Sunny Hummus with Dippers

Sunny Hummus with Dippers

Serves 8

A simple tasty tactic uses toasted sunflower seeds sprinkled on top of hummus to give it additional richness and crunch when served with raw vegetable and pretzel dippers. For a boost of color and flavor, stir some paprika into the hummus along with the sunflower seeds.

  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) hummus
  • 4 cups (8 ounces) mixed vegetable sticks (carrot, broccoli, snow peas, etc.)
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 ounces) unsalted pretzels or bread sticks

Place sunflower seeds in a small, heavy skillet and toast over medium heat, shaking the skillet occasionally, until seeds begin to turn golden, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to cool. Mound hummus on a small plate or divide it between single-serving containers. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds and serve with vegetables and pretzels.
