TIP OF THE DAY: Make Your Own Hummus Flavor

What’s better than a healthy snack of hummus?

Our answer: Hummus that’s been garnished with something just as healthy, for additional layers of flavor.

That’s the latest good idea from Tribe Mediterranean Foods. Their newest line, Tribe With Toppings (formerly called Tribe Origins), offers a “topped” line of hummus in seven delicious varieties.

All-natural and extremely creamy (research showed that was what consumers wanted), the line uses Tribe’s Classic Hummus as a base.

We’ve purchased different hummus brands in some 20 different flavors, from artichoke and Kalamata olive to sundried tomato. The flavors are blended into the hummus.

We love them, but we equally love the festive look of Tribe With Toppings. There’s no reason you can’t combine the two concepts.

So grab some pita bread, lentil chips or a spoon, and dig in.

While we don’t know the secret Tribe With Toppings recipes, we tasted them, looked at the ingredients, and then made our own versions, patterning them after the Tribe flavors.

Prefer black olives to green olives? Then
customize your own topping for hummus.

Everything should be finely chopped, but otherwise, you have free rein to use chipotle, jalapeño, horseradish, lemon zest or whatever else grabs you. While Tribe With Toppings has a base of plain hummus, you can use flavored hummus to create your own innovative recipes. And remember: fresh herbs make everything taste better.

  • Cilantro Chimichurri Hummus. Make a blend of fresh parsley and cilantro in olive oil. Season with roasted garlic, dried garlic, onions, spices, lime juice and jalapeño.
  • Mediterranean Style Hummus. Top hummus with a light drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a dusting of paprika with herbs (try oregano and thyme plus fresh parsley).
  • Olive Tapenade Hummus. Tribe uses chopped green olives, but feel free to substitute black olives. Add roasted garlic, dried garlic and your favorite spices and herbs to a red bell pepper purée.
  • Roasted Vegetable Hummus. Try a base of tomato purée flavored with roasted garlic, diced carrots, diced red bell pepper and your favorite spices. Tribe doesn’t use onions, but you certainly can.
  • Savory Mushroom Hummus. Earthy mushroom flavors pair well with hummus. Finely dice the mushrooms, sauté lightly and combine with roasted garlic, dried roasted garlic, onion and spices. You can purée half of the mushrooms for a base, or simply sprinkle the combined ingredients atop the hummus.
  • Spicy Red Pepper Hummus. We made our home version with red pepper purée, using a jar of roasted red peppers/pimentos and red pepper flakes. Minced fresh parsley made it even perkier.
  • Zesty Spice & Garlic Hummus. Blend minced garlic and your favorite spices into tomato paste.
    You can also use hummus with toppings in a delicious hummus sandwich.
