Veggies and Hummus 100 Ways

Pyramid of circular Roots Hummus lids - yellow original, orange roasted garlic, blue oil-free original, burgandy hot chipotle, yellow mango sriracha, red thai coconut curry, purple black bean, green spinach, green lima bean, red roasted red peper. Pyramid of vegetables - beet, red bell pepper, cucumber, radish, cauliflower, celery, broccoli, zuchinni, carrot, green bean.

My top-ten favorite vegetables and the ten bold Roots hummus flavors produce 100 unique veggie & hummus pairings.

I eat a lot of snacks. With two to four workouts a day, I need to refuel after each one without being too full for the next. I am always looking for different healthy and tasty ways to get some wholesome nutrition in quick. I don’t always have time to fix recipes, even easy ones, so I often resort to shoveling in hummus straight from a bowl.  Varying both the flavor of hummus and the delivery method, though, keeps it from becoming monotonous.

With options like Mango Sriracha, Thai Coconut, and Hot Chipotle hummus; snacking with Roots is the way to go, and I count my lucky stars to have a partnership with Roots. I don’t usually reach for bread, chips or crackers with my hummus; while tasty, these don’t sit well in my stomach during workouts. So, I keep a varied stock of raw vegetables to use as shovels. I often go for dip-able standbys like broccoli, carrots, and celery, but also switch it up with some underutilized veggies including beets slices, green beans, cauliflower.

To get things rolling, I recommend trying cauliflower with Roots Black Bean hummus, tomatoes with Roots Mango Sriracha hummus, or carrots with Roots Lima Bean hummus.

  1. Alex,
    These are great ideas and I’m still working my way through all the Roots Hummus flavors! I love making sandwiches with hummus, kale and radishes.
