    If there’s one thing you can count on me having in my refrigerator at all time’s it’s Sabra hummus.

    Whether I need a healthy after school snack for my boys or have to throw together a quick appetizer for girl’s night in, I know that if I have hummus on hand I am never far away from a delicious and satisfying snack, appetizer or main dish.

    Most recently I decided to turn hummus into the base of a main dish by loading it up with loads of delicious Greek toppings. For added protein, I brown ground lamb with a little salt and pepper. This is a great time to get creative by adding your favorite spices such as oregano, cayenne or garlic powder.

    Next, I spread a platter with Sabra hummus then sprinkle the warm cooked lamb directly on top. Since the meat is warm it gently heats the hummus allowing all of the lemony, garlicky flavors to release. You know how a tomato tastes better at room temp? The same goes for hummus.

    After that, it’s time to pile on the toppings. Diced cucumbers, onions, tomatoes and any other crunchy veggies you love work well here. Afterwards, sprinkle with feta, kalamata olives and sliced banana peppers.
