Can we all just eat hummus for dinner and call it a day?

Cause that is kind of how I want this Monday to go down. A big bowl of hummus and a big side of fresh naan for dipping.

Like YES.


Hummus Dinner for the win!

OKOK, but first, can we talk about this weekend and how it was the perfect first weekend of June? Things have finally gotten green and colorful here. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to see color again. It was a LONG winter with a very snowy and cold spring, so the long summer days, green grass and blossoming flowers are incredibly welcomed.

How about you guys? Are you feeling the same way?

My brother, Brendan who is currently living in Portland (he moves around a bit…) said is was 102 there. WHOA! Why can I not live there? That sounds amazing! They floated the river all weekend long and I have to say, it looked pretty fun. Were any of you doing the same? I have got to live vicariously through all of you guys right now because I am currently in cram mode for the next twenty-eight days…deadlines, deadlines, DEADLINES. It’s a little stressful, but oddly… I am doing OK. Although, I have my moments, like Friday… that was kind of rough.

Good news is that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and a vacation with my name on it waiting there for me. Or at least I hope so, I need to figure out how to get a freaking passport, but once I do that, I’ll be good go.

Why is dealing with the government always so tricky?!? UGH.

Alight, more details on all that soon, but let’s move on to this Farmers Market Hummus.

I have not always been a hummus person. It really wasn’t until last year, when I started making my own hummus, that I started to enjoy it. Once I started making it myself, I never looked back, it seems I make at least a batch a week. I love dipping in veggies for a snack, or turning it into and easy weeknight meal, which is kind of what I did here.

I don’t know about you guys, but put a bowl of homemade hummus in front of me with some naan (or ok, sometimes even just a spoon) and I will go to town. A lot of times on nights when I’m not starving for dinner (meaning I ate way too much of whatever I was shooting that day), I’ll toss together a rough chop of fresh veggies and or fruits and throw them on a pile of hummus. Add a side of naan or bread, and dinner equals DONE.

Simple, healthy and super satisfying.

I figured with the warmer weather, longer days and abundance of produce popping up at the farmers markets that it was time I share my “single lady” dinner with you guys.

Obviously this is just as great as an appetizer or snack as it is for a simple dinner, but I feel like we all have those days when just about all we can muster is to throw together a giant bowl of hummus.

I mean, you know what I am talking about right?

K, cool.

The recipe starts with my basic GO-TO hummus recipes. I’ve perfected it to my liking and use it as a base for all my hummus variations, it’s delish. For my toppings…aka my most favorite part, I go BIG.

Hey, go big or go home, right?

It’s alway something a little different, but the combo I am showing you guys here is my favorite. It’s a mix of all the best summer farmers market produce. I am talking zucchini, summer squash, fresh sweet corn, heirloom tomatoes, sweet peaches + nectarines, cherries, basil and watercress. Add a handful of toasted, salted seeds and a sprinkle of feta + a drizzle of olive oil and DONE.

Honestly, this may seem like, “ok, duh”, it’s just hummus. But give this a try, it will be your new favorite for everything from backyard parties, to lunches, to quick snacks… to single lady dinners.

Trust me. 🙂

OH and don’t forget the carbs…I like naan, pita, toasted bread and or pita chips. Obviously.

  1. This recipe is awesome! I actually made it twice this week. First time I made it almost exactly as the recipe stated but varied it as follows:
    used store-bought hummus (sorry just didn’t have the extra time 🙂
    diced up some persian cukes (a great addition!)
    grilled the zucchini – just cause I love grilled zucchini
    added some thinly sliced scallions
    But the ingredients you listed really added the zip – loved the mint, basil. arugula! Also thought the pepitas and sesame seeds were terrif!
    Tonight I made it again for my “kids” and grandkids and made it like a composed salad with the various topping circled around it so people could pick and choose. Got rave reviews. Tieghan, I gave you ALL the credit. I’m like a walking advertisement! U R AMAZING!

  2. Pro-tip: boiling and simmering your chickpeas for half an hour and then removing the skins guarantees silky smooth hummus that keeps its consistency! Can’t wait to throw in summer veggies, looks absolutely delicious!

  3. This looks soooo good and perfect for a fast, fuss-free, but healthy dinner! If it makes you feel better I’m in crunch mode myself for board exams next week. Your blog is a nice little break every day. Keep going, you’re almost there and it will be so worth it!

    1. Thanks so much! The motivation is nice! As weird as it is, its nice knowing other people are crunching to haha! I exams go well for you! Good luck! (:

  4. To peel or not to peel; that is the question… I’ve done both, and I gotta say, if I have the time, I peel. It *does make a difference! Total gorgeousness with this bowl of farmers market freshness! Oh and I’m all over the Naan with hummus! FTW

  5. I’ll have to try your miso paste version of hummus. I make your almond butter version all the time and get SO MANY compliments on it. It’s THE best. You’re THE best! Can’t wait to make this for BBQs and camping trips.

  6. I have never, ever thought to add fruit to my hummus but now I can’t think of anything more wonderful.

  7. I would need a very tiny bowl of this because I would eat far too much especially if I had naan with it–oh I love that with anything.

  8. Those toppings totally elevate hummus! Must try this soon.

  9. love this so much! All of the veggies on there! And the peaches?! It looks so perfect for a summer dinner/snack/whatever. And now you’ve got me hungry for naan. Yum!

  10. That is the BIGGEST bowl of hummus I’ve ever seen! i want to just dive in and start swimming in it–is that weird? At least before I eat it all, which doesn’t give me a lot of swimming time, haha!

  11. Creamy and delicious this is a meal all by itself. I love your combo of toppings! I wouldn’t have thought to add the fruit, definitely next time!
