Hummus is more than a dip: Believe it or not, you can actually cook with it and often sub it in for less healthy ingredients. Here, six ways to use it in your kitchen.

1. Deviled eggs
Use hummus in place of some of the mayo to make deviled eggs creamy

2. Potato salad
Ditto with potato salad: Along with some yogurt, hummus stands in for some of the mayonnaise to make it creamy.

3. Vinaigrette
Blend hummus with white wine vinegar, parsley and a little bit of oil to make a dressing for grain salads.

4. Pizza
Spread pizza dough with hummus instead of tomato sauce to make a delicious, nutty base for other toppings, like arugula or zucchini.

5. Open-faced sandwiches
Spread hummus on sliced bread and top with roasted peppers and tomatoes or sliced shredded carrots.

6. Minestrone
Turn your vegetable soup slightly creamy by mixing in some hummus just before serving.
