You can freeze just about any cooked bean dish,
including hummus. The general guidelines are:


1. It is better to omit most (or all) of the seasonings
(salt, garlic, etc), and add these to the reheated (or thawed)
individual batches. Freezing can change/alter flavorings
for the worse, so add them to each batch
after heating (or thawing).

2. Creamy bean dishes like hummus, after thawing,
should be blended in a food processor or blender
before serving. Freezing can alter the texture
of creamy dishes, and blending or whipping will
usually restore the creamy texture.

3. Reheat gently. Overcooking or high-heat cooking
of defrosted bean dishes can give them an unpleasant
texture or taste.
