My guys are meatball fanatics so I look for different ways to give them the flavor they love. While marinara may be the usual meatball pairing, I love the combination of meatballs and HOPE Hummus. My guys were skeptical at first, but now they are huge fans of the combination too!
I have all kinds of ways that I pair hummus and meatballs. I have done amazing flatbreads, calzones, appetizers, salads and more. One of our favorite recipes is that Meatball Stuffed Pita Pocket you see above. It’s a fantastic option for lunch or dinner and is totally open to customization.
In fact, I’ll often put everything out as a make-you-own pita bar. I like to include a couple of varieties of HOPE Hummus, cooked meatballs, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, cheeses, olives, cucumbers… whatever I have handy in my fridge and pantry.
And when it comes to building my pita pocket, I like to spread a good helping of HOPE Hummus into the pita and then stuff in lots of goodies. I’ll then mix a little more hummus with some olive oil to thin it out a bit so that I can drizzle a little extra on top. That way I get that tasty hummus in every single bite.
This is the perfect meal when you don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. You can make homemade meatballs or even heat frozen meatballs and then there’s no need to cook at all. On a busy weeknight, this meal will be such a timesaver!
