07 Mar 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.
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.
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.
