Classic Hummus Recipe
I participated in Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers and received Saffron Road products to facilitate my review
We’ve been in a snack rut lately. We’ll walk into the snack aisle and just be bored with all of our options!
When our box of Mom Blog Tour products came to sample from Saffron Road, I had a feeling our snack rut would be over and boy was I right! With 3 different varieties of products, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Baked Lentil Chip flavors include Sea Salt, Moroccan Barbecue, Garlic Parmesan & Cucumber Dill and Lentil Cracker flavors include Sea Salt and Rosemary Herb.
Snacks are a new product line for Saffron Road. Their launch this past year aligned with their commitment to bring World Cuisine products to the American people. I don’t often cook with lentils and chickpeas, but after hearing that they are among the world’s healthiest foods, I was challenged to try to find new ways to enjoy them. They’re a good source of protein, folic acid, and both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber.
Saffron Road’s Baked Lentil products are made from protein-rich lentils and offer a snack that is dense in proteins, low in fat and high in fiber. They’re also certified Halal, vegetarian and certified gluten free!
Because Saffron Road’s products are inspired by the balanced flavorful cuisine of the Mediterranean, I thought a delicious hummus recipe would be perfect to pair with the Lentil Chips.
