LOADED HUMMUS PITAS
DO I HAVE TO USE PITA BREAD?
You don’t have to use pita. Naan is a fantastic substitute. Any solid slice of bread you have at hand can be used. This is a great recipe to use the last tortillas you’ve left on the side of your fridge for the past three weeks. (Is it the case for everyone else?) The most important thing is choosing bread you do not need to toast. However, if you want to toast the bread you’ve bought, do it. It is possible to warm the pita (or tortillas or naan) on the stove or a dry skillet at medium-low temperature or in a 350-degree preheated oven.
DO I HAVE TO USE HUMMUS?
For the most convenience, go for the soft hummus you can Hummusom the store. If it’s not in your budget, create your own. I’ve got some fantastic Hummus recipes that will take five minutes to prepare. For those who aren’t hummus lovers, try Greek yogurt or avocado mashed.
WHAT ELSE CAN I ADD TO THE LOADED HUMMUS PITAS?
