It’s been a real surprise to see classic Israeli and Middle Eastern food take center stage in America’s supermarkets. Packaged hummus used to be thick, grainy and not at all like the hummus I fell in love with in Israel. All that changed a few years ago when Sabra hummus came to market. They introduced Israeli style Hummus and made it mainstream in the regular grocery stores. Then hummus shops opened up all over New York City and random places around the country. Remarkable.
Hummus has gone beyond the kosher, Jewish and Israeli market to broader mainstream appeal and with good reason. Hummus is made of chickpeas, sesame paste, lemon, garlic and olive oil. It is a healthy, protein filled, snack or lunch that is gluten free and nut free. It doesn’t spoil easily and is delicious spread on crackers, pita, carrot sticks or even a bagel. For those counting, 2 tablespoons contains 50 calories, 3.5 g of fat, 4 g of carbohydrates, 1 g of fiber and 2 g of protein.
You can find hummus all across America now and Tribe Hummus has taken it to the next level. Tribe Hummus makes their authentic creamy blend without any additives or preservatives. They use the natural lemon juice to work its magic to keep their product fresh. Tribe has three lines, Original Blended, Tribe with Toppings and Tribe Organic. Some of their newer flavors include Spicy Chipotle, Kalamata Olive, Cilantro Chimichurri and Jalapeno, and I am working my way through them all! Try Jamie’s Mediterranean Pizza with Hummus and Feta or try subbing hummus instead of mayo in spinach and artichoke dip. Or you can just spoon it right out of the container like I do!
