Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Author: Healthnuttxo

One of my new favorite things is hummus. I have not really tried it until this year, and I am so happy I finally did after seeing and hearing great things about it.

So, Sabra sent me a coupon to try a free hummus, and I picked the Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. I wasn’t sure really why I had picked that flavor to be honest- I’m not even really a big fan of red peppers! But, it looked interesting and I figured Why Not?

And, after trying it, I am saying to myself Why Not Why Have I Never Tried This Before!?!?

Honestly, this was absolutely DELICIOUS. It is a pale yellow in color, with a center of pieces of red peppers. Super creamy, with a great flavor, I’m almost at a loss how to describe the taste other than delicious. It had a great salty flavor, with bits of garlicy flavor too. What I also liked was that the hummus itself did not have a really powerful red pepper flavor, and I could enhance the red pepper flavor to my preferences simply by mixing some of the middle in with the hummus. Perfection!

Overall, this gets 5 stars. I can CERTAINLY see myself eating this again. I find it very versatile and tasty, and I can’t wait to try other flavors that Sabra has to offer!

Sabra Roasted Garlic Hummus

Author: Healthnuttxo

Well, I recieved a free coupon for Sabra Hummus in the mail, and I was finally going to get to try some of this special spread for myself!

I decided to go to the store the next day to pick a flavor, and I settled on the Roasted Garlic Flavor.

So I got home and opened up the container. A pungent smell of garlic certainly filled the room- and it should! When I looked at the hummus itself, there was a pile mound of chopped garlic in the middle, followed by bits of red peppers dispersed throughout the spread. It had a pale orange/tan color, and also had little pools of orange liquid, (presumably garlic oil?) on the surface as well.

I decided to take the plunge. I took a carrot and dipped it in- yumm! It was CERTAINLY garlic-y, and had a distinct taste for sure! It was creamy and smooth, the only chunks being the garlic pieces if you chose to eat them. Very flavorful, and the perfect blend of garlic, chick peas and salty after taste.

I enjoyed this hummus three ways so far- one with plain/salted soy chips, one with veggies like carrots, and one (my favorite way!) in egg salad on whole wheat bread. Since I loooove egg salad, it was a great way to add flavor to the sandwich and add an extra kick due to thegarlic.

Overall, I give this hummus 4 stars. It was tasty, provided healthy fats, a little fiber, and is a much better replacement for ranch dip for dressings or mayo for spreads. And, although 2 tbsp doesn’t seem like a lot for a serving, it’s the perfect ratio if you are having a little baggie of baby carrots (of course, more veggies= more hummus!! 🙂 ). It really is delicious, and I plan on trying it with pretzels soon, too.
