We love hummus at our house. It’s healthy, filling, and a quick snack. I’ve always been intimidated by making my own hummus. I know it’s not that hard. But, it seems like such a process to get all the ingredients that I like to go in mine. Plus, finding tahini in stock at a grocery store or even finding the aisle it’s on in the grocery store is a challenge. When you ask what aisle it’s on, people look at you like you’re crazy.
So when Bush’s sent me their samples of Hummus Made Easy, I was excited!
I got a streak of motivation for fun in the kitchen and thought I’d try and come up with a fancy recipe since making the hummus was so easy. (All you do is pour it in a food processor, pulse it, and it’s done.)
So I did. I made a “Fancy Sandwich” using the Bush’s Hummus Made Easy as a starting point to build around my sandwich. I’m really a sucker for good sandwiches anyway. When going out to eat, it doesn’t surprise my family or friends at all if I pick Panera Bread of McCalisters. Yum!
Check out my Fancy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Sandwich. Delicious.
First, I started off with making the hummus, since that was my motivation point. The next thing you need when making a good sandwich is good bread and good cheese. If you don’t have good bread or good cheese, it can ruin a good sandwich. These are two areas in our house where I don’t skimp on the grocery budget. There are many other places to save when buying groceries, but cheese and bread are not it.
For me, I picked up some Asiago Cheese Bread. It had a bit of a strong flavor, but it worked well with my sandwich creation. For the cheese, I chose a sliced Colby Jack.
I layered my sandwich with the Bush’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, real roasted red peppers, fresh spinach, avocado, egg, a slice of cheese, and then sprinkled it with black peppercorns.
I got it all together to put on the table for my family to try and they all gave a thumbs up.
So YAY for the EASY to make Bush’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and my fancy sandwich.
Scroll down to the bottom of this post and print off the recipe! Make it this week. Bush’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is the key ingredient to making the sandwich awesome.
But to tell you the truth, my favorite thing about the Hummus Made Easy is how quick and easy it is just to make a simple dip for lunch.
I had my 6-year-old daughter whip us up some of the black bean hummus dip and it was amazing and she did a great job! She had the dip ready for us to munch on in less than five minutes.
As we were munching on the dip, I went ahead and helped her make one of our lunch staples. She was eating it right out of the food processor before I could get it served up on a cute plate!
We have black bean/ cheese quesadillas for lunch on a regular basis. (They are filling, nutritious, and full of fiber.) But, this time, we used the Bush’s Black Bean Southwest Hummus in place of the plain black beans. It made the quesadilla so much better! The texture and flavor was perfect! They were not near as messy and much easier to eat. The kids loved them and it didn’t take any longer to make. (I added pepperonis to them and it was a great addition!)
Yipee! So it will definitely be Southwest Black Bean Hummus quesadillas for lunch from now on.
The kids cleaned the dip up and requested more Quesadillas.
So Mom’s—– I’m telling you. If you want a quick and easy lunch, grab Bush’s Hummus Made Easy from Walmart in the bean aisle and whip up a quick quesadilla or dip for your family. They are great for weekend lunches or late night dinners. Or if you are feeling creative, make a fancy sandwich (with good bread and cheese, of course).
The dips also make hosting at the last minute a cinch! Come back later this week to see the dip I threw together for an impromptu get together at my house.
My favorite is the Southwest Black Bean Hummus!
