The Bounty of Veggies!


I went to a baby shower for a super good friend of mine. I wanted to make something healthy and yummy - so I went with the good ol' classic : a hummus platter! I made a huge batch of Hummus (I always use Dreena Burton's recipe for Classic Hummus) - and sprinkled on some sumac and dukkah. I really love the dukkah/hummus combo, it's a simple way to dress up your hummus into something that feels a little more gourmet. 

Then I arranged a bunch of fresh veggies... Isn't it amazing how beautiful veggies are, all on their own? So many beautiful, bright colors. I don't really like raw zucchini or raw broccoli, so I lightly steamed those ones first. In the end, the sugar snap peas were definitely the most popular choice, and zucchini were the least popular. So, next time - more sugar snap peas & I'll leave the zukes at home!

  1. I've never considered fancying up my hummus with a topping before, what a great idea! I'm not the biggest fan of raw broc' either so I'd definitely have steamed it, I'd have gobbled up all of the raw zucchini though, yum!

  3. I love Dreena's hummuses (hummi?) too :) I love the addition of the dukkah. I've never had it, but it sounds scrumptious. I'm totally with you on raw broccoli..it gives me indigestion! I would have eaten the zukes, though, raw or cooked! :)
