Starting the new year on a healthy note is hard – especially with big game parties coming up fast! With eating healthier one of my top resolutions for 2012, I was excited to have the opportunity to review a lighter option in snacking for this year’s festivities from Tribe.
Tribe has been around since 1993 – making all-natural hummus that is free of artificial flavors, preservatives, hydrogenated oils, and high-fructose corn syrup. They currently offer three lines of their hummus – original blends, toppings and organic. I was fortunate to review two of their original blend varieties – horseradish and sweet roasted red peppers.
If you are a horseradish fan, this hummus is for you! It’s creamy and smooth texture is perfect for dipping and you really get that tangy horseradish taste in each bite. I loved this hummus with raw broccoli – a great taste combination. This hummus would also make for a great spread on wraps for a tangy kick.
Sweet Roasted Red Peppers Hummus:
The sweet roasted red peppers hummus did not disappoint. This was another creamy blend that was perfect for dipping raw veggies – I especially enjoyed it with carrots and raw peppers. This spread also would be great as an added flavor on a veggie wrap or with pita chips.
Overall, both hummus dips were a wonderfully tasty treat and I plan on serving them with a variety of raw veggies and pita chips at my party this February. From the milder original hummus, to the spicier Chipolte, there are flavors for every palate – sure to be a hit with everyone looking to eat a little lighter this year.
Tribe hummus can be found at a variety of supermarkets and natural food stores around the country and retails for about $2.99. Need help finding a store closest to you that sells Tribe? Check out their free natural food finder app.
