Dish Pairing Ideas for Hummus and Pita Bread Recipe

Grilled Vegetables

Grill a mixture of zucchini, bell peppers, eggplant, and mushrooms. The smoky flavor of the grilled vegetables pairs beautifully with the creamy hummus.

Tabbouleh Salad

This refreshing salad (Tabbouleh Salad) with bulgur wheat, fresh parsley, mint, tomatoes, and cucumber, dressed in lemon juice and olive oil, offers a bright contrast to the rich hummus.


These crispy chickpea balls are a classic Middle Eastern food that combines hummus and pita. Serve with a drizzle of tahini sauce.

​Pickled Vegetables

The acidity and crunch of pickled vegetables like cucumbers, carrots, or beets can be a great palate cleanser between bites of hummus and pita.

Chicken or Lamb Shawarma

The spiced, grilled meat can be served alongside or inside the pita with hummus for a hearty meal.

Greek Salad

A Greek salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, feta cheese, and a light dressing can be a refreshing side to the creamy hummus.

Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Another dip, like roasted red pepper or baba ganoush, can offer a variety of flavors when served with hummus.


Grilled meat or veggie kebabs offer a unique texture and smoky flavor, an excellent complement to the soft pita and creamy hummus.
