Hummus Lunch Ideas—Perfect for School and Office Lunches

Do you have hummus lovers in your house? I do! Not only do we have hummus lovers, but we also have gluten-free and grain-free diets that I have to take into consideration.

In this post, you’ll see three ways you can use Sabra hummus in grain-free and gluten-free lunches. Did you know MOMables is launching a grain-free meal plan?

I am very particular about the type of hummus I purchase for my family. Just like coffee, I like consistency. Over the years, I’ve gotten used to Sabra’s creamy texture, and with ten different flavors, variety is available!

Hummus is made from pureed chickpeas. This is the dip that totally has America under a spell. How can a product made with such simple and natural ingredients have such a hold on us? Once you examine all of the flavors Sabra Hummus has to offer, the health benefits, and the many ways in which you can use hummus, it really is no wonder why it’s so popular. The savory dip is just irresistible!

I mean really, what’s not to love?! It’s naturally gluten-free and high in protein and fiber. MOMables is all about providing you with a well-balanced meal plan that has everything your kids need to keep healthy and strong!

For those who are on gluten-free diets (and even for those who aren’t), it’s the perfect lunch box builder or snack. Plus, it is ultra-portable. And for those of you who thought hummus was just a dip, you’re in for a real treat! Not only can you use it as a dip for fresh veggies, pita wedges, crackers, pretzels, etc., it can also be used as a spread for sandwiches and wraps or to stuff avocados and veggies like above!

Next time you make a sandwich or wrap, use hummus instead of mayonnaise. Or you can spread some hummus on your toast or bagel instead of butter or cream cheese in the morning. Another great aspect of hummus is that it’s so filling, you don’t even need bread!

You can also use hummus as a base to make your own salad dressing or even toss it with hot cooked pasta. The possibilities are truly endless. Plus, because Sabra Hummus offers so many different flavors to experiment with, I’m certain you’ll never get bored!

In our upcoming Grain-Free Meal Plan, you’ll receive three single-serve meal ideas (lunch) and two family-size meals. All of which will have you eating naturally grain-free. In this plan, you can expect to see more ideas on how to incorporate hummus into meals.

If you haven’t tried hummus yet, I recommend you head over to the store and give it a try. I would encourage you to also make sure you have some fresh veggies or crackers on hand. But all you really need is a spoon—once you try it, you’ll be hooked!
