The holidays are starting to ramp up, which means more holiday parties in the upcoming weeks. If you’re hosting festivities at your place, feeding a group of hungry guests can be a challenge when there is only so much time to prep. I usually like to have a charcuterie board out so guests can nibble on a few items before the main courses begins. This year, we are mixing things up by creating a hummus board to bring more plant-based protein in the mix, plus hummus is so delicious and full of flavour.
To put your hummus board together, it all starts with choosing your hummus flavours. Sabra has 8 flavours to choose from and they are available at most major grocery store chains across Canada.
- Classic Hummus
- Caramelized Onion with Smoked Paprika
- Greek Olive Hummus
- Roasted Garlic Hummus
- Roasted Pine Nut Hummus
- Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
- Spinach Artichoke Hummus
- Supreme Spicy Hummus
I went with Classic, Roasted Pine Nut and Supreme Spicy Hummus to have a good diversity of hummus flavours.
When deciding what else to add to the hummus board, you can decide to choose a plant-forward option or meat-forward based on what your guests enjoy. I personally like a good mix so guests can pick and choose what they want to munch on.
When arranging it on the table, I like to use large cutting boards or larger plates to create an epic hummus board. I used 4 boards to lay everything out of my dining room table.
- Herbed Goat Cheese
- Applewood Smoked Cheddar
- Double Creamed Brie
- Coppa di Parma
- Mild Genoa Salami
- Red Peppers
- Dried Apricot
- Dried Mangoes
- Veggie Crackers
Mix up the ingredients however you like. I kept my hummus board simple so I didn’t have to do any additional cooking. I spent most of my time cutting vegetables and taking items out of their packaging. Sabra offers delicious, creamy hummus inspired recipes made by hummus experts, check out a few of their recipes on their website.
I am an absolute fan of hummus and a hummus board is perfect for the holidays for entertaining made easy. Adapt the taste to have it more plant-forward or meat-forward by picking and choosing what accompanies the hummus. With 8 different flavours of Sabra hummus to choose from, the combinations are endless. Looking forward to see what is on your hummus board this year.
