Paprika Hummus Dip | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen

Paprika Hummus Dip

November 7, 2012Teresa

Paprika Hummus Dip is amazing. I love hummus! And, I’ve found another hummus dip recipe I think you’ll love. This is a great way to eat raw veggies. It’s healthy, low calorie, gluten and dairy free, and delicious! Hummus is so easy to make, too.

You can usually have this made and ready to serve in about 15 minutes. It’s great for potlucks and family outings if you’re wanting to bring a healthy snack along and avoid all the high calorie items. I think this would be great to take along in the car for long drives. If you have all your veggies pre-cut it’s very easy to work with.

I like to keep this as a snack in the refrigerator with lots of fresh veggies ready, then I’m not tempted to eat garbage. This is a great dip to take to parties of any kind or to have on hand for your kids when they get home from school and are starving!

While hummus is traditionally served with pita chips, I like to serve hummus with fresh veggies as it’s healthier and lower calorie than pita bread or chips. I recommend the following as great options to serve with this fantastic dip: carrot chips, sugar snap peas, snow pea pods, radish slices, julienned golden beets or jicama, bell pepper strips (red, orange, and yellow are best), yellow squash or zucchini slices, grape tomatoes, cauliflower or broccoli florets, even chunks of cheese.

I found this recipe at FoodNetwork.com and it is one of Dave Lieberman’s recipes. I have made several changes to better reflect my palate and to increase the flavors. If you are partial to spicy foods, I recommend increasing the cumin, paprika, black pepper and parsley in this dip as I have. I think you will enjoy this hummus recipe.

When I originally published this recipe in November 2012, it was way before I purchased my Canon camera so I could take better pictures. I’ve been remaking old blog recipes so I can retake the pictures and exchange them with the inferior, poor quality pictures initially posted.

We had some friends in our Sunday school class recently move into a new home so I took them a meal. They requested healthy food options, so I thought Paprika Hummus Dip would be a nice snack for them to nibble on whenever they got hungry while unpacking. These pictures (taken May 2015) were so much better than the first time around. Hopefully, you’ll think so too.

    I’ve never thought to use sesame oil in hummus but I bet the flavor is wonderful! I’ll have to try that some time. 🙂

      It usually just uses tahini (sesame paste). But the original recipe didn’t even include that. I added the tahini extra.
