Win Tribe Hummus!

Win Tribe Hummus!

Coming from a Middle Eastern household, I grew up on hummus— for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner! I’ve just discovered the new flavored hummus on the market—and now stock them in my fridge. Check out these creative ways I eat the stuff and enter to win Tribe hummus.

Nutrition Lowdown
Hummus is a Middle Eastern spread made from chickpeas (A.K.A. garbanzo beans), tahini (sesame seed paste), olive oil, lemon, and spices. Flavors like garlic, roasted red pepper, horseradish and jalapeno are now available.

Two tablespoons of classic hummus has 60 calories, 5 grams fat, and 2 grams of protein. It also has iron, vitamin C and fiber and is free of both saturated fat and cholesterol. As with any food, portion control is always important. Two tablespoons are perfect to use as a sandwich spread and ¼ cup can be used for a meal (like in a hummus and veggie sandwich) or as a dip.

Creative Ideas
If you think hummus is just for dipping veggies, think again!  Here are some fun ways to enjoy it:

  • Add 2 tablespoons of hummus to a turkey wrap.
  • Use to dip pita chips.
  • Stir a spoonful into pasta dishes.
  • Fill a whole wheat pita with 2 tablespoons hummus, scrambled eggs and sliced tomato.
  • Use in place on mayo and ketchup on your burgers
  • Top salads with a dollop of hummus.

    I love to eat hummus on toast with a slice of cheese and slice of tomato. Yum!

    I have never tried this brand because it’s not carries in the grocery store we shop most often but I looked to see where they carry it and there is another local grocery store where I can find it.

    My favorite way to eat hummus is with fresh red peppers. There is nothing better then dipping a crisp red pepper into some smooth hummus. Yum!

    As a member of the tribe, I HAVE to love hummus 🙂 It’s best when on chicken shawarma or simply eaten with pita.

    I love enjoying hummus with pita chips but I especially enjoy it with vegetable slices– carrots, red peppers and snap peas are some of my favorite dippers. Haven’t tried it, but I’m sure jicama would be great with it too!

    I mix it in with tuna in place of mayo or in veggie soup to thicken it up a bit. YUM!

    I love the jalapeno hummus! It’s a staple I buy every time I grocery shop. My favorite way to eat it is with pita chips, but usually go the healthier route of using it as a veggie dip or spread on a wrap.

    I first tried hummus three years ago when I was on my way to the Sacramento river in California. I needed a healthy snack that I could take on the kayak with me. Then I found three peppers hummus with stone ground tortilla chips,,,,,i was hooked!! I couldn’t get enough I even gave my kids some and they loved it. Now I can’t find it for less than 5$ and that’s a little too much did a small container, I just can’t bring myself to pay that much so since I’m in the dessert and not going to kayak anytime soon, I’m just gona stick with my home made salsa.
