Hummus Melt
with broccoli in French vinaigrette

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
Hummus melts are fast and easily customizable. We love the way the savory hummus complements a topping of creamy, melty cheese. This meal was first featured in May 2013.
Smarts: For an added dimension, use flavored hummus here instead of plain.

This has become a regular for dinner at our house. Everyone loves the chicken, we mix up the sides depending on what we have on hand.

We really liked this when it was fresh, but the leftovers were quite dry.

Subbed bell pepper, broiled the peppers and broccoli for a bit more crunch before assembly. Added some feta crumbles since we had it in the house. Overall, delicious and very easy.

This was very good. Just watch out for those toothpicks. We served this with just steamed brocolli. Will definitely make this again.
