Snag a tub of your favorite hummus and whip up this Mediterranean Bruschetta Hummus snack platter for a tasty pre-dinner nosh that’s sure to satisfy!
It’s forever my goal to somewhat “fill in the blanks” with our snacks and seize opportunity to sneak in extra nutrients we may miss at mealtime.
Snacks for us are typically more on the casual side, and fall into a more intuitive eating sort of routine. Some days we’re positively snack happy while others merit one substantial snack sesh that’s more of an unofficial pre-dinner meal. Sometimes we go so overboard when 5pm hits that our pre-dinner nosh turns into dinner itself!
Often if there’s a missing component from our standard breakfast-lunch-dinner routine I’ll try to make it up within a balanced snack. It’s always a great opportunity to sneak in some much needed lean protein (chickpea hummus and greek yogurt, I’m looking at you!), fresh fruit, or veggies.
We try to keep the focus on whole foods when possible (kettle corn counts as a whole, food right? right!!?) and serving up snack trays makes things fun and delicious!
Some velvety hummus here…. crisp veggies there… and a sprinkling of carbs for good measure make for the ultimate snack plate. I like to top my hummus with a simplified version of my go-to bruschetta topping, making a quick + easy pre-dinner snack feel like a fancy Oscar party appetizer….
