Brown Butter Sage Hummus & And The Web’s Top Ten Hummus Recipes

There seems to be something so paltry and vapid about trying to talk about hummus when half of the United States is bracing for an epic natural disaster.

Because it seems to be only in those times when the brushes with disaster get top billing in our lives that we take the time to be thankful, today seems to be the prefect hour. Take a moment to relax the expectations you had for today, step back and be grateful and thankful for what you do have. And send thoughts, prayers and love to those on the East Coast who could possibly lose today what you forgot to be be thankful for yesterday.

Brown Butter Sage Hummus


  • 4 tbs butter
  • 3 sage leaves, minced
  • 3 tbs tahini
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 15 oz Chickpeas
  • 3 tbs olive oil (plus additional as needed)


  1. Add the butter to a pot over medium heat. Stir continuously until it has turned an amber brown color and has a nutty aroma. Remove from heat. Add the sage and stir.
  2. In a food processor, add the remaining ingredients along with the browned butter.
  3. Process until smooth. Add additional olive oil for a smoother texture.

You are so right about this – my thoughts and prayers are being sent to the east coast as I type this. I definitely want some of this hummus though, too! (Thanks for the link love!)

Agreed, but I do love the idea of brown butter in hummus. I’m pretty sure we need to be neighbors already. Thanks for the link!


Jackie October 29, 2012 um 12:01 pm

I wish! But I’m pretty sure we would gain about 10 pounds a week by forcing each other to eat our creations 🙂

Must be the season: I posted about Butetrnut Hummus this week:) These look delicious, there’s something so comforting in dipping in a bowl of hummus.
Strange to experience the storm from Europe, far away but thinking about the other side!

I love putting hummus on sandwiches and using it as dressing on salad, I could seriously eat it every day. I have to check out your hummus recipe, sounds great!

Hummus is so good and so easy – and love all the varieties and versions. I predict beer, next 🙂

I have one on the other blog. Loved it! With jalapenos.

Wow so much hummusness going on, I actually had some for lunch today and had to really pull away from the container. Love it..

This looks fantastic, and what a great round-up!

Thanks for linking to my edamame hummus! I can never get chickpea hummus to turn out right, but maybe all I need is a little brown butter…


Jackie October 30, 2012 um 11:48 am

People keep telling me to remove the skins from the chickpeas, but I’m too lazy. Maybe I’ll give it a try next time.


Jessica@AKitchenAddiction October 30, 2012 um 8:20 am

What a good reminder to stop and remember to be thankful for the things that we are blessed with on a daily basis!
Love the idea of using brown butter in hummus! It will make me more addicted to hummus than I already am! 🙂


Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet October 30, 2012 um 8:47 am

Such a good message. I keep thinking of our family in Virginia and hope it won’t be as bad as they predict…. Love the brown butter and sage hummus. It can be addicting 🙂


Jackie October 30, 2012 um 11:47 am

Love and hugs to your family in Virginia! Hope it passes without too much damage.


Bree October 30, 2012 um 9:44 am

I would agree to that, but hummus is a simple thing. Sometimes we all need simple in the face of disaster…This one looks good!

Great post, Jackie! I have never been so grateful for not having to worry about the power going out! I can’t imagine what everyone else is going through over on the east coast. Now this hummus looks amazing! And awesome round-up – I’ll have to hit each one up soon!


Jackie October 30, 2012 um 11:46 am
