Hummus is a tasty and nutritious snack, and making your own hummus is easy with these Slow Cooker and Instant Pot Hummus Recipes! And once you’ve made some homemade hummus, this post has recipe ideas for using it.
I’m a long-time fan of the middle eastern dip called Hummus, and even now that I’m a pretty carb-conscious eater, hummus is something I have to have occasionally! And hummus is easy to make in the slow cooker or the Instant Pot using dried beans from the pantry! You do remember how I am such a fan of cooking dried beans in the Instant Pot or the Slow Cooker and kicking the canned bean habit don’t you?
And now that so many people are stuck at home trying to use pantry ingredients I thought you might enjoy some of the tasty (and creative!) ideas in this collection of Slow Cooker and Instant Pot Hummus Recipes! And after you’ve made some hummus I’m also sharing links for a few recipes using hummus that I thought looked especially interesting; enjoy.
What is Hummus?
