I think platters are super convenient, easy and impressive for gatherings or just to snack on yourself. I added lots of crackers, pita, vegan cheese, veggies and a few extras. On the side I made hummus which I have the recipe for right here. It’s quick and minimal but delicious.
1 1/2 cups of chickpeas (soaked)
1 Tbsp water
Half a garlic clove
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sesame seed paste
Juice of half a lemon
For the spices- add as much as you’d like depending on your taste preference.
The directions are easy, it may take a few tries the first time to get the right amount of flavor for your preference.
I blended the chickpeas, water, olive oil, garlic clove, lemon juice and sesame paste together first.
If it’s too thick (mine was) continue to add a tablespoon of water until you get your desired consistency.
I finished by adding my spices and dill last and blending it once more to combine everything.
Serve with a teaspoon of olive oil drizzled on top.
This is the perfect way to make your veggies tastier as well as adding protein into your snack!
