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.

 

MINT & PEA HUMMUS

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.

GRILLED ZUCCHINI WITH PARMESAN PESTO

These little babies are one of my absolute favorite party treats! They’re both healthy and delicious, so no one’s going to have anything to say but “Thank you!” for bringing them. ;) Prepare them at home on your grill or bring the pesto mixture and your sliced zucchini and prepare them fresh on your friend grill! They’re so easy you can prepare them in minutes.

 

GRILLED ZUCCHINI WITH PARMESAN PESTO

Combine a cup of basil leaves, a clove of garlic,  and a quarter cup of toasted pine nuts in a food processor, until well blended. Now, slowly pour a half cup of olive oil and 3/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese and pulse your food processor again. This pesto should be very thick.  (Feel free to season with salt and pepper to taste)

Thinly slice 6 zucchini length-wise and lightly brush them with olive oil. Again, feel free to season with a little salt and pepper here.    Place them on the grill till they are tender and marked on both sides. Then, let them cool. Once cooled, spread one tsp of the pesto mix on one side and roll them up. Secure it with a toothpick.
