I am always looking for a way to get the most out of my time spent in meal prep. If I can prep one item and meet two needs, it is a real time saver!
I came up with the idea for this recipe in an effort to give my hummus an extra “boost” of protein. That way, I could avoid having to prep an additional protein source for my meal. While I don’t meticulously track calories, I keep a fairly good account of my intake with the LoseIt! application. This has really helped me to make sure I am meeting my macros for gaining lean muscle (one of my main fitness goals).
You can use your favorite hummus for this recipe. I usually make my own, but was running short on time and used pre-made.
I love that the addition of the egg whites and cottage cheese resulted in a less dense and almost whipped-style final product!

Feeling really experimental? Try this: cook 2 eggs over-easy, then top with some diced tomatoes, this hummus, a couple crumbled sausage links (turkey/chicken/veggie sausage of preference) and a TBSP or two of nutritional yeast! I know it sounds odd, but if you are a fan of runny yolks, it is pheNOMenal!!
