Next, we simply need to incorporate all of the savory ingredients into an oven safe bowl or dish. Pile the hummus in with a mountain of plant-based cheese. I Recommend topping the dish with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, paprika, fresh or dried basil and parsley. Alternatively, you can also mix in some red onions, black pepper, spinach or other vegetables. I personally have tried chopped cherry tomatoes and bell peppers hummus to elevate the dish.

comparatively If you choose to make your own hummus, simply blend all the vegan and gluten-free ingredients in a food processor before placing in the oven to bake.
