What does red pepper hummus taste like?

Red bell pepper and hummus taste a bit peppery with a little bit of heat if you’re adding in some spice.

How long does homemade hummus last?

Once you make the Instant Pot hummus, you need to make sure that you eat it within 3-4 days.

What does tahini do for hummus?

Tahini is a MUST for hummus! Adding tahini adds great flavor and texture to each and every bite. You can make hummus without it, but I never end up liking it quite as well.

What foods pair well with hummus?

This is what makes hummus so great! You can eat hummus with cut-up celery, carrots, radishes, and any other veggies.

Or you can use crackers to dip them in as well. Pita bread is a favorite also!

If you’re looking for a simple spread to add to sandwiches, hummus for the win!

How to store hummus

Make sure that you’re storing hummus in an airtight container and keeping it in the fridge. It does need to be kept cold for a longer lifespan. Before enjoying hummus, make sure to stir it with a spoon to mix it back up.
