Build Your Own Dip

August 31, 2011

Foodbuzz sent me a coupon to try Sabra hummus as part of the Tastemaker program, now I have had Sabra many times before but I have really made many dishes with hummus. I thought of an idea of a build your own layered dip bar. Everyone likes different things and having a personal dip for each person is a great way to make them happy.

 

Ingredients

 

Sabra Hummus (I used Spinach and Artichoke)

1 roasted red pepper (I used an organic jarred one), diced

1/4 cup chickpeas

1/4 cup diced tomatoes

1/4 cup chopped olives

1 tsp thyme

Pinch Red Pepper Flakes

 

Other toppings suggested: salsa, black beans, shredded cheese, chopped nuts, artichokes, cooked spinach

 

Directions

 

In an individual ramekin or bowl, place about 2 tbsp of hummus on the bottom.

 

Add in toppings for each person in layers, for my dip I added chickpeas, diced tomatoes, chopped olives and then topped each one with a bit of thyme and a few red pepper flakes.

Everyone gets to layer to their satisfaction with the toppings they like. I created one for me and the boyfriend and put them in the fridge for about 20 minutes until we were ready to eat.

I served this with brown rice and flax seed rice crackers, and with a few carrots, broccoli, and snow peas.
