Procrastisnacking: How to Make your own 5-Minute Mediterranean Snack Plate

Take your snacking to the next level with with this simple idea for a fun and creative procrastisnack! You can’t possibly be productive on an empty stomach, so put down the bag of boring chips and treat yo’self to a delicious plate of healthy mediterranean-themed snacks that will give you the brainpower to get through any task!

This entire snack can be assembled in 5 minutes or less.

Here’s what you need:

Veggies:

I recommend half of a thinly sliced red bell pepper and 1-2 persian cucumbers sliced into four strips. It’s a (kind of) proven fact that food taste better when it’s been sliced properly, so don’t hesitate to take the time to prepare your veggies right.

Hummus:

I personally like Trader Joe’s Smooth and Creamy Hummus, and for this snack I went with a roasted red pepper flavor. Good decision.

Stuffed Grape Leaves/Dolma:

For a canned product, these are actually delicious and a super easy way to make you feel like a fancy mature adult who eats foods *vine leaves stuffed with rice*. Also found at Trader Joe’s.

Feta:

Invest in a good quality feta– it will make a serious difference in the tastiness of your snack. My favorite is Montchevre Goat Milk Feta because it’s friendly for #lactoseproblemz. You can find this cheese at Whole Foods!

Flatbread:

Because vegetables can’t be the only means of transportation for hummus and feta into your mouth, there needs to be bread. Heat a piece up in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and slice into four triangles. Thanks again, TJ!

After you’ve gathered all of your materials, assemble them on a large plate in whatever way you desire!

You could create a well-organized and straightforward snack plate:

    1. @Rushan Absolutely! You can customize your veggies to your liking- I recommend carrots, cherry tomatoes, or even zucchini!
