Veggie Hummus Recipe

Our boys tend to get the most fussy during the evening hours, usually right around dinner time. I think it is a combo of being tired and hungry. If we wait too long to eat dinner, things can get ugly. They can go from hungry to HANGRY in a matter of minutes.

If dinner is not ready and I can see the meltdowns coming, I pull out our favorite pre-dinner snack, Veggie Hummus. It keeps the boys happy while we finish making dinner. And I have been known to have a few hangry moments myself, so I like snacking with them:)

I also like serving an “unofficial meal” before dinnertime because it gives our family a chance to connect. We talk about our days, ask the boys questions, and have some fun. I love that it gets the entire family in the kitchen. Sometimes we turn on music and dance and sometimes the boys end up helping us make dinner. The kitchen is our happy place! We love laughing, sharing, eating, and enjoying each other’s company.

Sabra hummus is our favorite “unofficial meal” because everyone in the family loves it! Our boys always beg for hummus! To jazz things up, I top Sabra’s Classic Hummus with fresh vegetables. I love the color the veggies add and I am all about getting my boys to eat more veggies.

The vegetable topping is like edible confetti. I dice up cucumbers, tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, and red bell pepper. Sprinkle with a little parsley and DONE! It doesn’t get easier than that!

I like to serve the Veggie Hummus with cut up vegetables, homemade pita chips, and crackers. The boys love dipping anything and everything!

And sometimes the “unofficial meal” becomes our official meal because we get too full. I could eat this fresh and healthy spread every single day.

  1. Big hummus man here because my 2 girls (6 and 4) actually really like it. However, I’m a germ phone and they are NOT allowed to dip themselves in the bowl. Huge pet peeve. I know I’m being ridiculous, but I’ve seen where those sticky little hands have been! ewww. But it’s so good for them and I love how easy it is to sneak veggies down them. 

  2. Great healthy snack. I always love to give my kid something healthy for a snack. Fresh veggies with a classic hummus is a great option for all those who can’t wait until dinner time to feed their tummies.

  3. Love this idea!  Never thought about the diced veggies part.  And I love that your recipes and ideas are easy and relatable.  So glad I found you!
