HUMMUS PLATTER

You probably know my love for hummus by now. I eat any kind of hummus you put in front of me from this Lebanese Hummus Recipe to a Roasted Red Pepper Hummus to a Lemon Hummus

Today I am sharing a Hummus Platter in partnership with Heinen’s to help you celebrate Memorial Day and the arrival of summer! It takes your favorite hummus to the next level. You will start with your favorite hummus as the base and top it with all of those Mediterranean ingredients you love so much. When I make this I top my hummus platter with chopped kalamata olives, feta cheese, chickpeas, chopped cucumbers and tomatoes along with fresh herbs and I serve it with fresh vegetables and pita chips. 

This makes the perfect warm weather appetizer that you can serve when you have a gathering or a nice snack platter for your family when they are hungry and you want to feed them something healthy.

When it comes to the hummus that you use feel free to buy your favorite store-bought version but I highly suggest you make your own. It is so easy to do! When you create the hummus platter you can add whatever Mediterranean inspired ingredients you have on hand. 

HERE ARE SOME OTHER IDEAS THAT ARE GREAT TO ADD TO YOUR PLATTER

VEGETABLES: I love adding a variety of chopped vegetables to my hummus. Aside form cucumber and tomatoes I especially like red bell peppers, celery, radish or carrots. 

BEANS: I added chickpeas to the top of my hummus platter but you could also use white beans. 

SPICES: Try sprinkling extra spices on the finished product. I love using za’atar or sumac! 

GREENS: I think that arugula, micro-greens or chopped romaine makes a nice addition to this appetizer.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH THIS HUMMUS PLATTER

PITA: I always serve my hummus with pita bread or pita chips. You can also make your own pita chips by following a recipe like this. 

VEGETABLES: Crisp, fresh vegetables are a healthy option to serve with this hummus platter. I love cucumber, carrots, celery and bell peppers. 

PICKLED VEGETABLES: Many Mediterranean restaurants will serve you pickled vegetables with your hummus platter. If you can get your hands on pickled turnips add those or make your own, or try pepperoncinis or pickles. 

CROSTINI OR BAGUETTE: Add baguette or crostini to serve alongside this hummus platter. Your guests will love it.
