Hummus is a delicious and healthy Middle Eastern treat when it’s prepared properly. Store-bought hummus can have about twice as many calories and far less nutritional value compared to hummus you make yourself.

Most hummus is vegan and gluten free, and yet also really filling and delicious. It’s a nearly unbeatable savory snack. But there are also sweet and “dessert” versions of hummus, and you’ll find some of those recipes here.

All hummus has a fair amount of fat, but don’t let that put you off. The fat in these recipes is nutritious and will help fill you up with fewer calories than other foods.

Plus, hummus has protein, complex carbohydrates, and a decent score on the “Glycemic Index”. In short, it’s a pretty healthy food that gives you lots of energy even though it tastes decadent.

You can make hummus at home with fewer calories (and fewer preservatives) and play around with different recipes for different flavors. It’s also much cheaper than buying hummus at the store.

This list contains recipes for very traditional styles of hummus from different regions. It also has recipes that are quite different – made with other types of beans, beats or avocado, for example. And it has dessert hummus recipes, too.
