Did you know National Hummus Day is this coming Saturday? While you’ll almost always find a tub of hummus in my fridge (24/7/365), I figured this is a day to celebrate my love of hummus a little harder than usual. I took the opportunity to not only celebrate hummus, but some of my favorite seasonal ingredients (and a few fun goodies), as well.
With a spread like this Spring Snack Platter with Hummus Phyllo Bites, you have an Unofficial Meal. Which works perfectly, since we’re celebrating on a Saturday, and I like to keep mealtimes pretty flexible on the weekend, depending on what I’m doing. So, having a fresh, satisfying unofficial meal filled with mostly plant-based nutrition is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up.
Obviously, hummus is going to be the star of the show here. I spooned some dollops of Sabra Classic Hummus into pre-made phyllo cups (find those in the freezer aisle) and topped them with cute little microgreens (parsley would work well, too). Then, I added a bowl of hummus and crackers to my platter for even more hummus goodness.
After that, I rounded out my platter with lots of fresh and dried fruits, some blanched seasonal veggies, nuts, local honey, fun finds from the olive bar at the store, fig preserves, tiny little balls of mozzarella, and yes, even some mini muffins because they jumped into my grocery cart. Whoops!
Celebrate National Hummus Day with Sabra even further with my Buffalo Falafel Subs or Chicken Shawarma Seven Layer Dip! And, be sure to connect with Sabra on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
