Ed. word: This publish was initially revealed in Might 2018, however we wished to convey it again out of the archives in hopes that it evokes you to whip up one (or all) of those scrumptious appetizers throughout your time quarantined at residence. Right here’s to sunny, brighter days forward surrounded by family and friends.
We first fell in love with Monique Otero after following her on Instagram (@brunchpants) the place she paperwork straightforward, attractive recipes and her travels all over the world. After shifting cross-country from NYC to LA earlier this yr, Monique invited us out to the seaside for a picnic to welcome summer time. It was essentially the most excellent seaside day in (much more excellent) Malibu, full with solar, sand, strawberry shortcake, chilled pea soup, colourful hummus boards, and refreshing paloma cocktails.
Great products that you can use in your life.
We couldn’t resist sharing these three forms of hummus she whipped up for the event, and seems they’re the proper technique to kickoff any summertime gathering.
Scroll down for the recipes, and tell us which one you’re dying to strive!
When hosting a dinner party, Monique says she always lays out appetizers and cocktails first, so guests are entertained if she’s busy finishing up some last minute cooking. We’re loving her three flavors of hummus: original, red pepper, and cilantro lime (and all can be prepped in advance.) Each version contains enough flavor to shine on its own, but you can also serve up a little of each as a trio sampler. Add a side of pita chips, crackers, or fresh crudité for the perfect appetizer spread.
