My parents came to visit a few weeks ago. Before they arrived, I wanted to have a bunch of yummy snacks in the house – cause, you know, I wanted to show them that I could adult be a good host.
My dad love hummus, and luckily, I had just received a bunch of different flavors from Sabra for National Hummus Day (Yes, it’s a thing, and it’s May 13th!). I put a few out with veggies over the course of their visit. They were almost instantly devoured, but because Sabra was so generous, I still had a ton of hummus left over.
What does one do with a ton of hummus? Create a new hummus-focused recipe of course! Enter these Spicy Carrot & Zucchini Fritters.
Rather than dip veggies into the hummus, I thought, “Why not combine them?” I grabbed a container of Supremely Spicy Sabra Hummus (that one is my favorite) and got to creating.
I’m happy to report that not only is this recipe delicious, it’s also so simple. All you need are carrots, zucchini, Supremely Spicy hummus and an egg. Mix all that goodness together, fry ’em up and you’re golden (just like these fritters).
I will say, these get a little bit messy when you’re forming the fritters, but hey, the messiest recipes are the best recipes, right? RIGHT!
The hummus alone is a great source of protein and healthy fats. Pair that with an egg and veggies and you’ve got it all going on. I love having these alongside or on top of a salad, but they’d also be delicious as an appetizer or, wait for it…
