The days are slowly shifting from warm and long to cool and short. Last night we hosted what will most likely be our last dinner party on the patio. We stayed up too late with good friends, eating simple food, wrapped in blankets, candles lit, playing board games, laughing into the night. It’s amazing (and awesome) how quickly Cards Against Humanity gets inappropriate. We ate well, lots of flavours and choices, but simple. Much like this Hummus Flatbread.
I love hosting parties where I can grab fresh and lovely produce and turn it into something more using very basic (pantry) ingredients. This flatbread is just that. The Inspired Greens Living Lettuce is fantastic to keep in the fridge. It’s still living since it’s harvested directly from the pot where it grew and will keep in your fridge fresh as if it’s straight from the greenhouse for days. Inspired Greens also subscribes to natural pest control and sustainable growing which means less pesticides and more love for our planet. This lettuce didn’t need much to make it shine. I drizzled the top with red wine vinegar, olive oil, and a little salt and pepper.
Last night I really wanted to have a dinner that promoted slower living. I’ve been feeling rushed constantly. More chatting over supper, slowing down to truly hear what others are saying, and enjoying the company of friends that we don’t get to see often enough. Recipes like this Hummus Flatbread make for slower evenings. Each bite reveals a new flavour, but it’s healthy, fresh, and completely satisfying. Everyone gets something they love and it’s so simple and quick to put together you’ll be enjoying your company versus working in the kitchen.
This is more of what I want to do. Simple, but quality recipes that my family and friends rave about. It’s easy to showcase quality produce, like Inspired Greens, in simple ways that everyone loves. The summer felt insanely busy and with back to school well underway, the barely warm enough evenings feel right to hit pause with those you love the most.
Here’s a quick VIDEO on this recipe to demonstrate its ease and the beauty of Inspired Greens Romain Trio Lettuce:
I will often make hummus to top these flatbreads. I still love this Lemon Basil Hummus, and last night I tried this Red Lentil Hummus that got rave reviews from friends (really creamy and great texture). My kids all love hummus and making a fun “pizza” that combines their favourite foods like hummus and salad make this a dish we’ll be enjoying for a really long time.
