Recipe type: Side
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 servings
  • 5 cups yellow potatoes (about 6 potatoes), peeled and cut into 1½ inch cubes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, plus additional to taste, divided
  • 1⅓ cup hummus (such as Sabra Classic Hummus)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges (optional)
  1. Place the potato cubes in a medium-sized pot and cover them with water. Add the ¼ teaspoon salt. Bring the water to a boil and simmer over medium heat for about 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender.
  2. Drain the potatoes and put them back in the pot over medium heat until the moisture comes out of the potatoes and they appear dry, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  3. In the same pot, start mashing the potatoes with a potato masher. Add the hummus, oil, and salt and pepper, to taste. Mash until it reaches your desired consistency.
  4. Serve topped with fresh parsley, and garnish with lemon wedges to squeeze over top, if desired.
