i heart hummus

{a note: i wrote this post well over a month ago and it has been waiting to be published for a while! lately i have not been loving hummus for the simple fact that i ate a LOT of it for a LONG time. do not let this fact deter you from going out and buying some!}

lately i’ve been loving hummus. it’s the perfect snack or appetizer and it’s pretty healthy, too! according to wikipedia (the source of all confirmed and legitimate facts on the internet, of course), it is full of iron and vitamin c and can be a complete protein for vegetarians/vegans. main ingredients include mashed chickpeas and tahini (sesame seed paste). i have yet to make any hummus of my own, but i’ve gotten it out at restaurants a couple of times and bought several flavors that are available at the grocery store, including:
  • roasted red pepper (my favorite!)
  • pine nut
  • roasted eggplant
  • spinach & artichoke (least favorite)
  • 40 spices
  • zesty spice & garlic

tribe hummus is a great brand, but i prefer harris teeter’s hummus! i eat my hummus with tortilla chips and brandon eats his with celery stalks.
