I adore sharing platters, anything served in mounds in the middle of the table can only end in joy.
The variations of toppings you can add to a bowl of hummus its literally endless, but a new favourite of mine is this spicy vegan mince version. Heady with cumin and garlic, warm and spicy with Harissa paste. Use as little or as much of you like of Harissa, 1 tbs is a guide some are ferociously hot so go easy.
Feel free to add big mixed salad, some grains or a tomato salad to the table if you are turning into a feast!
Also I have deemed this suitable for all seasons, due to fact it can be enjoyed all year with only your sides adapting to the seasons.
