Thanksgiving Stuffing Topped Hummus

Sharing is caring!

This Thanksgiving stuffing topped hummus takes all the flavors of a traditional stuffing and places it right on top of flavorful hummus. If a side dish and an appetizer had a baby this would be it! So easy to make and full of flavor your whole family will love it!

Ok, I know I’ve been giving you a lot of hummus posts recently BUT it’s such an easy addition to your Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving!) table that I can’t help but show you the millions of ways it can be used.

I mean, who would have thought a simple tub of hummus could be transformed into a full-blown vegan meal (broccoli rabe and hummus topped sweet potatoes), a vinaigrette (lemon and herb hummus vinaigrette), and easy appetizers (easy pumpkin hummus). 

Plus, if you’re like me you always have leftover hummus so these recipes are great for using up leftovers. 

And if you’re like me you know the best part about stuffing is the sausage so basically I just took all the best parts of stuffing and turned it into a hot dip served with crusty bread to scoop it all up.

Heck to the yeah!

Perfect for Friendsgiving!

While I do recommend serving this dip warm it doesn’t take a lot of time to come together so it’s still a great option for parties.

You can put your friends to work by spreading out the hummus and chopping up all the vegetables. Then all you need to do is give it a quick cook so the sausage is done and place it over the hummus.

I had this totally completed (with chopping!) in 25 minutes. 

Since I know my friends pretty well I know I have to make this for Friendsgiving.

They are all huge meat-eaters (with the exception of 2 friends who are plant-based) so meat on top of hummus will make their dreams come true. 

But, if you’re looking for an inclusive idea for all eaters you can find some pretty delicious vegan sausages that will work wonderfully.

You could even spice up some faux meat crumbles if you can’t find vegan sausage.
