Ingredients:

Hummus: this recipe needs one container (or more for a larger crowd) of pre-made hummus. I went with a roasted red pepper hummus because I love the flavour. Feel free to switch up the flavour based on what you or your family likes! 

Kale: these leafy greens will help make this bowl extra festive while adding a tasty crunch to the hummus bowl. Anyone who loves kale chips will LOVE this appetizer!

Cherry tomatoes: a handful of cherry tomatoes will add a pop of red to this festive bowl. You can add them raw or roasted (as suggested in this recipe). 

Pumpkin seeds: this is optional, but I love the nutty, crunchy addition of pumpkin seeds in this bowl! 

Whole wheat pitas: this will provide your vehicle for the hummus! I love these homemade pita chips as a simple and healthy dip partner. Feel free to also add veggies or other crackers that your group may like.

Pita chips: 

Cut pitas into triangles and spread out on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. You can add any additional herbs/spices you want here too! 

Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes, or until pita slices are golden brown. 

 

Hummus Bowl: 

Wash and remove the stems of a few leaves of kale. Break into small bite-sized leaves. Place kale on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Add the halved cherry tomatoes to the same pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake at 350F for ~10 minutes, or until the kale is crispy and tomatoes are wilted. 

Add hummus to a serving bowl. Top with roasted kale chips and tomatoes. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds. Serve with pita chips.
