Hummus Dippers


Maybe you knew that hummus is a dip, but did you know it can also be dipped?



Hummus Ingredients

  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • 4 tablespoons tahini
  • ¾ cup lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Dipper Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Hummus

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • ¾ cup bread crumbs (try whole wheat)

  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese

  • Large pinch of salt



To prepare hummus, puree peas in blender or food processor. Add remaining ingredients; blend until thick and smooth.

To prepare dippers, preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl. In separate bowl, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan and salt together. Set up hummus, beaten eggs and bread crumb mixture into an assembly line. Roll the hummus into 1-inch portions or balls and dip into eggs, then bread crumb mixture. Set breaded hummus on greased baking sheet 1 inch apart. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes and then turn on broil setting and brown dippers two to five minutes. Serve warm with favorite dipping sauce.
