What is Za’atar Hummus?
Za’atar hummus is the whipped garbanzo dip you love, upgraded with the zesty flavor of Mediterranean za’atar. Our ready-to-eat za’atar condiments offer fresh Mediterranean flavor and a nutty crunch that’s perfect stirred into your favorite hummus.
We recommend sticking with a basic flavor like plain, lemon or garlic hummus. This way, the spicy, bright, and fragrant za’atar spices get to shine through.
How to Make Za’atar Hummus?
The great part about this recipe is that it can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. For a 1-minute, two-ingredient za’atar hummus recipe, simply combine your favorite store-bought hummus with a heaping tablespoon or two of our za’atar condiment. And have fun experimenting with our savory and spicy versions.
If you have some extra time on your hands, you can also whip up your own hummus pretty quickly and easily. This three-minute recipe makes light, fluffy, tahini-rich hummus brightened with lemon juice. And while you have the food processor out, drizzle in as much za’atar as you like to liven up the mixture.
