Homemade Hummus

Thanks to Mezzetta for sponsoring today’s recipe.

During the holidays the parties are endless! It is pretty exciting but also can add a bit of stress to these months. When asked to bring a snack to holiday parties, I tend to always go the healthier/ not dessert way. Most parties are overloaded with sweet treats (and I make sure to take part in enjoying those things!) but people also love a little something on the salty/ fresh side! Hummus is surprising easy to make and if you just add your favorite dipping veggies, Mezzetta olives, and pita chips – you are set to go with a dish that delights!

I love picking up some fancy Olives and Peppers from Mezzetta especially around the holidays! They make a quick & easy dish a bit more fancy and all dressed up for a party. I took this dish along to one of our gatherings and people kept commenting on how long it must have taken me to get this all together – truth is, it was only 15 min!

  • I adore hummus and the idea of bringing a homemade version makes me feel so grown up, I love it!

  • I'm usually the one on baked goods! Sometimes, if I'm feeling too busy with other work, I just bring the utensils. I know, I'm horrible! Anyways, pita and hummus is delicious! So fresh and flavorful and healthy… Which naturally means that I can eat an unlimited amount, right? πŸ˜› -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  • I love that you don't use tahini (I never do because of its limited shelf life). This sounds wonderful. When I can bring a delicious, healthy food to parties and gatherings.
