This is ok, but I think the hummus lacks depth of flavour and there’s WAY too much of everything for two portions in my opinion. I don’t think it’s a very interesting ‘take to work lunch’, it’s better suited to appear alongside other buffet plates on a party table, or a grazing snack at a dinner party etc.
