Did you know National Hummus Day is May 13th?! Celebrate the healthful day with these simple and tasty Hummus Bruschetta Bites! Not only is hummus an extremely popular snack these days, it also has quite a few health benefits as well. It is high in protein and has a surprisingly great amount of vitamins and minerals. Hummus is higher in fat but it is loaded with fats that are heart healthy.
“I received free samples of Sabra Hummus mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the con-
test. I was not compensated for my time.”
Although hummus is easy to make, I always enjoy Sabra Hummus when I buy hummus from the grocery store! They have so many delicious flavors to select from including: Classic, Lemon Twist, Supremely Spicy, Basil Pesto, Roasted Red Pepper, Jalapeno, Spinach and Artichoke, Olive Tapenade, Roasted Pine Nut, Chipotle, Sun Dried Tomato, & Tuscan Herb. I decided to use the Classic flavor in my recipe because I already added extra seasonings in the bruschetta but if you want to add a bit more flavor I would use either the Roasted Garlic, Supremely Spicy, Tuscan Herb, or Red Bell Pepper flavor.
Celebrate National Hummus Day on May 13th with this tasty & healthful snack!
Sour dough baguette; sliced
4 small roma tomatoes; diced
3 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 cucumber; thinly sliced and cut in half
Sabra® Classic Hummus
- In a medium bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, dried basil and garlic together until coated well.
- Spread about 1 teaspoon of Sabra® Original Hummus on each sour dough slice. Place 2 cucumber slices on the slice and then top with a spoonful of the tomato mixture. Make as many as you desire. These make the perfect appetizer or snack!
I was so excited when I received these samples! Hummus is one of my favorite snacks and it was fun to think of other ways to incorporate this ingredient rather than just using it as a simple dip. Hummus has evolved over the years and now it seems to be one of the most popular dips for snacking.
I made this for our appetizer while dinner was being made and it was perfect. I try to stay away from buying bread but making bruschetta is always an exception. I made more bruschetta so we were able to make this later on during the week as well–this makes great leftovers for snacking! I hope you enjoy this appetizer as much as we did!
