Hummus = Happiness

Who doesn’t like hummus?! It’s probably the biggest vegan, skinny trend to sweep across this city and I can’t do enough with this stuff! A skinny girl’s go-to snack for sure, so if your hostess isn’t supplying her own, this is a quick and easy platter to bring! Now, of course if your in a time crunch you buy some hummus from the super market and put it with some freshly chopped veggies but if you have a few minutes I suggest making your own! One of the best things about parties is that it really gives you a chance to let your friends try something new and a little off the beaten path. So bring one classic stand by (like a roasted red pepper or garlic hummus) and then give my mint and pea hummus a whirl as well! It’s a surprising and refreshing spread for your fourth of July BBQ.



Bring three inches of water to boil in a sauce pan and then add one pound of fresh peas and cook until just tender! Now drain them and cool them a little before adding them into your food processor. Combine with a third of a cup of tahini, a fourth of  a cup of fresh mint leaves and puree only until chunky-smooth. Add a pinch of kosher salt and your set! I like to garnish it with a little mint leaf in the middle.
