A Merry Hummus Appetizer

There really isn't an recipe for these fun Christmas appetizers. I'll give you a list of the things you need to create them and you could be as creative as you want to be.

Cut a round piece of pita or naan into the tree shapes.
Push a pretzel stick in the bottom of the tree shape.
Mix enough drops of green coloring into a tub of your favorite hummus to make it green.
Spread the green hummus on each tree wedge.
Now the fun begins as you decorate the trees with diced red pepper, chopped pimento, green peppers, or diced cucumber.
If I would have had a yellow pepper on hand I would have cut a yellow pepper star for the top.
You don't have to, but I toasted my naan lightly before I added the toppings.

Tip: Cut the veggie decorations for the trees in advance so you are ready to go once the hummus is spread onto the pita or naan. Be more creative than me and zig zag your decorations all over the tree.


  1. Hey - that's a great idea! Suppose you could use an avocado hummus as well for this. I might have to make this for our fitness club's potluck!

  2. What an adorable and easy treat to take to a party. Thanks for posting this.
