Rainbow Hummus Mezza Platter

The origin of hummus is so vague and so many countries claim that they are the origins of this plate.
But one thing everyone can agree on is that “a well-made hummus is a delicious authentic appetizer that everyone loves!”
And no matter what color you want to make your hummus, each combination and addition to it combines it amazingly with the traditional hummus tahini traditional combination!


You make it green, pink, orange, red …any color you want and even with the same color you can make different flavors.
Last time I tried the three combination of hummus: green, red and plain for my hummus bites.
And I saw how my guest like it a lot! They were hooked on it and begging for the recipe from the first bites, the colors and the taste where so impressing and sophisticated as an appetizer dish but in fact they were so easy to make!
So, I was determining to make different shapes and versions of the hummus appetizers and other authentic appetizers that we have in our traditional cuisine.


But this time I wanted to try something with more deep flavors and more interesting look.
And boy! It was an amazing, & epic test; the combination was amazing, and my guests just fell in love with the colors and taste and I combine it with even healthier snacks, to dip it in instead of bread and chips!


I was so happy to see the faces of my guests full of surprise tasting those hummus dips appetizers and seeing in their eyes that my message is delivered to them perfectly: “clean and healthy authentic food can be even BETTER than an unhealthy choice. And more enjoyable with family and friends”.


You don’t need to cover your guests with a tile of chips and processed dips and unhealthy fatty finger foods to be a good person! trust me on that my guest left so happy and satisfied from my “clean healthy dinner “.
