This whipped hummus recipe is filled with unique and flavorful ingredients that are far from traditional, yet absolutely delicious! The creamy whipped hummus paired with dark amber honey is a fantastic party appetizer option or a snack for a crowd. This is the dairy-free version of the whipped feta and honey craze that’s become quite popular in restaurant menus.
How To Serve This Whipped Hummus For A Crowd
Since we are still having to keep in mind how we interact with friends and family right now, it’s always a great idea to plan ahead with any type of party or gathering where food is present. For a dish like this, it can be made ahead of time and plated in single-serving dishes prior to guests arriving. This helps to avoid any potential germ exposure if a more “family-style” type of gathering were an option. Below are a few tips to remember when planning for a group with this dish:
- Be sure to plan accordingly on how much you will make with the size of glass, as well as the number of people you plan to entertain with. Once confirmed, adjust the recipe to ensure you have enough to serve.
- When plating this dish ahead of time you’ll want to serve the hummus in a shallow cup so that your guests are still able to dip items without having too much of an issue due to the depth of the glass.
- Since we will be adding honey to the top of the hummus, the concern of cracking, or drying is not too worrisome. Be sure to wrap the hummus if plating ahead of time. Do not add honey if plating ahead of time, or any of its toppings.
- If possible, adding the hummus to a large plastic bag or piping bag will create the smoothest and neatest plating. Plating in a circular motion you can use the piping bag to plate in cups. If serving veggies within the cup, add them prior to adding your honey or garnishes. Next, top with your amber honey of choice as well as any greens, za’atar, pepper, and your chives.
I have both of these food processors above and love both of them. The middle Cuisinart is a bit more “sturdy” however both work well in terms of processing.
Whipped Hummus & Honey
- 1 can garbanzo beans
- 1 can cannellini beans
- 1-2 garlic cloves medium
- 1.5 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp za’atar make sure it does not have salt
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- ½-1 tsp salt
- ⅛ cup fresh chives
- 1-3 tbsp dark amber honey to serve
- Start off by washing your beans in cool water and strain any excess water and until the bubbles no longer appear. If you are able to cook your beans from scratch with seasonings prior that's wonderful, however canned beans will work just fine to speed the up the cooking process.
- Next, using your food processer blend all of your ingredients except your herbs, oil, and honey. If you have a vitamix or a high speed blender, this can work as well.
- Once creamy, add in oil and process until desired texture.
- When ready to serve, plate the hummus in one area of your plate with a larger spoon and smooth it into a circular motion to create a swirl. Add honey as desired and top with chives, herbs, and za'atar! Serve with veggies, warm pita, toasted bread, or chips.
