Hummus! | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Do you like hummus? I know I do, and my kids LOVE it. Seriously. My son grabs it out of the fridge and eats it all the time.

Hummus is a delicious Middle Eastern dip made from mashed chick peas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, and various other flavors. We typically buy Athenos brand hummus, and my son’s favorite is the Greek flavor, and mine is Roasted Red Pepper. We eat our hummus with pita chips, carrot sticks, cucumbers, and even as a sandwich spread.

Here’s a little nutritional info from the Athenos site:
