Kid-Friendly Hummus Recipes!
Get the Kids in The Kitchen with The Help of Sabra Canada!
With Spring Break just ending for us and for some, it is around the corner–it can get busy at home. With the polar vortex and the high temps and then the huge dips makes for a lot of time indoors. What better way than to teach your kids good habits and useful life long skills then to keep them busy in the kitchen?
Why not go further and have them make HEALTHY eats?
Dipping is a great way to introduce flavourful foods like salsa, guacamole and hummus to a finicky eater’s diet, and having kids “cook” their own snacks and meals is a terrific way to spend time as a family. Plus, it gives them a creative outlet and something to do that’s enjoyable for all!
I admit, my kids can be picky when it comes to trying new things. One thing that I discovered when Sabra asked me to try out some of their amazing products is that their palates are already expanding. If you know Gabby, you know that she loves cooking and best of all learning new things in the kitchen. Little did I know was that she already LOVED hummus and had eaten it with her Aunt many times and even at school. Definitely a pleasant surprise to me and my Hubby.
About Sabra Classic Hummus:
Sabra’s Classic Hummus combines fresh chickpeas with a touch of garlic and tahini (ground sesame seeds) to create a smooth and creamy spread. It’s as healthy as it is delicious (which is to say, very). 2 tbsp. contains 70 calories and is low in sodium.
The recipes above were made entirely by Gabby, who is 10, with my supervision. I am proud to say that she made these on her own and was over the moon to be able to make them herself.
Watch the Tutorial.
Gabby decided to make Hammy Hummus Pin Wheels and Cucumber Hummus Dip Appetizers for herself and us too. It was the perfect finger food with a healthy starch, dairy, protein, fat and fiber. We had a good time and not only did she make a healthy snack, she felt self-accomplished and I taught her how to properly use a knife and we had a little bonding time.
The Hammy Hummus Pin Wheels are made with whole wheat tortillas, fat-free Mozzarella cheese, pepper to taste and Sabra Classic hummus.
The Cucumber Hummus Dip Apps are an edible bowl to enjoy your Sabra Classic hummus in, then–you eat the bowl. Don’t forget the baby carrots to dip. It made for a nice refreshing afternoon snack on a cold and dreary day.
Let me tell you, these did not last long in our house. I think I have a Hummus monster because, it’s all gone! These recipes were super easy and required very little supervision. I just helped Gabby wash the veggies and guided her with the knife, she did everything else as you saw in the video!
