Think you need butter and milk to make flavorful mashed potatoes? Not if you have a container of hummus around! For the past few months I have actually been a bit obsessed with hummus, not only enjoying it as a dip, but also in recipes. It is definitely one of those wonderful convenience ingredients that can immediately make a dish pop with little to no fuss.
Though I must admit, I was not clever enough to dream up this easy match from Chef Colombe Jacobsen. She developed several recipes for Sabra Hummus (currently my favorite brand of hummus!), and this low-fat, vegan, gluten-free, food allergy-friendly, all natural idea for healthy hummus mashed potatoes is just one of her many creations.
According to Colombe, “This is a lighter, dairy-free version of the classic mashed potatoes. Try with your favorite hummus flavor for a nice variation, like Chipotle Hummus for a delicious smoky taste or Supremely Spicy for a nice kick.”
This recipe is naturally dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, vegan and vegetarian. Just be cautious when purchasing your hummus. There may be some risk for nut cross-contamination. Also, Sabra does add some soybean oil, but if you need soy-free hummus mashed potatoes, there are other brands that are made exclusively with olive oil, most of which are dairy-free.
