DIY EATS | Colorful Crudité
One month into 2018 and I have been sticking with my healthy eating! Now for a challenging food day: Super Bowl Sunday. Instead of bringing my usual meat and cheese platter to the party, I am switching it up with veggies and hummus, aka Colorful Crudité. It’s been too darn cold to venture out to grocery shop, so I have been using Peapod for a few months to get my groceries delivered, so when they reached out to create some posts, I said “Heck ya”! I love working with brands I already use and love. Plus, they have super fun veggies (hello purple cauliflower!) and if you go right now to this shopping list and order, you can have all your veggies and hummus before game day!
The first secret to making it look like you spend hours on the platter: Spoon out the center of a red cabbage, then fill with store bought hummus. Add canned chickpeas, oils, a sprinkle of paprika and garnish.
Next buy all your veggies already sliced. Peapod has prepackaged multicolored sliced veggies, so you can buy just the right amount, and skip the time in the kitchen cutting everything.
To create the board, place your bowl of hummus and olives on the end of a wood board and build off each bowl as a starting point. Surround each with a groupings of veggies and crackers, then use nuts to fill in the in between space. If you have little gaps, fill with kale, and sprinkle some pomegranate seeds on top for a little color! Click here for a shopping list!
