Sabra® Hummus Bruschetta Bites

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.

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!

Cucumber, Lemon, & Mint detox water

image
The last few detox waters I made have been a MAJOR hit! I have received tons of great feedback from them all so I am always in the makings of more delicious and refreshing waters. After all, water is the most important drink so why not make it extra delicious!? 😉

All you need is:
About 5 cucumber slices
3 lemon slices
About 4-6 mint leafs

Place ingredients in a mason jar and add water to the top. Let sit over night so the water can absorb all of the nutrients. I highly recommend making a large batch of this because you are going to want more…the best part about it is, the more you drink the best it is for you!
