Admit it. Holiday season has you running around like a crazy. You’re trying to close out the year, make everyone on your gift list happy, and, of course, stay sane while you’re at it. Whoever says there’s no such thing as holiday madness is sadly mistaken, and unfortunately healthy eating gets put on the back burner in times like this. Luckily, I’m here with a solution and you’re here reading this post.I have a confession to make. I love hummus.
There. I said it. I’d eat it out of the container if I could, but being that I generally like to be more civilized than that and plan most snacks and meals, I won’t do that. When it comes to clean snacking, I’m all about two things: protein and fiber. Hummus has both, especially this Everything Hummus from Tribe. For a filling snack I paired this drool-worthy hummus with crunchy copycat Mary’s Gone Crackers and smoked salmon. This is a faux-bagel match made in heaven. I feel comfortable recommending Tribe Humus because it’s actually made from real chickpeas, spices, and ingredients. It’s simple, yet so full of flavors, which is why I was so excited to partner with them. Being that the everything bagel seasoning is such a craze right now, I had to try their Everything Hummus. It’s kosher, non-GMO, and cholesterol free.
- 1 cup cooked brown rice
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- ¼ cup sesame seeds
- ¼ cup flax seeds
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 3 Tbsp water (add one at a time)
- 2 tsp salt
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- In a food processor, combine cooked brown rice and quinoa until it reaches a mushy consistency.
- Add sesame, flax, and chia seeds with 1 Tbsp of water until you can form a ball.
- On a well-oiled sheet of parchment paper, place about half of the dough on it. You want enough to cover the pan you're going to use. With a can or rolling pin, begin to roll out the dough to make it into a thin, flat sheet. Once it's rolled out flat, you can take the top of a spice container and make rounds to get a circular cracker. Alternatively, you can leave the dough in one big sheet and break it apart once it's done cooking. Repeat steps with the second half of dough.
- Place in the oven and let cook until dry and lightly browned. At the 15 minute mark, flip over the crackers and bake for another 10-12 minutes. Cooking time will vary, so check crackers every 5 minutes to make sure they're not getting burnt.
- Let cool and enjoy with Tribe Everything Hummus
