Hummus pairings

I finally found a hummus recipe that I love! Now I want to explore different ways to use the hummus. I find some of the normal veggie dippers, like celery, a little blah. Any creative ideas on how I can pair hummus with various types of food? Maybe even serve it on cooked food (I was thinking something like steamed broccoli)? Thanks for the help!

Two words: sandwich spread. Lose the mustard or mayo and use the hummus instead!

I also love tossing cooked veggies (like carrots or roasted cauliflower) in hummus and garnishing with some lemon juice and parsley

Love this recipe from cooklynveg http://www.food52.com/recipes... and tiggybee's http://www.food52.com/recipes... and everything JessicaBakes recommends. Also think it would be great with broccoli, as you suggested.

A couple more ideas - use it on pizza, or flatbread with different vegetables you like. Also, a wrap with hummus, quinoa and vegetables.

I figured out that I like hummus mixed with baba ganouj (which I recently mastered) better than either one on its own (ditto mashed potato mixed with mashed rutabaga, same concept). Flavor and texture of these combos are better than either alone. I like to put some in a little bowl, drop in chopped fresh tomato and crunchy croutons and spoon it up like a savory sundae. could we stuff a pepper or a cabbage leaf with it?

Use hummus in place of mayo for deviled eggs--that's probably one of my most-requested creations. Just blend a few of the cooked egg yolks into it for a richer, creamier hummus, add a little cumin and coriander, and garnish with smoked paprika and chopped parsley.

It's also great with a fresh cucumber, olives, and feta plate--sort of like a cross between a cheese plate and a veggie plate.

Or swirl a bit of sweet roasted red pepper paste/chopped sweet red pepper (such as the genius recipe recently featured) into the hummus and serve it with toasted pita or naan.

It will also go well alongside a nice tabbouleh salad. The traditional version is very green with chopped parsely, mint and bulgar. I like to make mine in a French style using couscous.
