Hummus Spinach Artichoke Dip on RachelCooks.com

I’d like to have a moment of silence for tahini and hummus. Tahini sent my little man to the ER a few weeks ago. Scariest night of my life and I’ll never eat hummus again without thinking about that.

Update: The below was written in 2015. As I type this now in 2019, we don’t keep hummus in our house. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking when I wrote this, but we’re a lot more careful now and don’t take risks like this. All families and kids with allergies are different, but please be smart if your child has a food allergy! They’re not something to mess around with. The only time I eat hummus now is when I’m out and about without my kids. 

Thankfully, the rest of us can all eat hummus. Very, very, very carefully. Maybe I shouldn’t even have it in the house, but it’s hummus. So…it’s in the house. After my daughter eats it, I escort her to the bathroom to immediately wash her hands without touching anything so she can wash her hands with soap and water. I’m completely nuts (he’s allergic to nuts too, since we’re talking about it) but rightfully so. Never want to see little man’s face swollen up like that again. Thankfully I’m now armed with an EpiPen Jr., but I hope and pray that I never have to use it.


I also plan to take a Sharpie to everything that contains sesame seeds whenever the grandparents or a babysitter are in charge. Things will be obnoxiously labeled with “NOT FOR N!!!” and “DO NOT LET N EAT THIS!” Or maybe I’ll just stuff my face before we have a babysitter so it’s not even in the house.

I’m not sure if all this makes me the best Sabra Tastemaker or the worst Sabra Tastemaker ever. Either way, I’m honored to have the title again this year and I’m excited to be bringing you a few recipes made with hummus and some of Sabra’s other great products.
