Inspired by Kiwi Kathy's yummy Hummus my sis came up with this rather delicious twist on hummus. Its a great dip for crudites or crackers.

This is a little different what I'm I use. I enjoyed this for lunch served with lentil chips and carrot sticks. The applesauce gave a little sweetness to the hummus. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First make your hummus: Combine chickpeas, applesauce, oil, water, tahini and spices in a tall bowl. Using a hand-held blender whizz into a smooth paste. It may be runnier than normal hummus, but that will change during baking, so just leave it like that (You can also use your food processor for this).
  2. Pour the hummus into a small oven proof dish. Sprinkle with the chopped bell pepper and cheese.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Enjoy! :).
