A fun twist on everyone’s favorite appetizer, this Middle Eastern seven-layer dip is made with creamy hummus, crunchy vegetables, toasted pine nuts and a drizzle of olive oil and za’atar.
Confession: the minute I finished photographing this Lebanese-inspired seven layer dip I immediately proceeded to lick the plate clean. Can you blame me? Creamy hummus is topped with crisp veggies then drizzled with fruity olive oil, toasted pine nuts and a good pinch of za’atar.
Fortunately, this addictive appetizer also happens to be a healthy snack packed with protein, fiber and nutrients. Which is good because my boys were eating it by the spoonful come dinnertime. With a pre-dinner snack this healthy, I hardly cared that they weren’t very interested in dinner
I don’t know what your calendar says today but mine has “National Hummus Day” written in bold. Yes, my friends, there is a holiday in honor of chick peas pureed with tahini, garlic and lemon juice. To say I’m excited would be an understatement.
And in the meantime, I’m dying to know: what is YOUR favorite hummus flavor? I’m totally digging Olive Tapenade and Spicy Chipotle. What about you??
No forks required.
