Hummus Veggie Tray

FoodFood for the Body
March 16, 2016 / By / , , , , , / Post a Comment

Every year, sometimes even bi-annually, we have an Olympics with a theme.  One year it was “Why not?,” another year was “YOLO,” and just recently, it was “#nextlevel.”  What I did with this veggie tray, humbly speaking here, was some serious #nextlevel stuff.

Let me back up a bit.  I was asked to bring a hummus veggie tray to a friend’s bday party.  Because it actually turned out as I envisioned it (which usually isn’t the case), I am posting here.  It’s been a looong while since I’ve posted recipes…enjoy!  I have a few in my back pocket, it’s just that I struggle taking mouth-watering photos.  There’s always my shadow, my finger in the picture, you know, small details that hinder.  I usually have minutes from the time it’s ready to the time it will be consumed.  Would you take my word that they’re good? 😉

I did what almost every person with internet access does now for inspiration.  I went to Pinterest.  It was there I found this gorgeous, farmer’s market style veggie tray.  I tried to make my own cabbage cup for the hummus, struggled, and then followed her tutorial to a T, and it was MUCH easier. 

I had 3 different types of hummus.  Two I presented in the hollowed cabbage bowl, and one in a pepper.  


The regular hummus, I used from here.  I have posted varieties of hummus in prior posts, like cauliflower and carrot hummus.  They’re here.  (again, pardon the pics, but the food is fantastic)  For the garlic herbed one, I made the regular hummus, and added 2 garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/2 tsp of parsley. 

Because garden season is just around the corner for many of us, I thought this would be great inspiration for a platter a simple garden can create!  This also would be a great appetizer for the Easter celebration.  

I made this a second time, and only did carrots and crackers.  That was simple and a HIT!  Enjoy, and have a wonderful day!
