It’s time for another Sunday Snack Attack sponsored by Healtheries! The inspiration word for this post was Nibbles, because I get the nibbles all the time, you guys. Because of my work, I am constantly taking little bites of things, which means that I’m never usually hungry at lunchtime.
Come mid-afternoon I get seriously snacky. And that calls for nibbles! Which I try and keep on the healthy end of the scale in order to balance out things like, say these Pecan Brownie Buns, for example.
This is one of my favourite, super easy things to set up as a snack because SPOILER ALERT, I buy my hummus in a tub. Not because it’s hard to make, but because I hate washing up my food processor – #reallife. So I slather my favourite hummus onto a big plate, and then give it a drizzle of good olive oil and a sprinkle of sumac. The sumac is so good; it totally makes this dish.
It’s bright, sharp and citrussy notes are perfect alongside the creamy hummus and crunchy dippers. Carrots, cucumbers, pita chips or these little ‘rice wheels’ from Healtheries are all you need to carry that dippin’ goodness into your mouth. Now excuse me, I have to get my snack on.
We also buy our hummus! Not having a food processor will do that. :) A spread like this is one of my favorite quick snacky meals.
Amen to store bought hummus! Are those Teensy-tiny rice cakes in the photo? Never thought to slather ’em up with hummus.
Looks great – I love sprinkling zataar on top of hummus!! So yummy – you should try it out :)
Looks like the perfect solution to a snack attack. I love buying humus and then jazzing it up with a few little spices. Never tried sumac though. Can’t wait to do it!
This looks amazing. Like the snack I wish I had instead of all the M&Ms. Fun fact, a potato masher does a reeeeally good job with hummus. I’m a broke college student without food processor funds and a deep love for turning canned beans into other thing, so potato masher hummus is a serious thing round here. It may not be quite as smooth, but it tastes the same!
So good to know! I can totally handle washing up a potato masher. And my tub-hummus habit isn’t cheap, that’s for sure. Thanks Lisa!
