Za’atar sumac vegetable hummus is the perfect appetizer for your easter table this coming weekend. I absolutely love hummus and make a batch every week and I have to say after making so many versions this one has been one of my top favorites. It’s deliciously creamy and served with super easy toasted whole wheat wraps!

I was so obsessed with carrots and hummus when I was pregnant and still am. This protein loaded dip is so versatile and such a yummy appetizer to have on your table for pre-dinner or lunch drinks. I have tried to ace a super creamy hummus and the key obviously is fat. So adding tahini and good olive oil helps to cream things out. You can even add coconut cream instead of olive oil if you like.

I discovered za’atar spice about a year ago, since it was a very hot topic, and recently when we went to Biarritz for vacation last summer, sumac was a new discovery in my spice cupboard. I love it when we travel to find these lovely finds of food goodies, I have replaced my shopping for clothes for shopping of spices and kitchen goodies. That indeed is mom life. Or is that my excuse for the overload or kitchen thingies in my kitchen cupboards.

But apart from that, let’s talk about this hummus and spices you just have to make if you don’t find them anywhere. I just love these middle eastern influences in food and they work so incredibly well with this creamy hummus and beautifully roasted vegetables. Not only is this hummus so tasty, but you can make it look so pretty too. I mean if the hummus tastes like the real deal then it must look the part too, am I right?
