These pretty appetizers are the perfect way to start a vegan feast! In France, we like to start any important dinner with an “apero” consisting of drinks and finger food. The more important the event, the more sophisticated the appetizers will be. I love this custom and just because I’ve decided to adopt a plant-based diet doesn’t mean I have to stop to perpetuate the tradition all together. I have tons of vegan appetizers’ recipes in the pipeline and this is just the start of me posting them! Stay tuned!
Also, since adopting a plant-based lifestyle I try to make sure I get enough protein. A great way to always be on the safe side is to have a pot of hummus in your fridge!
Serving: 10 – 12 appetizers
Total Time: 30 minutes
– 1 zucchini
– 200g hummus
– 1 pack round oat crackers (I bought the crackers from the brand Nairn’s)
– poppy seeds
– fresh dill
Wash the zucchini and slice them.
Pour the hummus into a pastry bag and put on the decorating piping nozzle of your choice (for this recipe, I used a closed star). Apply pressure to the bag until the filling begins to flow. Pipe slowly and steadily into circles to form a small mountain of hummus on top of the zucchini slices.
Place each zucchini slice onto an oat cracker.
Sprinkle with poppy seeds and fresh dill.
Enjoy with a glass of bubbles!
