This Single Serving Hummus recipe is perfect for anyone craving for hummus but only wanting a small serving. It’s the traditional hummus made for 1 to 2 people.
Most hummus recipes are good for a bigger group (more than two people). As someone who only use hummus for pre-workout and afternoon snacks, I tend to waste a lot of it. And I hate wasting food!
With some experimentation, I came up with this small serving hummus recipe.
What to eat with hummus
Hummus is probably one of the most flexible foods you can have in your kitchen. You can pair it with almost anything!
Here are some good ideas on how to use your hummus:
Pair it with different veggies
You may already know this, but hummus is great for pairing with vegetables. Some of my faves include carrot sticks and celery hearts.
Eat it with apple slices
If you think peanut butter is the only thing that goes well with apple slices, then you are definitely missing out on something!
The creamy, nutty hummus goes well with sweet apples. This two makes a great, filling snack.
Put in on a sandwich, rice cake, or even waffle!
I just discovered this recently and oh man, it’s delicious! While you can definitely use hummus in sandwiches with roasted vegetables, it also goes well with something on the sweet side like peanut butter sandwiches!
I actually put hummus on my rice cake or waffle with peanut butter. I then top it with apple bits, banana slices, and/or with walnuts (yum!).
What you need to make a small serving hummus
How to make hummus for two
This is a very simple recipe that only calls for a food processor or small blender attachment. You basically just have to place the ingredients in the container (except for the cold water) and pulse/blend until everything’s well-incorporated.
Add the cold water and blend again until smooth.
Here’s a step-by-step video on how it’s done:
