This Hummus Platter is the perfect snack plate. Great for kids playdates, after school snacks or for an easy lunch. Load it up and dip away!

Can we all embrace, that my new favourite food ‘thing’ is plucking pretty, colourful shizz and popping them onto a tray until they look so appetising that I could nearly burst with excitement?

All on board with me? GOOD STUFF!

After my Popcorn Movie Snack Platter, please welcome this Hummus Platter

✅ No cook, super quick, summery kids dinner.

✅ Also great for a grown ups get together with a glass of wine.

✅ So easy but looks SO impressive!

What I used in the Hummus Platter:

Hummus – I used two different types, plus added a drizzle of oil and some cumin seeds/pepper to ‘perk’ them up a little.

Vegetables – I used cucumber, carrot sticks, peppers, tomatoes. You could try broccoli, cauliflower, or any other veggies too.

Carbs – I used breadsticks, pitta bread fingers, crisps and rice cakes. You could also try toast fingers, cheese straws or anything else that’s ‘dippable’.

  • I used a 40cm x 30cm tray for this snack board.
  • You can use any large platter or board, or even just a selection of plates.
  • Make your snack board as BIG or small as you like depending on how many people you are feeding.
  • Choose a selection of different colours/shapes/textures of vegetables and snacks, this really adds to the overall look.
  • Pop some of your items/dips in bowls/dishes first and add smaller items around them.
  •  I like to put each item in 3 or 4 different spots on the board, so everyone can reach some of everything.
  • Like a traditional cheese board or charcuterie platter, there are no hard and fast rules of what to include, I just kept the contents of this board the sort of things we’d dip into hummus.


Which tray do you use to make your snack boards?

I use this platter for my snack boards. But any large tray or board, or even a big plate would do.

    Great recipes. Thank you. What is the best way for guests to take some hummus out of the bowl and put in their plate? Should I put a spoon in the hummus and expect them to spoon some onto their plate? Or since I have pita slices in the board would they just take a number of pita and dip it and then put on their plate? I have just four people over for a happy hour but not sure what is best as we sit around the table with board in the moddle

  2. That looks gorgeous – I keep seeing grazing tables are the new ‘thing’ and this is the kid-friendly version! Yum!
