Loaded Hummus Dip

This Loaded Hummus Dip is creamy, dreamy, thick and flavoursome. It’s layered with ground beef seasoned in Middle-Eastern herbs, along with fresh tomatoes, diced onion, pine nuts, a sprinkle of parsley and a generous drizzle of olive oil.

While I love a classic bowl of hummus, sometimes it can be fun to switch it up, like this Beetroot Hummus, this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, or my latest hummus creation – this Loaded Hummus Dip.

This Loaded Hummus Dip is packed with protein, healthy fats and fibre, so is sufficient as a light meal on it’s own. Try it as a main course alongside a grain like quinoa or Crispy Lentil Rice and a fresh salad, or simply serve alongside some sourdough bread to dip and roasted vegetables on the side.

I strongly recommend using my Easy Hummus recipe as the base for this (which you can prepare a day in advance if you like), but if you’re short on time you could even use shop-bought hummus!

Loaded Hummus Dip


For the Hummus:

For the Seasoned Beef:

  • Olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ green bell pepper, cored and chopped
  • 200g lean ground beef
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • ½ tsp sumac
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup canned tomato sauce
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper

For the Toppings

  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tbsp pine nuts



  • Prepare the homemade hummus and transfer this to a large serving dish, smoothing out the top with the back of a spoon.
  • To make the seasoned ground beef, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large frying pan. Add most of the chopped onions (save 2 tbsp for topping). Add chopped green peppers and minced garlic to the pan and cook on a medium heat for about 4 minutes, stirring regularly.
  • Add lean ground beef and cook for around 8 minutes, until fully browned. Add salt, pepper, allspice, sumac and cinnamon.
  • Add the tomato sauce and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • To assemble the loaded hummus dip, drizzle a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil over the hummus, then top with the seasoned meat, the remaining 2 tbsp of chopped onion, diced tomato, parsley and pine nuts (you can dry-toast these in a frying pan for 2-3 minutes for extra flavour!)
  • Best served immediately but keeps in the fridge for 3 days.
