We’re heading for the peak of holiday celebrations and while traditions are always in order, it’s also a great time to stretch your cooking muscles. When you’re looking for creative culinary inspiration, look no further than some of your already favorite recipes.

For example, let’s take two popular dishes—creamy hummus and oven-roasted vegetables. So, with Fall in general and Thanksgiving in particular, we’ve taken the most delicious mezze/dip to come out of the Middle East and combined it with a fall harvest horn-of-plenty array of veggies roasted to caramelized perfection.

Surrounded by fresh, colorful vegetable dippers (baby cucumbers, watermelon radishes, veggie sweet peppers) and assorted crackers and pita chips, this smoky and savory Roasted Vegetable Hummus platter will take pride of place on your daily dining or holiday table. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
