What to Eat with Sabra Hummus: The #UnofficialMeal
This post is sponsored by my friends at Sabra, to help spread the good word about hummus. This post was written 100% by me.
After I pick up the girls from school, we head home and are all hungry, ready for a substantial snack. And I know I need to act quickly to get a delicious and nutritious snack on the kitchen counter before my daughters dig up a package of soda crackers (Why are kids so obsessed with those, anyway?)
One pre-dinner snack I know that everyone in my family loves is hummus. Which is great because it’s made from chickpeas—a type of legume. And two spoonfuls of hummus add up to the recommended 1 1/2 cups of legumes per week. How easy is that? That’s why I feel good serving my family hummus every night as our unofficial meal before dinner. And Sabra hummus is my family’s favorite. While Sabra tastes amazing straight from the container (our favorite Sabra hummus flavors that I buy every week are Roasted Pine Nut, Lemon Twist and Roasted Garlic), it’s also fun to mix things up by adding your own flavors.

One flavor profile that I’m obsessed with is avocados and chunky salsa, and putting it on top of hummus is no exception. The hummus adds a savory, earthy taste, avocado adds creamy good fats, and salsa adds a pop of acidity with vitamin C, too. Pair with red bell pepper strips, cucumbers, whole-grain tortilla chips or crackers, and you have yourself a fresh little mini meal. Okay, my 2-year-old’s hummus vesicle of choice is a spoon, with the occasional dipping with crackers. But you get the idea. There is something for everyone. And when my husband arrives home from work, he noshes on hummus and celery sticks, while I make dinner as we catch up and chit chat.
Next time you’re super hungry before dinner, reach for some Sabra hummus. The unofficial meal.
