This week, instead of a recipe, we will feature our new dessert hummus! We at the Coop are very excited about being the first and only store in Anacortes to have it! There are so many ways to use this great product in ways you may not have thought of, and it may inspire those who are skeptical to give it a try. Dessert hummus is exactly what it sounds like, hummus that has a sweet flavor profile as opposed to a savory one. In the savory realm, hummus takes on many flavors such as garlic, lemon, chilies, and red pepper among many others. Delighted by Hummus has created a unique twist on a popular product with flavors like brownie batter, snickerdoodle, vanilla bean, and choco-mint. The suggestions here are by no means the limit when it comes to uses, but simply meant to get you started. Here are a few suggestions to add a whole new dimension to your dessert menu:
Spoon Bow Hill Pickled Blueberries on Vanilla Bean dessert hummus, use as a dip for bread
Use Snickerdoodle dessert hummus as a frosting for cookies or pastries
Brownie Batter flavor as a base for a smoothie or as frosting for banana bread or muffins
Choco-mint flavor as frosting for brownies or chocolate cupcakes
Use any of the flavors as a foundation for a dessert platter with chocolate pieces, bread, and fresh fruit
We have bread from Essential baking and 5b’s, both of which would be great to dip into this hummus. We have all of essentials you need to make your own bread if you prefer, along with items you need for muffins, cookies, and other baked goods, and beautiful fresh fruit every week. You could even try grilling or roasting the fruit to add flavor. the possibilities are endless. We are very excited about this new product and we hope you are too!
