Recipe type: Appetizer, Christmas
Cuisine: American
Serves: 7
Ingredients
  • 1 container (17 ounces) prepared hummus (flavor of your choice)
  • 1 head broccoli florets (reserve the stem)
  • 1 head of cauliflower florets
  • 6-8 cherry or grape tomatoes
  • Fruit or vegetable to shape in a star
Instructions
  1. On a medium-sized serving platter, spread out the hummus evenly in the inside of the plate.
  2. Using the broccoli florets, press florets into the humus shaping it into a Christmas tree as you go (from top to bottom). Your florets should be around the same size.
  3. Shape the reserved broccoli stem to make the tree trunk. Place at the base of the "tree".
  4. Using the cauliflower florets, begin pressing the cauliflower into the hummus to fill in all of the empty spaces around the tree and frame it.
  5. Garnish your "tree" with "ornaments" by using cherry or grape tomatoes. Top with a star fruit or vegetable star and serve.
