Healthy Holiday Hors d’oeuvres

There are many indulgences leading up to the holidays so why not pick healthy foods that are still full of flavor that everyone will love, even the kids! One of my favorite appetizers to serve guests is my Hummus Avocado Lemon Dip paired with Kii Naturals Rosemary Pistachio Artisan Crisps  What you need: 1 box of Rosemary Pistachio Artisan Crisps  1/2 a ripe avocado 3/4 cup chickpeas 1/2 cup green peas (I love to hide green vegetables where I can…the kids haven’t noticed yet (hehe!)) 1 clove of garlic (minced) Half a lemon juiced 1 tsp Himalayan sea salt  fresh ground black pepper to taste How to make: Throw all ingredients (except crisps) into a strong blender or food processor Blend until a smooth consistency or the consistency of your choice – I like to leave in a few chunks for texture Serve the spread in a bowl surrounded with crisps Garnish with a lemon This paring goes great with a crisp fruity pinot grigio or even cold glass of bubbly!
