Hummus Stuffing
Who else is getting excited for Thanksgiving? I love this holiday because it means time spent with family, online Black Friday shopping and of course, all of the food. My family is quite traditional with our Thanksgiving meal and we have eaten mostly the same foods for many years. That's why the idea of a Friendsgiving is really fun. You can make out-of-the-box ideas like this Hummus Stuffing and still enjoy family favorites on the actual Thanksgiving day.

We usually make a big Thanksgiving dinner about twice a year aside from Thanksgiving. I love buying a turkey and cooking it up with a few not completely traditional side dishes. A tray of roasted veggies? Sounds great! Roasted potatoes instead of mashed? Sounds good! Using hummus in stuffing? Let's try it!

I decided to take a twist on traditional stuffing and add in some Sabra hummus. Sabra hummus is loaded with flavor and creaminess and is perfect whisked into this stuffing. It's something that you wouldn't typically think of but turned out delicious. Feel free to use any flavor hummus that you like. Make sure that you whisk the hummus in really well so there are no little pieces left and it will bake right in perfectly.

This dish is amazing for Friendsgiving. A great idea is to have family and friends each bring a dish to make it easier on the host. I would totally bring this dish! Hummus would also be great for a Friendsgiving appetizer. Sabra is focused on bringing your friends together for Friendsgiving. Visit their Pinterest board for recipes, decor, ideas and more.

I also sauteed some fresh mushrooms, onions, apples and celery to add some nutrition and delicious flavors to my stuffing. My dad is known as the stuffing maker in our house and he always adds apples, onions and celery so I started doing the same. The mushrooms are super delicious in there as well!

I found a flavorful garlic French bread for this recipe. Any kind of crusty day old bread would work fine though! Pair this hummus stuffing with my Cajun Turkey and Roasted Vegetables for an out-of-the-box Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving meal. And don't forget the mashed potatoes!
