As many of you know, I’m a hummus lover. Like hummus addict. That’s a good thing, in my opinion. In fact, I’ve been known to make a whole meal out of hummus. Really, check out my IG post from last week and you”ll totally see why! Don’t worry, I’ll share my reasoning here as well. Hummus is one of those vegetarian/gluten free appetizers that’s just so good, so filling (fiber and plant based protein to boot!), it’ so good for you (rich in non heme iron), that it actually becomes an unofficial meal. Yes, a satisfying SNACKAGE Meal! But wait, I’m not just talking about a plain ol’ jane hummus and crackers. Nope. I’m talking about this. VEGGIE LOADED Warm Mediterranean Spinach Artichoke HUMMUS DIP! This, my friends, is a meatless unofficial meal you can enjoy ANY TIME of day.
Okay, so what exactly is an unofficial meal?
A unofficial Meal is a wholesome everyday snack or appetizer that just fills you up and give you energy, just like a healthy meal. It can occur any time! Afternoon, post dinner, heck, an unofficial meal can occur anytime you need that energy boost! Or, if you are like me, you make this Warm Hummus Dip a meal when you need to throw together a meal on minimal ingredients. That happens a lot in our house. Haha, whoops!
Anyway, back to Hummus obsession and making the most out of snack time. No “formal meal” rules here ya’ll. It’s a come as you are and enjoy type of snack sharing recipe and I have Sabra to thank for that! Sabra hummus. Fresh, satisfying, Sabra Hummus. If you don’t know this brand, you’ve been living under a rock. I’m kidding. Kinda. But in all honesty, adding Sabra Hummus to this Warm Mediterranean Spinach Artichoke Hummus Dip is the KEY nutritional ingredient to this whole Unofficial Meal
