How do you Hummus?


Not out of the question but I hit up WF a few weeks ago…nada

From an unlikely recipe source. Placeholder post.


I have a pound of chick peas soaking in salt water in the fridge. Will be processed for hummus soon, on my day off Wednesday

We go through hummus at a pretty good clip. It ain’t all dips and chips


WF doesn’t carry it- see if their store locator here is helpful

Or their website offers free shipping to order it (comes in double pack), amazin sells at about same cost by single jars

Tahini has become its own topic in my head. Off to start a new topic on it😉

“Add ice cubes as hummus mixture blends. This is a trick I learned from my mother-in-law who is a master of the Levant kitchen. The ice cubes help in whipping the hummus into a creamier texture–kinda like freshly churned ice-cream.”
-from The Mediterranean Dish blog

Worth a try.


Sounds interesting.

Okay, the ice cube suggestion is outstanding. Smooth as silk. I used two cubes and a bit less liquid bean broth.

Every try black chickpeas with black tahini hummus?

Soom is selling date syrup to retail customer now. I have been inquiring since last May. Just placed an order. Delicious sub for sweet syrups.


Kinda a riff on mujederah minus the rice. Growing up “jederah” as we called it was topped with the most delicious over caramelized onions

I don’t have it often but thats a delicious dish.


Date syrup mixed with tahina makes a great spread to mop up with bread.


I bet it does. Kinda like halava


We learned about it from an Iraqi friend.


I call it liquid halava. I often mix honey and tahini. That is liquid halava. The date would give it more character


I LOVE that stuff! Made a more simplified version that I basically lived on my first few yrs after college when my paycheck never went far enough, so now it’s a bit nostalgic !
