Can hummus be frozen?

Picked up 2-for-1 Sabra today but that's a lot to go through before the exp date.

I just made a batch tonight - takes exactly 5 minutes (probably less) - so easy and so good!

5. Interesting.

When I made some at home and froze it, it came out of the freezer even after defrosting in the fridge drier and with the consistency of fudge and no matter what I did to it, it would not regain the original texture. I added water and reblended but the texture stayed the same and it became particulate (like hummus "peas") in liquid.

Ideas?

4. Well, those freeze well, too.

Just be sure to make an extra big batch of potato salad to go with the fried hummingbird, or your guests will probably go home hungry.

6. Not in OUR house! It never stays around for very long - same with fresh salsa.

 

As for whether or not you CAN freeze it, that's something I've never even contemplated but a quick search seems to indicate that it freezes quite well.

7. make sammiches with it

Great on whole grain bread lined with lettuce, big slice of tomato, sprinkling of herbs. Must stop. Making myself hungry.

With that, you'll use up a lot.

Another option: have a cocktail hour with a friend and serve some up with vegetables.
