Hummus with Beef
Take your simple hummus dip to another level, top it with a perfectly spiced beef, onion and pine nuts. This recipe incorporates the hummus recipe I posted a while back.
How do you Make Hummus with Beef?
- Start by roasting pine nuts until golden. Set aside.
- Sauté onion until wilted, then add ground beef, salt/spices and cook.
- Make your hummus and spread out into a serving plate. You can use store bought hummus or make my easy hummus recipe.
- Top your hummus plate with warm minced beef mixture and sprinkle with fried pine nuts, garnish with chopped parsley, if you’d like.
- For fluffy hummus, add ice cube to the food processor. Sounds crazy right? The ice cubes help in whipping the hummus into a creamier texture.
- Don’t rush it! Let the food processor run for 4 to 5 minutes. Run the food processor for a few minutes so the hummus mixture will blend well enough to a smooth texture.
- Serve the hummus with warm ground beef mixture. Serve hummus at room temperature, but make sure to have the beef mixture is warm before topping your hummus.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can you freeze hummus?
Hummus freezes really well, I always make a big batch!
For this Hummus with beef recipe, I prefer to freeze beef separate from the hummus though. Also place cooked ground beef in an air tight container. It will keep well for up to 3 months. Thaw it in the fridge before serving.
Can you make it ahead of time?
Homemade hummus will keep for about a week covered in the fridge. You can make the seasoned ground beef ahead of time and store it separately for 3 days. When ready to serve, warm your beef and spread over hummus.
