They were great, and perfect for the airplane. What is better than a filling snack that also gives you gas for dropping anonymous bombs on a crowded airplane? Win win people.
Having those hummus cups in our fridge changed our snacking while they lasted. I usually cut up veggies for lunches, but I was always the only one eating them. Suddenly, having hummus cups in the fridge got Troy to snack on the veggies too! I loved this change of habit, but wasn't willing to shell out the $5.99 every week to keep us in hummus cups.
Light bulb moment baby!
I'd like to introduce you to DIY Knock Off Sabra Hummus Cups.
|The photo blows, I know. It's now dark in my kitchen by 7 pm. Sigh.|
1 batch of my hummus
12 mini 4 oz jam jars (these suckers can be hard to find. I eventually got them at a small local hardware store)
Distribute the hummus amongst the cups, and secure the lids. You can freeze these for later, or store them in the fridge for about 4-5 days.
Wanna see what these bad boys cost?
- Dried garbanzo beans $6.55 for 5 lbs. That is $1.31 per pound, and there are 2 cups per pound (loosely estimated), so $.32 for the 1/2 cup I used.
- Organic olive oil. I buy this at Costco and am estimating I used less than $.25 for this recipe.
- Kosher salt (another estimate) $.01
- Lemon juice (estimate) $.10
- Tahini $.50
- Garlic (free, from my garden)
- Smoked paprika and sumac (estimate) $.05
- Jars $9.99
Total: $11.23, or $.94 per cup
However, since the cups are reusable and will be used again and again, that drops the future price to $.10 per cup. TEN CENTS PER CUP.
