Making up a batch of hummus takes very little time, and I love that you can change up the flavors from roasted red pepper hummus to wasabi ginger hummus. For this recipe, I’ve adapted it from a basic garlic flavored hummus, my favorite all time flavor, then before baking, top it off with a nice dose of buttery, toasted pine nuts. Enjoying it hot enhances the flavors a beautiful way and is a must for your next party.

When the weather is cold, there is nothing quite like feasting on warm, comfort food with plenty of crusty bread on the side. This surely meets that comfy food requirement, and makes for a great appetizer for your next get together.

  1. Warm hummus is the way to go. The flavor is better warm. I think I’ll whip some up tomorrow. I have all of the ingredients! Hmmm…no pita bread. Trip to the store after all. 🙂

  2. Thanks for this. I overdid the garlic in my batch today and was looking for solutions. I didn’t know if baking hommous was a thing and here you are 🙂 It’s in the oven now and I’m hoping the baking removes the crazy raw garlic aftertaste.

    1. Hi Jennifer! YAH! I”m so glad you were able to find this, it is really nice and I hope it helped mellow the garlic for you!
