Veggie Charcuterie Board with Smoked Almond Cheese, Pink Hummus & Avocado Dip. Perfect for healthy munching while throwing a little party or just enjoying a cozy evening for two.

The NEW YEAR is literary around the corner and I am sorry for publishing this Veggie Charcuterie Board recipe the last minute. I just hope that you are still going to be able make it tomorrow, if you chose to. Luckily it is super easy, just make sure you soak your almonds early in the morning or tonight.

By the way, if you don’t have almonds you can also use cashews, which will be just fine. Also, the Pink Hummus can be made with chickpeas, instead of Black Eyed Pea, or you can use white Navy Beans. I made the hummus with chickpeas at this time and that;s why is not as bright pink as the one from my older recipe. Clearly, the white beans mixed with red beets works better to achieve that lovely pink.

Nevertheless, both ways are delicious and the colors is nice as well, even if you are using chickpeas. I haven’t met anyone yet, who doesn’t like hummus, so even if you just make it plain it will be fine too. It’s the last end of the year, so just cut up your fruit and veggies, make a dip and relax.

I truly look forward to sit back and watch my favorite shows all day. I had very busy Christmas and last few days, therefore tomorrow is the day to relax. And of course, to say goodbye to old 2020 and welcome the new 2021. Thank you for visiting and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Wish you all the best! Stay healthy and safe!
