Greetings from Austin, Texas. I’ve been home this weekend to take a little breather post graduating from college, getting engaged and something else exciting that I will announce soon.
One of the best parts about being in my family’s home on Lake Austin is the kitchen. It’s big and spacious, full of memories and most importantly, full. of. hummus. (see figure above)
Because my dad played in a golf tournament this weekend, we all were introduced to our new favorite hummus brand. Meet Zilks. They were the main sponsor for the weekend. Formerly known as Out to Lunch (which I didn’t realize when we met one of the partners), I’ve always been a big Out to Lunch hummus fan…until now they’ve rebranded and I assume Zilks bought them out.
Not only does Zilks do hummus (the name is short for Zilker Park–to all my Austinites, you will appreciate that), they also do tzatziki, queso and salsa. They cook their sauces and hummus right out of their kitchen in South Austin, and you can find their products at Whole Foods and Central Market.
My personal favorite out of the above flavors is the balsamic roasted garlic & red onion. Other flavors I can’t wait to try:
- basil pesto hummus
- chipotle sundried tomato hummus
- spinach & artichoke hummus
- black bean w/ lime hummus
- tzatziki Greek yogurt
They pride themselves on their wholesome and very few ingredients. Only the freshest and nutritious hummus possible.
So, wipe that drool off your chin and sprint to your local Whole Foods. Now now now!
