This is a homemade hummus with roasted brussels sprouts recipe. It’s a unique twist on one of our favorite appetizer dips. Add some chile oil and grab a wedge of naan to experience an adventurous version of hummus.
Hummus…to be quite frank, it seems I’ve been grabbing for those tubs in the fridge section at the grocery store more often than making it at home. Probably a little lazy and probably because I’ve not been 100% satisfied with my original recipe. And to be even more frank, at times it has distracted me from grabbing a tub of Heluva Good French Onion Dip.
I’ve spent the last couple of weeks tinkering with my homemade hummus recipe. This is the recipe that appeared when I recreated an appetizer I loved at a local restaurant, Ya Ya’s Grilled Pita with Hummus. That hummus recipe with olives and feta is my “go-to”, but I was never perfectly pleased with the flavor. Always seemed a tad harsh. I’ve made a couple of changes. A little less of this and a little more of that, and now I’m a happy hummus maker. And it’s so easy to make at home. The hardest part is dragging out the food processor.
With that said, a couple of weeks ago, my friend Cauleen was raving about a hummus appetizer she ordered at a local restaurant (sorry, can’t remember the restaurant name), but when she described it as simple with quartered and roasted brussels sprouts and drizzled with chile oil I knew I had to make this one at home!
I took it to neighborhood gathering last night and it was a hit. Served with naan wedges and fresh vegetables, this was a crowd pleaser.
