This summer, get your grill on with these grilled veggies, grilled chickpeas, and whipped feta. Whether you’re looking for an appetizer-style meal or entertaining, this platter is satisfying, tasty, and beautiful to present to guests – or yourself!
Grilled Vegetable and Chickpea Platter
During the summertime, you want to be spending more time together and less time in the kitchen. I love grilling, because it’s a social type of cooking – you just put everything on the grill, close it, hang out, open it and serve. I’ve recently becoming obsessed with grilling after years of never trying it – believe the hype, people!
There are times when I’m in the mood to just eat a cheese and cracker platter, but I always feel like that’s not very filling and I often times feel myself craving vegetables afterwards. That’s why I came up with my new summer solution: a grilled veggie and chickpea platter, served with pita bread and whipped feta – we’ve got the cheese, the carbs, the protein, and the veggies!
This always works as an entertaining appetizer – put it out on the table, and I assure you, your guests will be amazed by the pretty presentation and also be excited for such a tasty and healthy option!
If you don’t want to make the whipped feta, you could serve this with some sliced mozzarella, or if you’d like a dip, a creamy pesto would be great, too.
I chose pita bread, because the whipped feta has a Mediterranean vibe to me, but some buttered grilled sourdough would be amazing, too. Make this dish yours.
And the best part is that this dish comes together in under 30 minutes, thanks to the ease of grilling!
