Mediterranean Spiced Hummus #SundaySupper

There are two outdoor-friendly celebrations coming up this week — April 22nd is Earth Day and April 23rd is National Picnic Day! #SundaySupper loves a reason to celebrate, so we’re cooking up some yummy creations perfect for enjoying while outside. Thanks to T.R. of Gluten Free Crumbley for hosting!

When it comes to parties, I’m a total snacker. I like an assortment of different dips and of course, plenty of things to dip into the dips. Baby carrots, cucumber slices, cucumber sticks, pretzels, pita bread, tortilla chips… Fruit and a variety of salads are always good to have too. Hummus is a must — but not store-bought. Ever since learning how to make my own hummus, I refuse to buy it at the grocery store. It’s just WAY too easy to make it yourself! What’s even better is you totally control the ingredients, thus also controlling the fat and calorie content — super important when you’re making something that you know you’re going to be consuming copious amounts of. And you will definitely be eating TONS of this Mediterranean Spiced Hummus.

I used a spice blend straight from Israel for this homemade hummus, but it’s totally easy for you to achieve the same great taste by mixing up the blend on your own. Onion and tomato powders, Za’atar, pumpkin seeds, garlic…these are the main components of this Israeli Breakfast Blend. My friend bought it for me during her trip to Israel last year and I’m absolutely in love with it. Every so often, I unscrew the lid and just take in the incredible aroma. Ah, so delicious…

Mediterranean Spiced Hummus is just the thing to bring if you’re going on a picnic this week to celebrate National Picnic Day, or if you just feel like packing a basket on any given day to go out and enjoy the outdoors. Bring plenty of pita and veggies to dip or use it as a spread on your sandwich. Either way, you’re going to devour this Mediterranean Spiced Hummus in no time. My advice? Make a double batch!
