I have right now in my frig 7 unopened containers and one opened of hummus.

What can I make with all of this..
Does Hummus go bad? How long does it have? There is no
date on the package at all.

I seem to be the only one in the house who will eat this (me and dd). Need meal ideas for this hummus.

Come on, I know there is a mama out there that has an awsome idea of what I can throw together for this.

I have tried to search hummus recipes and just get things on how to make hummus, need a recipe on a 'meal' with hummus in it.

I LOVE hummus, and eat it anyway I can. I like to have it on crackers, on sandwiches, with tortilla chips. I know its not recipes, but maybe it will help. You also might try freezing if you don't want to eat it all at once. Just an idea.

Peace.

We frequently use it as a sandwich spread, as my kids can't have mayo or the soy substitute. It's a great alternative to those two things, and an easy way to use it up if you eat a lot of sandwhiches!

- Spread on crackers
- As a veggie dip (carrots, peppers, cukes)
- In wraps (think peppers, sprouts, shredded carrots, greens, etc. Experiment with what you've got on hand)
- As a sandwich spread

Flavor it, for variety. I make roasted red pepper hummus -- just roast a pepper, remove the skin when it's black (place in a plastic bag for about 10 minutes after removing from the oven and the skin should slip right off), puree, and add to the hummus you already have. I also make spicy garlic hummus -- add extra garlic and whatever spices you like.

Ummm ... I know you can get olive hummus in the store, so that might be another option. DS likes cucumber dill hummus from the store, too, though I can't stand it.

Ditto the wraps.

It is good with cream cheese, cucumbers and sprouts.

I just made hummus pizza the other night...

prepare a frozen pizza dough (bake according to package directions), spread hummus on top, then top with favorite chopped veggies and favorite shredded cheese..bake 400 for about 10-15 minutes, til cheese is bubbly.

It was pretty darn good.

Find a way to make it into patties and fry it in a bit of olive oil and you'll have Falafel!

YUM!

You could have a Dipping Party! Like others suggested, you could spice up what you have, invite some friends over and have them bring the 'dippers' (crackers, veggies, pita chips, etc).

Aw, and here I thought I was going to save the day with my hummus pizza suggestion!

Seriously though, it does turn out really nicely. Hummus, some olives or peppers, possibly tomatoes, crumbled feta is nice, some cooked chicken (if you eat it). It's a nice change from the tomato sauce.

What about adding some to a soup (veggie or otherwise)? I guess it wouldn't be too good if it were particularly oily hummus, but if it wasn't, I could see it going very nicely as a thickener/creamer type addition to some soups.

My favorite is to spread it onto warmed pita bread. Top with spinach, onion, cucumber, tomato, etc and add a little olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Top with some feta and voila!

We do a quick variation on the pizza theme...
Use pita bread as the crust
Use hummus as the "sauce"
Saute some brocolli rabe or other greens and put on top of the hummus
Top it off with some parm cheese and broil until the cheese starts to brown.
We love this whenever we get Brocolli rabe from our CSA!

Hummus soup is delicious

I don't have an exact recipe, but I saute onions and zucchini (and whatever else) and add hummus blended with soup stock or salted water.

It's like bean soup but...hummus !

I make the sauce with hummus, yogurt and curry. Then mix with just about anything... finely chopped green beans, celery, shredded carrots, broccoli stems, cucumbers, pasta and tuna. It's great for cleaning out the veggie drawer of odds and ends. I've even been known to throw in left-over thai food.

It turns out that moderation is the key to good parenting.  Too bad we aren't allowed to talk about that here.

You can freeze it for later. I have a few tubs in the freezer because it was on super sale at the store. I make a yummy salad dressing with hummus, balsamic vinegar, EVOO, garlic and a bit of water. Sometimes I add some fructose if the balsamic is a bit sharp.
