Hummus is one of our always-in-rotation snacks. So reliable. So delicious. But lately we’ve been making it from scratch and realizing it should be treated as much more than a quick bite. You can slice raw veggies from your box and serve yourself a personal crudité platter, like we’ve done here. If you’re looking for something more filling, add falafel or spiced lamb to your hummus and serve with pita. Sounds like dinner to us.Print

How can you disguise vegetables in food?
|There are many ways to squeeze an extra serving of vegetables into a meal. One secret to making vegetables taste even better is to add a squeeze of citrus fruit, such as orange, lemon, or lime juice, to balance out any lingering bitterness in your vegetables. If you’re looking for ways to completely disguise vegetables, you could try hiding veggies a couple different ways. Smoothies are an easy way to sneak in nutrition from vegetables. You can also easily hide veggies in bread or muffins, like zucchini bread or carrot cake. Or, try incorporating veggies in recipes like hamburgers, salsa, tacos, mac ‘n’ cheese, or pizza.|
