The Perfect Playdate Veggie Tray Includes Tribe Hummus
As the President of my local MOMS Club (which is how I met Louise), I like to attend or host as many events as possible. Most of these are playgroups at people’s houses, and it’s customary to bring a dish or snack to share. And then we all stand around and chat and munch while the kids play.
I have recently become OBSESSED with hummus. Every playgroup I attend, I bring a veggie tray and a tub of hummus. I can’t stop eating it! I do have a tendency to get stuck in a rut with it, and just buy the same brand and flavor every time.
I got to try out 3 different varieties of Tribe All-Natural Hummus, and I got them for an evening that I was hosting a MOMS Club evening event at my house. I opted for the Roasted Garlic, the Spicy Red Pepper, and the Mediterranean Style.
I set out some broccoli, carrots, celery, and cucumbers to try them with, and we also used some tortilla chips and pita chips that someone else brought. They were all VERY yummy. I think the roasted garlic was the favorite, of the three, but the Mediterranean Style was a close second. Apparently we are all spice wimps, because the Spicy Red Pepper, although good, was a little on the hot side, it seemed, and that one had the most left in it at the end of the night.
Just now, I went and looked at Tribe’s website, and saw that they have 16 varieties of their all-natural hummus. Just a few that I’m dying to try are the Cilantro Chimichurri, the Spicy Chipotle, and (oh goodness!) the Kalamata Olive. I go weak in the knees for Kalamata Olives, and obviously, the store I was shopping at didn’t have any of this or it would have been the first to go in my basket.
Maybe I will have to continue the veggies and hummus tradition at playgroups from now on, but each time, bring a different one of the 16 flavors of Tribe’s hummus!
