There was a time when I didn’t even know what hummus was. True story! I had no clue. Then I studied abroad in London in 2004 and my beautiful Russian/Jewish roommate introduced me to it. I remember being a little afraid to try it because it looked so… paste-like. But I did and I fell in love and I’ve never looked back!
The hummus I bought regularly at my London grocery store is only a memory now and I struggle finding really good hummus at grocery stores in the States. When I lived in Chicago I bought my hummus from the Pita Inn Market which specialized in amazing Mediterranean food and also had a restaurant next door. In my current city it is either Sabra (the best grocery store brand I’ve found) or making it myself. It’s honestly better if I make it but I’m kind of lazy. Unfortunately this means that Sabra often wins out.
Why all the hummus talk? It is a key ingredient in my latest, favorite healthy snack! I bought a big bag of these small, fresh yellow, orange, and red peppers last weekend and about every other night I’ve been cutting up a bunch of them and having them with a serving of hummus. This, friends, is what is saving me from the potato chips this week!
Pretty & colorful, right?
