Egg Whites with Hummus

I know I’m taking a pretty big risk by posting this egg whites with hummus recipe, but if you stick with me and try it I know you’ll be happy you did. Everyone is so into their scrambled eggs or egg whites for good protein in the morning but that gets so boring to me. I do love egg whites, they fill me up and keep me from wanting a snack 20 minutes later (hello, most cereals are totally that way). That’s why I started eating avocado egg whites, plus the avocado made it even more filling.

One day I was out of spinach for a smoothie, protein was gone as was our yogurt and granola, and the list goes on and on. We had just returned from a little weekend getaway and I needed to go grocery shopping. The only things that I could really do something with to avoid eating the cold cereal that just didn’t sound good at all was hummus and eggs. I figured if avocado works then maybe hummus would too. It’s so yum!!

I added a little hummus to the egg whites and then threw in a little season salt just to spice things up, and you know what? You cannot even tell it’s hummus. Actually, they almost taste like your normal, cheesy scrambled eggs without the cheese! Seriously, they are so soft and delicious! Serve with avocados and tomatoes and you’ve got yourself a high protein breakfast and it’s not just plain egg whites! Booyah!

What Is Hummus?

Hummus is a dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas or other beans.

It is usually made with olive oil, sea salt, lemon juice, garlic and tahini, which is toasted ground sesame.

Hummus is a good source of protein and fiber.

Chickpeas, which hummus is made from, are high in iron, folate, phosphorus and B vitamins.

Why Eat Egg Whites?

Egg whites are high in protein yet low in calories, fat, and cholesterol.
