Smoky Roasted Garlic Zummus

Smoky Roasted Garlic Zummus (Zucchini Hummus) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #hummus #recipe

Is it just me or is this zummus smiling at us? Tomorrow is National Zucchini Day! I am super excited because Mom and Dad brought me some of their beautiful striped zucchini from their garden. I had received one large “gift” zucchini a bit ago from a mystery donor (someone who brought zucchini to work […]


Cilantro Coconut Curry Hummus

Cilantro Coconut Curry Hummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #curried #hummus #dip #recipe

I have a beautiful circle of yoga friends. Every Wednesday night we meet for yoga, then we go for wine. We’ve been doing this every Wednesday night for years and it’s made Wednesdays the night we all look forward to every week. We have laughed and cried together and shared so many special moments, birthday celebrations, and quite […]


Avocado Jalapeno Zummus

Avocado Jalapeno Zummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #zucchini #hummus #recipe

I want to start a new trend. I think “Zummus” should be a new word in the dictionary, kind of like the word “Zoodles” has taken over the foodie blog scene. Want to help me? Create your own version of Zummus and post it/share it/pin it (tag or message me and I’ll share it too!) […]


Asparagus Dill Hummus

Asparagus Dill Hummus Recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #asparagus #hummus #recipe

I had just a little bit of asparagus left … most years I have it in plenty because my parents have a HUGE asparagus bed and they have way more than they can eat, but this year was different. The asparagus was late, and not as abundant as usual, and then my parents left on […]


Classic Creamy Hummus – 2 Ways

Classic Creamy Hummus ~ 2 Ways Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #delicious #hummus #recipe #pickyourflavor

This post is for those of you who buy hummus at the store. I used to do that. I was convinced there was no way I could make hummus that tastes that good. But after a little trial and error, I discovered that I CAN make that hummus–for a fraction of what the pre-made stuff costs and […]


Mediterranean Smoked Turkey Wrap

Mediterranean Smoked Turkey Wrap ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #healthy #lunchbox #wrap #recipe

I’m doing a series of lunchbox cooking classes at work and all kinds of fun ideas were flooding through my head for recipes I could feature. My mind drifted back to a simple supper I made for myself one time after a long camping weekend when we stayed up way too late, lazed around on Sunday and when […]


Sweet Maple Pumpkin Spice Hummus

Sweet Maple Pumpkin Spice Hummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #autumn #hummus #recipe

Adapted from The First Year Blog The taste of pumpkin and all those lovely autumn pumpkin spices in a healthy sweet maple dip that is reminiscent of hummus. Well actually it IS hummus, minus the garlic and tahini, then add in pumpkin puree, peanut butter (to stand in for the tahini), pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup. […]


Buffalo Chicken Chickpea Salad

Buffalo Chicken Chickpea Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #salad #recipe

Chicken salad with a kick! Stirring in some buffalo chicken sauce give this crunchy chicken salad that buffalo hot wings taste, without all the fat and extra calories. A bit of celery and carrot add the crunch factor. For extra protein and fiber, this recipe uses hummus in place of some of the mayonnaise (thus […]


Sriracha Hummus

Sriracha Hummus ~ Recipe & a bit of the history of hummus from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

The classic hummus kicked up a notch with the addition of Sriracha, a hot sauce that adds both flavor and a bit of heat to this delicious, healthy Mediterranean dip. My friend at work saw me eating this and said to me, “Why don’t they just call it bean dip?” … my answer to her […]


Basil Rosemary Sundried Tomato Hummus

Basil Rosemary Sundried Tomato Hummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hummus #recipe

What’s the perfect snack food? camping food? carry with you and spread on anything food? Sandwich spread? Marvelously garlicky dip for just about EVERYTHING? Yeah, hummus. Hummus is one of those “love at first bite” foods for me. I remember sitting on pillows on the floor in a funky restaurant in Minneapolis with my parents. […]


Hummus Havarti Harvest Pizza

Hummus Havarti Harvest Pizza

I woke up early this morning. There is a chill in the air. It is cool enough to open the windows and to sit on the patio and have a cup of tea. The fresh air smells so wonderful after the stale air conditioned air I’ve been breathing all summer. There are tomatoes on my […]


Zummus {A zucchini-lima twist on hummus}

Zummus: A Zucchini Lima Bean Twist on Hummus

It’s funny how a recipe evolves sometimes. The other night I was talking to my yoga instructor/artist/foodie friend and she was telling me how she had made Baba Ganoush (a middle eastern eggplant dip) with zucchini, and she had done the zucchini on the grill so it had this wonderful smoky flavor and I was thinking […]

Gorgeous Greek Layer Dip with Toasted Pita Chips

Greek Layer Dip with Hummus and Tzatziki

This is my first of a series of 31 Days of Connecting through Food. I am on a total Greek food kick lately. I love Greek food and we have no good Greek places in town, so if I want Greek food, I have to make it. Greece is definitely on my mind. My daughter […]


Cannellini Bean Hummus with Feta & Oregano

Cannellini Bean Hummus with Feta Cheese and Oregano

I have a not-so-secret fascination with hummus. That creamy garlicky lemony dip with a kick of tahini … ah it is one of my very favorite foods. I snack on it, spread it on my sandwiches, would probably bathe in it if I had enough of it! Well, no, that would be a waste. Because […]


A Simple Sunday Meal for a Very Tired Camper

Hummus Feta Tomato Goat Cheese Pinon Pita

We went camping at a folk festival this weekend. This is something I haven’t done in years, so I had forgotten what it’s like to live without computers, internet, blogging, twitter, facebook, electricity, hot water … even cell phone coverage was iffy and all our phones worked so hard trying to find a signal they […]


Basil-iferous Hummus

Basil-iferous Hummus

Hummus is one of those amazing things I could eat and eat and never tire of … the soft texture of it on my tongue with the intense flavor of garlic, lemon, and sesame all blend together so wonderfully. I have tried many hummus recipes over the years, but never found one that quite satisfied […]
