Sabra Sun Dried Tomato Hummus
Sabra's Sun-dried Tomato Hummus caught my eye when I was shopping at my local Costco, mainly because it was being sold in an econo-sized 32 ounce tub. Can you tell that I love hummus! I make it myself or buy various brands, and I eat it at least once a week.

As with most other hummus varieties, the "main spice", in this case, the sun-dried tomatoes, were all dolloped on the top of the hummus, rather than being pre-mixed in. Figuring a little mingling was in order, I mixed the hummus all together a day before I tried it. When I did that, I could already tell how creamy this hummus is and I couldn't wait to try it. The flavor was superb. The sun-dried tomato flavor comes through, but it's not overwhelming. A pleasant taste of tahini accompanies it harmoniously too. I soon discovered that after devouring a quarter of the tub along with a good chunk of my pita chips, perhaps buying this huge tub was a giant mistake!

One ounce (or two tablespoons) of Sabra Sun Dried Tomato Hummus contains 60 calories, 5 grams of total fat, no saturated fat, 140 mg sodium, 1 gram of fiber, and 1 gram of protein. The sodium is pretty low for a condiment, but the fat and calorie count is similar to regular sour cream, even if the fat is healthy fat. I bought my 32-ounce chub for a reasonable $8.00; one 8 ounce chub in a regular store cost around $3.00, so it's definitely worth buying in bulk ... and portioning out in moderation.
