Hummus is just one of those classic recipes that we should all have on hand for last minute get togethers, sandwich spreads or even an afternoon snack! And until yesterday I was not one ‘those people’ but after realizing how easy this was to make I am never going to stress about what to bring to a party again! Even though Hummus has an awesome nutrition profile: high fiber, protein, vegan/vegetarian friendly and contains omega 3’s!! We still need to be a little mindful of portion size! Roughly (depending on the brand or the ingredients used) hummus has about 100 calories per ¼ cup and while I don’t think calories are the most important part of eating healthy, calories can definitely add up and sabotage your best efforts for losing weight. Whenever we go to Hungry’s restaurant (which is usually 1-2 times per week) I can’t help but order the Hummus appetizer, to lighten up this dish they will bring you extra cucumber sticks and not bring out the pita bread (thankfully) which helps with the indulgent factor! The best things to dip into your hummus are: Cucumbers, carrots, celery, bell peppers, tomatoes and whatever other vegetables available! Now on to that super easy recipe …
After everything had been processed.... oh happy day! I drizzled some extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled some parsley flakes for added flavor and presentation Life is just better when you are eating hummus, don't cha think?!
What is your favorite way to eat hummus?
