I’ve been really digging snack-styled lunches lately. Enjoying the variety that comes with having a little bite of this. A little taste of that. It’s perfect for my schedule, since I never really seem to know quite when I’ll get the chance to snag something to eat.
Usually these snack-styled lunches begin and end with a big bowl of hummus.
Hummus snobs everywhere would tell you that this is not actually, legitimately hummus.
Where’s the tahini? they (the hummus snobs, that is) would ask.
But alas, I am not a hummus snob. And so, yes, I do call this hummus. And no, there is no tahini. And yes, you will absolutely love every bite. Especially when there is a pile of Life is Good, sweet potato chips along for the ride.
To keep this lunch feeling fresh and filling, I added some veggies to the mix.
Peppers. Carrots. Snap peas. My favorites.
With a little touch of sweetness.
A little bite of this. A little taste of that.
That’s my kind of lunch.
