You know I’m not much of a party person, I’m so not good at talking to people that I don’t know. Big groups give me anxiety, even if it’s just a family reunion where I know everyone. But. The food? It makes even the most anxiety-ridden party better. And the food that fits onto little appetizer plates are the best. The worst thing is trying to eat with a knife and fork off a little plate and trying not to look foolish. All that said – these little babies are a perfect small-plate party food!

I am one person who happens to love hummus. Not only because it’s easy to remake into new kinds, but it’s also the perfect way to get extra protein and fiber throughout the day. Hummus isn’t as fatty as nut butters, and by eating two tablespoons of hummus daily you get your total bean recommendation for the week. I mean seriously! The hummus in this recipe? Two tablespoons is only 70 calories! That is the kind of daily recommendation I love. Low calorie, little bit of protein while dipping … and roasted garlic! How could a bean dip get any better? And not only is Sabra committed to helping us get beans in us, they are also holding their responsibility of bettering the environment and being eco-friendly to high standards. Their newest plant is being constructed from 20% recycled materials, will have a reflective roof and heat recovery systems to cut heating and cooling needs, and almost 35% of the energy will come from renewable resources! Who doesn’t love a company that is keeping its natural resources in their business minds!
The perfect part of smaller potatoes is that they are the perfect little biteable app! And with barely any ingredients there isn’t a lot to these. Start by washing and drying the potatoes then poking holes in them. Put in the microwave and let heat until fork tender – between 8-12 minutes. You want the insides to be squishy enough to scrape out easily, but not too soft and not hard. Once cooled scrape out the insides and dump into a bowl with everything else. Mash until smooth or chunky – your choice. I did chunky and it was really good. Fill the potatoes then top with a little green onion then bake for 20 minutes. Let cool a little then enjoy!
