Y’all, it’s holiday season! It’s the best time of the year.
It’s a time that everyone is happy, cheery and thankful. Event season is in full effect and I’m so excited that I got to kick off the season with Manuscript Cellars at their Sip Through the Season party held at Meddlesome Moth. Meddlesome Moth did an amazing job of pairing four Manuscript Cellars Limited Edition varietals, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon , with their delicious appetizers. One of my favorites was the Meddlesome Moth Hummus.
It paired perfectly with the Manuscript Cellars Limited Edition Sauvignon Blanc. The primary fruit flavors of Sauvignon Blanc are lime, green apple, passion fruit and white peach which is why tasted so good with it. If a food has parsley, rosemary, basil, cilantro or mint, chances are Sauvignon Blanc will make a great pairing.
Meddlesome Moth did the coolest thing ever – they provided the recipe for their hummus! This would make the perfect appetizer for any holiday party.
- 2 12 oz cans of chickpeas
- 2 Tsp of lemon juice
- 1/2 Tsp of cumin
- 1/4 Tsp of cayenne pepper
- 2 Tbs of tahini
- 1/2 Tsp of garlic powder
- 1 Tsp of kosher salt
- Water as needed
- Strain cans of chickpeas and rinse.
- Combine all ingredient, except salt in a food processor and blend.
- Add salt to taste.
- If hummus is dry, add water until you have desired consistency.
Did you just read the recipe and think, “whoa! How easy”? So did I. It’s so simple and can be made in no time. Grab a bottle of Manuscript and you’re good to go! Want another Meddlesome Moth recipe? Hop over to Manuscript’s page for the Moth Ball recipe!
The night was spent not only sipping on wine and noshing but enjoying amazing company.
