Hummus 101

Lesson 1: Meet Hummus

Hummus. Itʼs a funny word, and a deliciously good dip originally from the Middle East. Hummusʼ star ingredient is the Chickpea. You know the tan, round legumes sometimes referred to as “garbanzos.” They are blended smooth and combined with Tahini, a Mediterranean paste made from ground sesame seeds. When traditionally prepared, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and herbs & spices are added to the mixture. Sounds good, right? Well, Sabraʼs variety of unique flavors mean thereʼs a hummus for everybody. So dig in.

Lesson 2: Hummus Roots

An oldie but goodie, the origins of hummus go back to at least the 13th century. In fact, chickpeas were discovered at around 3000BC, and are thought to be one of the earliest cultivated vegetables. As for sesame seed, another hummus ingredient, itʼs said to be one of the first plant seed to be used for edible oil. Who knew history could be so tasty.

Lesson 3: Smooth. Really Smooth

Sabra Hummus is defined by its smooth texture. Letʼs just say there was a lot of stirring involved.

Lesson 4: Dip, spread & repeat.

Sharing is caring, so give your guests Sabra at your next party. How about serving it with fresh cut vegetables or pita? Or get a little more creative and discover your own combinations. But itʼs so much more than a dip. You can spread hummus on sandwiches in place of mayonnaise or any other condiment or spread. Try adding some to your recipes for an extra kick of flavor.
