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.
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. You can also simply make hummus yourself with my easy recipes such as my Avocado Hummus and Artichoke Hummus!
I came up with this Hummus Brushcetta recipe as an appetizer/snack while dinner was being made and it was perfect. It literally took minutes to make and it really puts a twist on the original brushcetta recipe.
Bruschetta is always a favorite of mine because it is so easy and tasty! I made more bruschetta so we were able to make this later on during the week as well, hinting this makes great leftovers for snacking! 🙂
This quick appetizer or snack is made with only 9 ingredients! I love the combination of the different flavors form the sour dough bread, to creamy hummus and fresh cucumbers and tomatoes on top. It all pairs so perfectly together!
