How to Freeze Hummus

Save

Hummus, made from cooked, mashed chickpeas and blended with seasonings, is a traditional Middle Eastern food, commonly served as a dip or appetizer with crackers or various types of bread. Hummus is simple to make, as a dip for guests or as a side dish to a meal. Freezing hummus allows you to preserve it for an extended period of time.

  • Scoop the hummus you plan to freeze from its serving dish into an air-tight container that's able to be put into the freezer.

  • Leave an inch from the top of the hummus to the top of the container, since the hummus will expand when it freezes.

  • Close the container and verify that it's air-tight, to maximum its freshness after you remove it from the freezer. Place the container into the freezer.

  • Consume the hummus within a month, to enjoy it at its best taste and texture.

Tips & Warnings

  • Frozen hummus may lose some of its texture and taste, diminishing its original flavor.
