FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & BABIES 7 MONTHS+
Hummus is one of those condiments that I don’t think gets enough hype. Serve it alongside vegetables or chips, as a spread on sandwiches, or on top of your favorite entrée; there really isn’t too many dishes that can’t use hummus in one way or another.
However, not all hummus is the same, and for those who say they don’t like it, definitely haven’t tried Lilly’s Hummus. As good, if not better, than homemade, and a lot more convenient, you may just start planning your meals around your hummus, instead of the other way around.
THE PRODUCT: Lilly’s Hummus is definitely not your typical line of hummus. Made with certified organic garbanzo beans, locally sourced produce, and free of gluten, fillers and preservatives, you will be amazed at how fresh and satisfying such an under-praised condiment can be.
Lilly’s also uses 100% pure olive oil in each batch, with all of their fresh veggies hand-roasted over specially-made hazelnut shell briquettes, giving you hummus like no other.
Available in 8 delicious flavors including Smoked Tomato and Basil to smooth, piquant Cracked Pepper, you will be searching for another excuse to add Lilly’s to your dish. [Fortunately for you, they have included several recipes on their website to help out!] http://www.lillyshummus.com/recipes/
NUTRITION-WISE: Not all hummus is created equal and many brands really aren’t that good for you (once you examine the label). However, Lilly’s goes above and beyond your typical hummus with Organic garbanzo beans being their main ingredient. With a short list of ingredients, including: Organic Garbanzo Beans, Olive Oil, Sesame Tahini, Lemon Juice, Sea-Salt, Garlic, and Citric Acid (in their Plain flavor), there’s no wondering about any mystery ingredients or if they are really good for you.
The rest of their flavors are very simple as well, only maintaining the addition of freshly and locally sourced produce and spices. All the varieties are also non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, preservative-free, trans-fat free, and made with organic beans (mainly garbanzo, although there is a black bean variety).
WHERE TO BUY: To find the retail location that sells Lilly’s Hummus nearest you, please visit their Store Locator.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Generally served as a condiment, hummus truly is packed with nutrition and can even be enjoyed straight off a spoon (my son sure does!).
However, not all hummus is the same and many are not only filled with artificial fillers and preservatives, they taste like they are too. For this reason, I have been known to make my own, but unfortunately don’t usually have the time. Thankfully I have discovered Lilly’s and all their delicious flavors.
Great as a snack, as part of a dressing, or even mixed in with my favorite pasta, hummus has become more than a simple condiment but more of a go-to ingredient in many of my meals.
Try Lilly’s today and it very well may become a staple in your kitchen as well.
