Smooth, creamy and lemony with a hint of garlic and a few splashes of hot sauce, that’s my favorite kind of hummus. I topped my hummus with olives, capers, cucumbers, tomatoes, chickpeas, feta cheese and a drizzle of good olive oil. I’ve included my favorite homemade hummus recipe but please feel free to use your favorite store-bought brand instead. I served my loaded hummus platter with crackers and a crisp Chardonnay.
Seeds of Collaboration (SoCo) is a company that produces delicious tahini and has a social mission as well. I’ve used SoCo’s beautiful, smooth tahini to make many dishes. In the past I worked with the company to help promote their brand. Tahini, a key ingredient in hummus, is made from grinding toasted sesame seeds into a paste. It has an intense, nutty flavor, and is high in protein and minerals.
