Habibi’s Dips Giveaway!

Okay, so we’re well into the new year. How are your healthy new year’s resolutions coming along?

This coming weekend will no doubt be a great reason for us all to eat our body weight in chocolate, and not feel guilty for it, but let’s talk healthy options, anyways, for both before and after.

habibis hummus vegetables

It’s worthy to note that dark chocolate really is good for you–so you shouldn’t feel guilty eating that anyway. It really is the world’s most perfect food. But the world’s second most perfect food, for me, is hummus.

It’s kind of amazing. It’s made from chickpeas, which are a wonderful, inexpensive and vegetarian source of protein. And it’s really a blank slate. Hummus is creamy, and you can use it in a ton of ways. You can also add all kinds of spices and flavourings to it, and it will take those flavours on, changing its profile from spicy to sweet to daring.

The nice folks at Habibi’s (which is a local manufacturer of Hummus), sent me a ton of their stuff, and I’ve been scarfing it down every which way. They have a wide variety of flavour options, and they also sell baba ganoush (a wonderful, smoky-tasting roasted eggplant dip/spread) and tzatziki (a cooling yogurt-based dip with lemon and dill), as well as tahini (a sesame seed paste).

I’ve been making wraps with my hummus: you just schmear a bunch of it on a tortilla, add whatever vegetables turn you on (shredded carrots, lettuce, cucumber, sprouts, I also like to throw in some olives), wrap it up, and off you go. I have also been taking some time on the weekend to prep vegetables, and then I put them in containers that have a side separate container for the hummus. You could also do this in a mason jar: you just put the hummus in the bottom of the jar, and then load it up with veggies, standing vertically. These make great grab-and-go snacks.

I’m giving away a gift basket of Habibi’s Dips, worth $30. You’ll get to sample all of their different flavours.
