So, as you may or may not know for the past six months I’ve been one of Sabra’s official Tastemakers. I decided to partner with this great company because of the emphasis they place on the travel experience and how that influences what we eat. I can relate with trying to relive travel moments at home through food and that’s a big part of Sabra’s mission. So with this in mind and with the holidays already here, I wanted to share with you their .
In the you’ll find culinary inspiration for every type of meal and holiday party you may have on the horizon. I love the recipes in this cookbook because they remain authentic to the flavors found throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East, but with a twist. They’re also healthy, which is a rarity during the holidays. Unlike the dozens of sugar cookies and snacks in my house, Sabra hummus is something I never have to feel guilty about eating.
In addition to the recipes in this cookbook I also want to share with you one of my favorite recipes using Sabra Hummus. While traveling through Jordan, I noticed a common side dish that I had never seen before – ful. Popular at breakfast, but served all day long, ful is a basic staple of Jordanian cuisine. In its most simple version, this Middle Eastern food is made by mixing fava beans and a variety of spices. It’s also very common to serve ful with hummus, creating an easy to prepare and delicious snack. I quickly became addicted to Jordanian food and my tour guide’s mother was kind enough to provide me with a variety of recipes, including the one for ful. For a true Middle Eastern experience, prepare ful according to the recipe below and serve over Sabra hummus.
Ful with Sabra Hummus
- Fava beans
- Green peppers
- Olive Oil
- Boil the fava beans with water until they are very soft. (Can also be soaked overnight for same result)
- When soft, remove from heat and grind with salt until a paste forms.
- Add green peppers, lemon and salt to taste, and continue to mash.
- Top the finished product with olive oil and serve over Sabra hummus!
