To complement these new hummus flavors, Zoës Kitchen is also offering a new Hummus Trio appetizer, which provides guests a sampling of the two new flavors together with Zoës signature classic hummus. These new menu options are now available at all Zoës Kitchen restaurants nationwide.

The Mediterranean Chicken dinner features lean, grilled chicken breast, marinated with Zoës Kitchen “Spice of Life,” lemon juice, and garlic, topped with caramelized onions, and balanced with a side of Greek salad and rosemary white beans. Whether guests are dining in or taking out, this entrée is a flavorful meal for lunch or dinner. 

All of Zoës Kitchen hummus is made-from-scratch in the restaurant daily with only fresh ingredients, including chickpeas, tahini, virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, and spices. The Basil Pesto Hummus is bright, flavorful, and nut-free, infused and topped with a made-from-scratch basil pesto prepared with fresh basil, spinach, chopped garlic, and Parmesan cheese. The Red Pepper Hummus is a zesty version of the classic hummus available at Zoës Kitchen with a variety of additional spices, including paprika, cayenne pepper, and crushed red pepper, mixed with roasted red peppers, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Guests can also choose a Hummus Trio to try a sampling of all hummus varieties including classic hummus, Basil Pesto, and Red Pepper. Zoës Kitchen hummus is served with pita bread, pita chips, or sliced cucumbers for a gluten-free option. All of the new menu items are also available on Zoës Kitchen catering menu.
