One of my go-to snacks mid-afternoon to make it through to dinner are these loaded celery stalks! Stuffed with hummus and topped with Kalamata olives and feta, they are irresistible!
If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that I have used hummus in every way possible. But when it comes to snacking, hummus is pretty much the unofficial snack food.
I often snack on hummus and celery along with some olives mid-afternoon, when I need a pick-me-up before running out to my kid activities. Of course, it’s also a great snack for kids, although my youngest prefers to eat hummus directly out of the tub with a spoon.
I’ve also served these Hummus Stuffed Celery Stalks at parties as an appetizer platter. They please the crowd and it becomes a great way to not have the guests double dip their veggie in the hummus tub.
Great appetizers like this one bring people together at parties and it’s the perfect recipe to share with friends.
Is Celery and Hummus a Healthy Snack?
Celery and hummus are both packed with nutrition, making this a terrific snack. Celery has tons of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, while hummus is also rich in fiber, protein, calcium, iron, and antioxidants. A winning combo!
Hummus is a great substitute for mayo in many recipes, as I do in my Greek Deviled Eggs recipe. More nutrition, less fat! When you want a low-carb dip, celery makes a healthy swap for crackers and chips.
If you add feta cheese and olives to the equation -both classic ingredients from the Mediterranean diet- you get a healthy snack made with real and good-for-you ingredients.
