Entertaining with Sabra

People spend long weekends differently; some love to entertain while others just enjoy quite time and laid back days. However you spend your long weekend, I’m sure good food is a major part of it!

For me, whether I’m snacking on my own or gathering with friends, I love foods that are easy to prepare and can be used to make fancier dishes too!

{Entertaining with Sabra Dips}

One of my favourite multi-functional foods is hummus! Did you know that last week was International Hummus Day? Seems there’s a day for everything now 😉 For me, hummus is a staple in my household. It makes my weekly grocery list as we tend to use it for everything:

  • As a dip for veggies and pita chips (my favourite brand is Stacy’s)
  • On sandwiches
  • In my breakfast wrap
  • On warm pita bread in place of toast and butter

For entertaining purposes, nothing is easier than bringing some dip worthy fresh cut vegetables, pita or corn chips and hummus! But if you want to get more creative, the Sabra Dip website has some great recipes to elevate your hummus. Here are 2 of my favourite recipes:

Mediterranean Nachos

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons Sabra Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • 2 Tablespoons Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
  • 4 Cups of Pita Chips
  • 8 – 10 Grape Tomatoes (cut in 1/2 length-wise)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped zucchini
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped Greek Olives*
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped pepperocinis**
  • 1 and 1/2 cups shredded Mozzerella

*try using the Sabra Greek Olive Hummus above in place of olives

**I would skip these and just make it vegetarian

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • Place pita chips in a 9 – 10 inch skillet (or any similar sized oven proof pan)
  • Top with spoonfuls of the Sabra Hummus
  • Sprinkle remaining ingredients over pita chips
  • Bake 15 – 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are brown
  • Serve warm

Makes 4 servings and total prep time is about 30 minutes.

This is a such a fun take on traditional nachos and the warm hummus adds such a great flavour to the dish!

Cucumber Cups

Ingredients:

  • 1 container Sabra Hummus
  • 2 English Cucumbers
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 bunch of parsley, finely chopped

Method: 

  • Peel cucumbers and slice into 1 and 1/4 inch pieces
  • Using a melon baller or small spoon carve out the seeds to create a vessel, making sure to leave the bottom in tact (these serve as the “cups”)
  • Fill each cucumber cup with hummus (about 1 tsp each); if you want to get really fancy use a piping bag
  • Sprinkle with paprika and parsley

I love these simplicity of this recipe but it definitely looks fancy enough to serve at your next party!

  • We love Sabra Caramelized Onion Hummus with chips! Tortillas, pita, or even potato chips! It’s also great as a spread when making wraps!

  • I love the roasted garlic hummus. My favourite way to use it is spreading it on pita chips. So delicious!

  • I really like the spicy one! We use it as a dip with bread, chips or carrots or mix it with coleslaw for a salad!

  • My favourite is the roasted garlic hummus and the roasted pine nut hummus. I love them on sandwiches and wraps instead of butter, mayo or mustard, and I also love hummus on pita bread for snacking, and I like to dip fresh cut veggies in hummus as well.

  • Southwestern Style Salsa on Chips

    I make layer dip with Southwestern Style Salsa,Supremely Spicy Hummus & Guacamole Classic along with fresh ingredients.

  • I love their roasted garlic hummus (in fact I quite literally just bought some) and it is a lifesaver when it comes to healthy snacking. Baby carrots and hummus give me life (as my Things would say!)

    I also LOVE using it in place of mayo on delicious sandwiches.

    Oh my goodness! Just remembered the Sabra guacamole! Sooo delicious on our weekly tacos!

  • My husband loves the Sabra’s on the Go.. He likes the different flavours and loves them in his lunches. A nice afternoon snack

  • I love the sabra guacomole and salsas,,I love it with nachos,,and I use the salsa for everything!

  • I like to have the Supremely Spicy hummus with rice crackers and carrot sticks with a glass of wine…

  • I love the Babaganoush , I use it for everything esp on pitas , The Spinach and Artichoke Hummus is a must in my house for me because I make a Spinach and artichoke hot dip for pits pieces and then I use this as well incorporated into my hand made sauce. The extremely hot hummus is really good when you are in the mood for spicy and it makes for a perfect dip for deep fried garlic BBQ wings

  • The roasted garlic is a true favorite of mine from Sabra. We like to dip homemade pita chips or french bread in, as well as cucumber & carrots.

  • The garlic hummus is my go to choice for so many things.I guess it would be my favourite.

  • I love using the hummus, Greek Yogurt as well as the guacomole not only as dips but also to add extra flavours to my salad dressings, spreads on sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs. Also amazing as a topper on any steak or pork chop! I haven’t tried the salsa yet though, that’s next on my list. Sabra, you’ve made cooking and snacking so much easier and delicious!

  • I am a huge fan of the roasted red pepper hummus. I could honestly just eat it with a sppon, but curb myself and have it with pita bread.

  • It would be great to win a Sabra prize pack.
