Excited to bring you the most festive autumn mezze platter tonight! Full of all sorts of delicious inspiration for whipping up a truly stunning entertaining spread this fall.
I’m so excited to partner with Spice Tribe again for another round of recipes! Their unique spice blends give me so much inspiration to bring new flavors and cuisines into my kitchen. This time around I’m bringing some middle eastern flare to the blog with a show-stopping autumn mezze platter! Spice Tribe’s Ancient Halaby blend offers up bold, citrusy flavors, making the spread come alive with ease.
Mezze is simply an assortment of small bites served together as an appetizer…kind of like the middle eastern version of a cheese & charcuterie board. I put an autumn twist on it to fit the season, of course, with seasonal additions that turned out beautifully.
The Ancient Halaby comes into play with the roasted delicata squash + carrots and pumpkin hummus. The spice blend combines aleppo pepper, paprika, sumac, coriander, garlic, lemon peel, thyme, and cumin. The flavors carry throughout the spread and create a really authentic feel to it all. I just love it.
Let me just say… this mezze platter is HUGE. I’d serve this for a dinner party or weekend gathering if you’re into the idea of serving small bites over a plated meal. You can also pick and choose which items you want to include on your platter to make it as small or large as you’d like. The recipes below are meant to serve as inspiration, so get creative and mix and match however you please.
Here’s what I’ve included in my autumn mezze platter…
Autumn Mezze Platter Components:
Spiced Roasted Delicata Squash & Carrots
Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
Marinated Feta & Artichokes
Toasted Bread with Sesame Garlic Butter
Olives + Dried Apricots + Grapes + Pistachios + Cured Meats
I hope this post inspires you to make an autumn mezze platter of your own! I served this to my family last Sunday and everyone devoured it. It’s so tasty and such a fun way to entertain.
