Roasted Garlic Hummus Scones


When Roots told me they would be sending me a sample of their hummus in exchange for a review, I expected a small sampling of a couple of their hummus, in no way did I expect this swag bag…


Which, in addition to the t-shirt, tank top, hat, cooler, several coupons, stickers and magnets, also contained 9 – yes, I said 9 – of some of the most flavorful and freshest hummus I have had (and nope – Roots did not pay me to say that)!

Being the food lover and equality-in-tasting advocate I am, I had to taste them ALL and they blew me away, specially the Hot Chipotle Hummus and the Thai Coconut Curry Hummus. Roots says they use over 70% organic ingredients and it shows – this hummus was fresher than homemade!

Since my daughter had been asking me for some savory scones for breakfast, I figured I would incorporate some of Roots Roasted Garlic Hummus into a scone.


When I went into a bakery this weekend, I was delighted and shocked; delighted to find nutritional info on all the bakery items (I don’t eat out much so this was my first time running into this), and shocked to see that scones fared pretty badly on the nutritional scale.

These scones, however, are not the scones at the bakery – I left out the butter, and substituted white flour with whole grain brown rice flour and added a hefty helping of Roots hummus to churn out these delectable and healthy, “yes-you-may-have-another-and-another”, pillows of bliss!

I have 5 coupons for a FREE Roots Hummus container and I feel every one (or at least 5 of yall) should let your taste buds be carried away (Roots is to taste buds what Calgon is to baths) – so, I will mail 5 of yall a coupon for a container of Roots hummus, if you would be so kind as to leave me a comment as to what non traditional way you plan on eating-or have eaten hummus. The quirkiest five will be the recipients of said coupons. This isn’t a sponsored giveaway – just a self hosted “spread the taste” giveaway. Roots can be found at Whole Foods, Ingles, Earth Fare and other specialty stores.

    I’m not sure what happened – but I don’t think my comment ever posted. Let’s try this again.

    “Yay! I just so happen to have all the ingredients, well except for the brown rice flour. Do you think I could sub w/ a different kind?

    I’d top a savory waffle w/ the roasted red bell pepper hummus :)”

      Thanks Jessie – yes,you most definitely can sub with another flour! Rice flour or whole wheat – jut lower the baking powder if you use self raising though.
      A waffle with hummus sounds BRILLIANT!

  2. says

    Yum I love that you are on such a scones kick right now! These ones look and sound absolutely delicious. I’ve not used brown rice flour before but yours is the second recipe tonight I’ve seen using it so I am definitely intrigued!

    • says

      Thanks Jan – its actually not very different to white rice flour – at least I didn’t notice it – but it might have been the hummus that made the scone :)

        You can find Roots at the Whole Foods Market in Duluth/John’s Creek and all other Whole Foods Markets in GA, NC, SC, TN, AL, MS and Southern CA. If you have an independent natural foods store close by you can ask them to order Roots through UNFI or Albert’s distributors.

    Oh goodness… now that looks like a delicious amount of hummus :D And I love that you used it for baking! I’ve made crepes with hummus before, but I’d love to branch out into things like muffins or… cookies? :shock: Sounds crazy, but it just might work.

    Hope your week is off to a wonderful start, Shashi <3

    Wow, I love hummus and that’s an awesome batch they sent you Shashi:) These scones are such a creative idea, I would never think to use hummus for baking but they sound fantastic in these savory scones :)

    A very awesome and a creative recipe. I don’t know if you people have a PhD in cooking, if not then please apply for one because you people are truly deserving guys. This recipe is really very good. I am now obsessed with doing it, I have already ordered all the ingredients from and will be doing it very soon. Thanks for the recipe again.

    YOU AIN’T PLAYING AROUND WITH THIS RECIPE!!! At first glance, I wanted to throw them at people… Just cause I like to play with food, but then I thought, OH HECK NO – no wasting deliciousness ALLOWED!!!

    • says

      Hahaha – Thanks GiGi! Have you heard of this restaurant called Lamberts in St Louis? Well, they are touted as the “home of the throwed roll” when you want a roll you raise your hand and one of the roll-boys will throw one right into your hand! Guess they could throw these scones too!

  7. says

    Wow! You are in hummus heaven. I never thought about scones being savory but these sound and look delicious. I love garlic and hummus so I’ll definitely be giving this recipe a try.

  8. says

    Oh my God, hummus heaven indeed, to quote the commenter above me. That’s crazy – I’d be so pleased to get that through my door! Great idea to make scones with hummus… I’d have never thought of that. Bet the flavour was amazing!


I would love to hear from ya!
