I have frozen a lot of hummus today but also closed my eyes and jumped into weird food land with a cheesecake experiment and also some ice cream.

They are both edible and the cheese cake is actually delicious. I made a crust that included sesame seeds and added some sour cream the filling.

The ice cream is still being judged... I added extra tahini and made an icecream base, then froze with chopped chocolate chunks and pistachios (going for that chocolate coated halvah flavor), The flavor is good, but the texture is a little grainy...

how about using it for the topping of a middle eastern shepherd's pie? moroccan spices, lamb, peas, carrots, tagine gravy...

That's an interesting idea... how do you think mixing it w/ mashed potatoes and then baking it off would work?

i don't see why it couldn't work with spuds. gobs of butter doesn't hurt a starch, either.

hmm, now i'm thinking it could be used as a topping for baked/broiled fish. with garlic and lemon, and parsley. you know, making a crust to keep a tender filet moist.

Sorry I don't have any ideas for using hummus, since I have never made it, actually I never had any, I have been wanting to try it though, does anyone have a good recipe for a newbie to try.

Chicken Pita

I love grilling (or roasting) chicken, eggplant, and zucchini and then serving this in a pita with the leftover hummus. Japanese eggplant is in season at our farmer's market in Santa Monica. They have a thinner skin which is really nice for a pita.

We eat a great deal of hummus in my family. Freezing it in ice cube trays works great. Just thaw out what you want to use to make sandwiches, snacks etc.

You said that one of the ingredients was garlic. Now I do love my garlic, but in cheese cake or ice cream???

I'm so glad that I came across this thread. I made my first homemade bath of hummus just last night and being that I live alone, made way too much to eat before it goes bad. I wasn't sure if it would freeze well or not. I like the ice cube tray idea.

My question is...how long appx. will it stay fresh in my fridge? I used lemon, garlic, and spices.
