It seems like everyone always goes crazy for fall flavors as soon as September 1st rolls around. I get it – I’m as excited for apples and pumpkin and chili as anyone else. But before we dive headfirst into soup season, let’s take a second to appreciate the fact that summer produce is at its peak.
September is the perfect time to hit up your local farmer’s market. For the most part, the weather is cooler so you can walk around leisurely without melting. And the produce selection is on point. I can’t get enough heirloom tomatoes right now. They’re sweet and juicy and not at all mealy. Plus they’re absolutely gorgeous!
I grabbed a few over the weekend and made them the centerpiece of this fantastic everything bagel hummus board. It’s loaded with creamy Sabra hummus, juicy tomatoes, seedless cucumbers, pickled red onions, boiled eggs, briny capers, and everything bagel seasoning. This hummus board is an amazing snack to pick at any time of day, but it’s also an awesome idea for brunch. Serve it with bagels (I love pumpernickel) and let everyone customize their own sandwich. Or do what I’ve been doing lately and make a hummus bowl that you can scoop up with pretzel chips (or a spoon!)
Sabra has a ton of amazing flavors, but I love using their classic hummus for boards like this one because it acts as a pretty neutral backdrop that lets the vegetables shine. If you want something bolder, their olive tapenade hummus would also be amazing – you could omit the capers since the olives have that briny flavor.
How to make the perfect medium boiled egg every time
Perfect medium boiled eggs take these hummus bowls to the next level. After a ton of experimenting, I finally found a method that gives me the perfect boiled egg every time. The whites are firm without being grainy and the yolks are thick and jammy. That thick egg yolk combined with hummus? HEAVEN.
To make them the way I do, place your eggs in a pot and add enough cold water to cover them by about an inch. Put them on the stove and bring the water to a boil. It will seem like the eggs are cooking for forever, but I promise it’s worth the wait. Once the water is at a rolling boil, set your timer for 4-1/2 minutes. Keep boiling the eggs until your timer goes off, then immediately put them into some ice water to stop the cooking. The eggs are ready to peel when they feel cool to the touch.
