Welcome to Day 10 of my 10 Days of Easy Hacks and Recipes! We’re at the home stretch!! Throughout this series, we’ve explored various recipes that come together in no time at all, as well as easy hacks in the kitchen that you can implement for quick snacks and meals.

Today, we’re concluding this journey with a hack that’s bound to revolutionize your experience with store-bought hummus. In this recipe, I’m not teaching you how to make hummus. To me, that’s too much work and I just want quick and convenience. However, I do want to show you how to ELEVATE store-bought hummus in just 5-10 minutes but have it be outstanding enough to serve at a classy dinner party.

What’s so good about hummus?
  • Hummus is a creamy dip or spread usually made from blended chickpeas, tahini (sesame paste), lemon juice, and garlic!
  • It’s a staple in Middle Eastern cuisine, rich in plant-based protein and healthy fats
  • Hummus comes in various flavours, including classic, roasted red pepper, sun-dried tomato, and more
  • This versatile dip can be enjoyed with pita bread, crackers, fresh vegetables, or even as a sandwich spread
  • Hummus is an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making it a nutritious addition to your diet
  • Its creamy texture and mild flavour provide a wonderful canvas for various toppings and enhancements, as showcased in this hack!

Cuisine Ethiopian
Servings 2

  • 1 burger meat patty I used one impossible foods meat patty (vegan) but you can use regular beef or pork
  • 1/4 cup onions, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1.5 tsp cumin
  • 1.5 tsp paprika
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 0.5 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 container store bought hummus (250g)
  • 1.5 tsp chopped fresh parsley (as garnish)
  • 1 tbsp high-quality extra virgin olive oil


  • In a skillet over medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil.Add finely chopped onions and sauté until they turn translucent.Toss in minced garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • Add your choice of ground meat or plant-based patty to the skillet. Break it up and let it cook until browned.
  • Sprinkle in cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper according to your taste preference. These spices will infuse the meat and add a bit of heat!
  • On a serving plate, spread a generous layer of your favorite store-bought hummus. You can choose classic, roasted red pepper, or any other flavour you love.
  • Top the hummus with the spiced meat mixture and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
  • Drizzle on your EVOO!
  • Grab some pita bread, pita chips, tortilla chips, or fresh vegetable sticks and enjoy!


The pan I'm using is the Our Place Always Pan 2.0! It is a 10-in-1 piece of cookware that I use every day. This 2.0 version is also ACTUALLY non-stick so it's a HUGE improvement from the 1.0! I highly recommend it. ??
