Did you know that today is National Hummus Day? Well, to celebrate, the folks over at Sabra asked me to share my favorite appetizer made with hummus. So, here’s a peek at a really yummy way to snack on Sabra…
When I have friends over, I like to serve Sabra with Falafel, a Middle Eastern dish made from spiced mashed chickpeas that are then formed into balls or sticks and deep-fried. Even though Falafel is also made from chickpeas, they are different textures and flavors and they go great together! I like to cut up some fresh peppers for dipping as well. Plus, they add great color to your appetizer. Now you have a nutritious snack that’s delicious too. This appetizer doesn’t last long either. 🙂
The other great thing about this appetizer, is that Flafel can be more filling than crackers so I guess you could call it an “Unofficial Meal”! It makes a good snack to tie you over until dinner when your stomach starts growling, mine usually starts around 3 pm.
I’ve always loved chickpeas and regularly put them on my salad, but when I discovered Sabra Hummus and all the different flavors available, like Jalapeño, Basil Pesto, Lemon Twist, I was delighted. My favorite flavors are the Pine Nut and Roasted Red Pepper. If you’re feeling less adventurous, there’s always the Classic Hummus, made with chickpeas, tahini and a touch of garlic. And Target carries a nice assortment of Sabra flavors so check them out on your next shopping trip.
Right now, I’m snacking on some Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and crackers while I sit outside writing this post. And, of course, the hummus is almost gone. Happy National Hummus Day! Check out Sabra.com for even more ideas!
