How many of you are snackers or have kids who are looking for something to eat while your making dinner? I’m a total snacker when I’m making dinner and I can remember as a kid standing in the kitchen bugging my mom for something to eat while she was making dinner too. The problem with my snacking is I’m eating all the ingredients that are supposed to be in the meal, which means my poor husband is left with a dinner that only has half the amount of stuff in it that there should be. Another problem is that when dinner finally does get on the table, I’m not even that hungry because I’ve basically already eaten mine while making it. One solution to this problem is to keep a dedicated pre-dinner snack on the counter while I’m cooking so I don’t end up eating all the ingredients and my dinner before it’s even served.
Hummus is a great snack to have on hand before a meal because it’s full of protein, filling and one you can feel good about eating. Since I love Greek food as you may have been noticing, I decided to make Hummus with Greek Toppings. Occasionally I’ll make my own hummus, but sometimes I like to skip that whole process and just jazz up a container from the grocery store. Pre-dinner snacks should be easy and not require much work. Two of my favorite hummus flavors to use when adding Greek toppings are, Sabra’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and their Original Hummus.
Both of these flavors are the perfect vehicle for my Greek toppings which include cucumbers, roasted red peppers, Kalamata olives and my favorite feta cheese! These toppings are ones I often have on hand and use in salads I make, so it’s no big deal to just chop up a little extra and throw it on top of the hummus.
