s roots may be far from Middle Eastern, but he nails this hummus recipe perfectly. All the classic ingredients – lemon, tahini, olive oil, chickpeas – are here. Simple, and beautiful.

12. Roasted Carrot  Hummus

Roasted carrots are always a winner, and when they’re blended to create a smooth hummus, they just get better. If you fancy more heat, start with a teaspoon of spice at a time and give it a taste for your desired level of intensity.

See the full recipe here.

13. Raw Zucchini  Hummus

Raw food is anything but dull – especially when you find a recipe like this! Simple and fast to make, too, since the zucchini needs no cooking.  

See the full recipe here.

14. Boiled Peanut  Hummus

Boiled peanuts as hummus? Why not? It’s pretty calorific, but also pretty delicious! Just have some crusty bread at the ready, and you’ve got a filling, protein rich meal.

See the full recipe here.

15. Black-Eyed Pea Hummus

This is an already wholesome recipe with loads of nutrients, which works perfectly as a lunch time treat with a variety of toasted bread with friends.

See the full recipe here.

16. Edamame  Hummus

Edamame hummus is a healthy twist on an old classic recipe, creating a nutritious, full-proof recipe, perfect for those days you want to enjoy healthy calories.

See the full recipe here.

17.  Carrot-Tahini Dip

Can ‘luxurious’ describe a hummus? If so, this is it! Just look at those vibrant, opulent colours and creamy consistency.

See the full recipe here.

18. Garlic Scape & Cannellini Bean Hummus

Cannellini beans blend with seasonal garlic to make this kind of Italian-ish hummus.  So why not serve with baked pizza dough to dip?

Hummus Alternative Recipes

19. Ultimate Hummus

This recipe has a creamy, flavourful hummus, of course, but it also includes everything on the plate – there’s a bit of parsley salad and roasted cauliflower to make this a complete meal, too (of course, vegans can just skip the poached egg).

 20. Chickpea Shwarma Dip

Baked chickpeas, a parsley-tomato salad, and a 4-ingredient garlic dill sauce sit atop this pile of yumminess from the Minimalist Baker, which only takes 30 short minutes to make, tops! Serve with some crusty bread or toasted pita, and you have yourself a hearty meal.

21. Thai Coconut Curry Hummus

This is a sweeter – yet still savoury – hummus, infused with Asian flavours cilantro and red curry paste. Goes really well with prawn crackers.

Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail.

We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.
