Bring the healthy flavors of the Mediterranean to your family’s table with this easy-to-make recipe for Hummus, Chicken & Grape Tartines.
Celebrate National Hummus Day (May 21, 2015) by digging into hummus.
Disclosure: I created this recipe for Sabra and were compensated for the recipe and social media outreach. All opinions are solely my own.
I’m all about healthy and easy here at LHT, and I’m all about getting kids (even the pickiest among them) to try new foods. While this open-face sandwich may seem sophisticated, it’s actually quite flexible … and kid friendly.
To turn your kids on to tartines (and hummus), set out a Make-Your-Own Tartine Bar with hummus, shredded rotisserie chicken, diced grapes, feta cheese, and arugula salad, and let everyone create their own.
Hummus is made simply from chickpeas (did you know they’re a bean and that beans are classified as a vegetable?), tahini, oil, garlic, and spices. By eating just two heaping tablespoonfuls of hummus a day, you’ll meet the Dietary Guidelines’ goal of 1½ cups of beans each week.
