Looking for hummus variation recipes

I'm looking to make a different flavor besides basic or roasted red pepper hummus. Any ideas out there?

I like Trader Joe's Jalapeno and Cilantro Hummus.

Kalamata olives are great in hummus.

You might try adding a handful of fresh parsley. Makes the hummus green and adds a nice fresh flavor.

Yum, that sounds like a great combo...maybe with lime instead of lemon. Thanks!

That would probably work in both the basic AND red pepper. That's a definite try!

Sun blushed tomatoes blitzed into the hummus are great....or pesto (either basil based or the red version) - maybe with some mayo or creme fraiche/sour cream.

I do kalamata olive hummus often. The olives really add a great flavor.

Also, consider roasted garlic as an add-in.

I like the idea of adding Kalamata olives. I often add a spoon of almond butter or peanut butter. I'm going to make some right now! Yum!

Kalamata fan here, too! I also like another Trader Joe's version (no longer available, IIRC) that had a squeeze of lemon juice and some lemon zest.

Haven't had a chance to try any of these yet, but Serious Eats has a long list of variations. Maybe you'll see something that tickles your taste buds:
