Hummus Melts
with broccoli in French vinaigrette

Active: 25 Total: 25

Hummus melts are one of our favorite weeknight vegetarian meals because they are fast and easily customizable. We love the way the savory hummus complements a topping of creamy, melty cheese.
Smarts: For an added dimension, use flavored hummus here instead of plain.

Last time this was a little bland with Swiss and Thyme, so this time we used white cheddar and Italian seasoning which did the trick. Family members from <1, 2, and 4 all thoroughly enjoyed!!

This was so incredibly easy and absolutely delicious. I used a steamer bag for the broccoli to make sure it got soft enough.
