Hummus Stuffed Dates

Dates stuffed with hummus – you think it is weird? I don’t know about you, but I just love it – it is nutty and sweet! Unique and very easy to prepare.

It is unbelievable how time flies so fast. I was just thinking of what meals to prepare for Ramadan and now, I am sharing you something for Eid Eats.ย Eid Eats is an Eid party hosted by the wonderful Henna @ My Ninja Naan and Asiya @ Chocolate and Chillies. It is a yearly party where Muslim bloggers gather together to share something for Eid – whatever they want to serve for their loved ones. It maybe a traditional recipe or not.

I don’t know much the recipes my Mom used to serve for us – I was just happy helping with the chopping and of course, eating. ๐Ÿ˜€ So for this year’s party, I am taking a different direction and I am sharing something I’d like my family to have – Hummus Stuffed Dates. Yes? No?

I have just accidental discovered this one when I was breaking my fast and I had dates and hummus in front of me. I ate a piece of date and while chewing, I also took a spoonful of hummus. And I was like “Oh! That was good!” I finally stuffed the date with hummus and ate again, just to make sure I was not out of my mind. It was indeed really good! So here I am sharing these lovely stuffed dates.

The dates are simply stuffed with hummus – you can use store-bought or homemade. (I have this smooth hummus if you’d like to check it out.) I cheated here and I used the boxed hummus my boss gave me. The taste was like nutty and sweet – it was amazing! This is best during the same day they are stuffed. I suggest that you stuff only what you want to serve and keep pitted dates ready for stuffing later on.

To all those who are observing Ramadan, I pray that you had a healthy one and advance Eid Mubarak!

I am also sharing these at this week’s Fiesta Friday #177 where me and Ai @ Ai Made It For You are co-hosting. Thank you, Angie, for this wonderful party!

  1. I love the way you discovered such an unusual combination! I would have to try it to check but dates and nuts go well together and chickpeas are a little nutty so it could be really good. They definitely look pretty and thank you so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice!

    1. My friends think my unusual combination is always weird like when I discovered fried chicken and strawberry jam in a sandwich! ๐Ÿ˜€ And this one, too. I am glad that you find it interesting, Corina. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Jhuls! I did see this on Instagram and saved it too. A Very novel idea and so contradicting to your blog title! LOL! Not so Creative eh? modesty! ๐Ÿ˜€ I am glad I found this blog through the event…

    1. Well, maybe I am not creative in some ways especially in molding very lovely pies or decorating๐Ÿ˜‚ Thanks a lot for your compliment and for believing in me!

  3. This is such an interesting combination! I’ve seen dates stuffed with Tahini, so this isn’t that far out ๐Ÿ˜‰ It looks and sounds delicious! I bet the creamy texture of the Hummus goes sooo well with the dates!
    Thank you so much for participating in Eid Eats again this year, and Happy Eid to you and your family from me and mine ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Shukran, Henna. It was really nice and lovely combo! I have to say I am happy that you liked these! Advance Eid Mubarak to you and your family as well!๐Ÿ˜˜

  4. This is such a genius idea Jhuls! I’ve just cooked some chickpeas and I’ve even got dates in my cupboard so I’m going to make this! Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare:)

  5. I was stuffing dates with a mix of nuts butters this week, so I can see how this would work. I find dates too sweet on their own, but I’m guessing the homous would temper the sweetness? I’ll have to try it ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ xx

    1. Yes, exactly! I also find the dates too sweet especially when they are ripe. The hummus made everything perfect! I hope you’d love it. ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Haha! It’s okay, Liz. My cousin said the same thing. I am not even sure if anyone would agree with me on this idea!๐Ÿ˜‚ Thanks for stopping by!
