Today I am sharing one of my absolute favorite appetizers, Mediterranean Hummus.
If you follow me on Instagram you know that I love this stuff and make it often.
Some of you have asked for the recipe, so I thought I would share it with you.
I like this so much that I often make it for a quick and healthy lunch.
Hummus is healthy, gluten-free, low calorie, and full of protein and fiber.
Using pre-packaged hummus
is a real time-saver.
I make this in about 15 minutes
from start to finish.
Quick and Easy Mediterranean Hummus
2 Whole Wheat Flatbreads or Pitas (cut into eighths) (I use Flatout Brand)
1-2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 10 oz. Package of Sabra Classic Hummus
1 Tsp. Minced Garlic, raw (I buy pre-minced in the jar to save time)
2 Green Onion Tops, sliced
4 Fresh Basil Leaves, ribboned
2 Seeded Campari Tomatoes (or plum tomatoes), diced
10-12 Pitted Greek Kalamata Olives
2 Tbs. Crumbled Feta Cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the flatreads into 8 triangles per flatbread. Place on baking sheet and lightly brush the tops with olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
While the flatbread bakes, assemble the hummus. Scoop the hummus onto a nice serving platter in a circular and flat shape. Cut the green onion tops into slices. I find using kitchen scissors works best for this. Roll the basil leaves up and slice across to make ribbons. Sprinkle the minced garlic, basil, tomatoes, feta and green onions over the hummus. Top with the Greek kalamata olives.
Serve with warm pita chips when done.
Serves 4-6 as an appetizer.
TIP: Make it Gluten-Free by substituting cut up
veggies such as carrots and broccoli
in place of the flat bread.
The great thing about this recipe is
that you can half it very easily.
I often make half for myself when
eating it as a meal.
