Strawberry Hummus / #SundaySupper / #FLStrawberry

The holidays are here, which means all the parties and celebrations are about to begin! This is such a fun and exciting time of year! Whether you are hosting your own party, or you are bringing a dish to a get together with friends and family, this Strawberry Hummus is a "must" for your menu. Made with beautiful Florida Strawberries, which are available from November to April, this Strawberry Hummus appetizer brings a new dimension to the classic "party dip"! I know your guests will appreciate that you took the time to serve something that is as good for you as Florida Strawberries. Did you know that just eight medium strawberries contain more vitamin C than one orange, or that they are practically fat free and a good source of potassium? It's all true! The only thing your guests will know is that you are serving them a unique and amazing appetizer that tastes incredible, and they can't stop enjoying it!

Strawberry Hummus
(makes 5 cups)
(printable recipe at end of post)

16 ounces Chickpeas 
1 clove Garlic
1 tablespoon Tahini
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1/4 cup Water
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 pounds Florida Strawberries
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Juice
various Crackers, Veggie Straws, Naan


Cook the chickpeas according to the package directions.

Rinse and trim the strawberries. Take out 3-4 strawberries to use later on top of the hummus. Don't add them to the food processor.

Add all of your ingredients in to a food processor or a blender. Let the food processor do the work of breaking up the strawberries. Don't be worried about over processing the hummus. The more it is blended and mixed, the better it becomes.


Look at those beautiful strawberry pieces! They are so gorgeous!
Place your Strawberry Hummus in the fridge overnight. This gives time for all the flavors to meld together. 

Putting it all together~Using the 3-4 strawberries that you held back from adding to the hummus, dice them into small pieces. 


Place the strawberry hummus into a bowl. I like using the glass bowl so you can see how gorgeous it is.
Place the diced strawberries on the top of the hummus.


Serve with your choice of crackers, Naan bread, veggie sticks, whatever you like.



I hope you enjoy this recipe! Thank you for stopping by!
