What to do with lemon hummus?

I don't like it. Can i make some sauce with it? Any ideas?

  1. I've seen salad dressing recipes made from hummus. The lemony flavor would work well, IMO

    1. Mix it with yogurt to make a dressing or serve it with spicy baked fish.

      1. You could use it to coat chicken or fish, then roll in breadcrumbs and bake. I've never tried this, but I don't think baking the hummus would change it drastically.

        You could experiment with a middle eastern type lasagne. Layer of pita, layer of hummus, layer of olives and spices, lather, rinse, and repeat.

        Kind of depends on how much you have, and how badly you dislike it.

        1. if you don't like it? throw it out. why throw good money after bad? i very much dislike hummus.

            Good point.

            If the OP doesn't like ~hummus~, the best thing to do is put it in a bowl, warm some nice crusty French bread, mix up some mojitos and invite the neighbors over!

              hummus doesn't exactly make me think of mojitos, but yeah, that's one way to not waste it, and still not eat it. lol.

                or put it in the breakroom at work! vacuum cleaners

            2. I hate sour hummus, but can usually rescue it by stirring in lots of tahini.

                it's the tahini that ruins 'classic" humus for me and no amount of other ingredients can disguise its presence.
