Nothing is better than making a delicious, crowd pleasing appetizer to serve to your friends and family. A bonus is when this app is ALSO good for you!
½ cup of homemade Tahini (see recipe)
Olive Oil( drizzled as needed)
2 tablespoons of Paprika
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 can of great northern beans( drained but not rinsed)
2 carrots- chopped into sticks
3 peppers of different colors- deseeded and then cut into strips
1 cucumber with the skin on- cut into ¼ inch thick slices
1 bag of snap peas- washed with the ends snapped off
For the hummus, place the beans and tahini with a drizzle of olive oil into our blender or food processor. Turn on high for 20 seconds. Drizzling more olive oil into the mixture until it gives a thick creamy texture.
Add the garlic and paprika- if you are making a bigger serving and using 2 cans of beans make sure to double everything else as well. (this will serve 8 people) Blend on high for another 20 seconds, drizzling more olive oil if needed.
If this is being served day of, put into a beautiful bowl and arrange your crudité around the bowl. Top the hummus with a drizzle of olive oil and a dash of paprika for color.
This is a make ahead appetizers so please feel free to put this hummus into Tupperware and the vegetables into a big Ziploc baggie. This will last in the fridge for up to 3 days before serving!
