Hummus has become a favorite lunch around here. I've added a few variations in order to sneak a few more veggies into the kids.
We made spinach hummus last week. It turns a wonderful green color ("monstor slime dip"). The kids gobbled it and didn't have a clue there was spinach (a hated veggie!) hiding in there. Garlic flavor does cover over most everything.
This week, we tried roasted beet hummus. Same concept, different veggie. Make your regular hummus recipe but add some roasted beets (or spinach or pumpkin etc.). This was our "Pretty Princess Pink Dip" and again the kids gobbled it up. This is the only way I've ever found to get them to eat beets.
