One of the super foods I like to keep in the house is hummus. My boys (4YO & 2YO) like it too. We enjoy hummus not only on crackers and bread but as a dip with vegetables and apples. Recently we got to try Tribe Hummus. It was a hit! My favorite is the Sweet Roasted Red Pepper; my sons prefer the classic.
I’m just a happy mom that my sons will eat Tribe Hummus! Hummus is made primarily out of chickpeas which are a source for zinc, folate, iron, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus and are high in protein and dietary fiber, which keep you feel fuller longer. Hummus is also made from tahini which is sesame seed butter; sesame seeds contain antioxidants, iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, calcium, and phytosterols. Then there are other spices depending on the variety you purchase.
I especially love Tribe Hummus because of their wide-range choices including an organic line of hummus. Tribe’s newest flavors are Mediterranean Style, Olive Tapenade, Cilantro Chimichurri, and Savory Mushroom. Hummus is also great to cook with, so pick up your favorite variety and try a recipe or two out.
MOMMY TIP: Hummus freezes well. Since Tribe Hummus has no artificial anything it will spoil like normal vegetables and fruits. My tip is to freeze any unused hummus, after initially opening the package, into an ice cube try. Using an ice cube tray allows for perfect portioning, and now your hummus is also on-the-go ready, and is the perfect size for the small bento box compartment of your lunch or snack box.
