Oh my goodness!! This Chopped Za’atar Hummus Dip is a real treat and so different, we just know you are going to like it. We made this Za’atar Hummus Dip took it to a meeting and, after all the positive comments, we just have to share it with you. Wondering what Za’atar is?
Za’atar is a traditional and popular spice blend of the Middle East with a unique zesty flavor made from toasted white Sesame Seeds, Thyme, Sumac, Marjoram, Savory and Salt. We love this spice blend and couldn’t imagine anything more perfect to pair with hummus!
This recipe is a chopped and layered hummus dip, with lots of texture, Middle Eastern flavor, color, and freshness. The hummus, chopped veggies, cheese and spices work together to make this dip one of the tastiest we have ever had. This is a unique hummus dip recipe that you won’t forget. It is a little zany and a whole lot of deliciousness. We made this garbanzo bean dip with our garbanzo beans right from our very own farm. We would also like to add that using dried garbanzo beans in your hummus gives you a much creamier hummus than using canned. It may take some more time but it is well worth it. By now your taste buds are watering, right?
You may wish to make this hummus extra smooth because of layering it on top of the yogurt, so we suggest you remove as many of the skins as you can. For Step #3, we place the beans in a colander (saving the cooking water of course) and begin to rinse the beans under cool water. We rinse our beans using our water spray unit holding it close to the beans while gently turning the beans with a wooden spoon. The bean temperature change encourages the majority of the skins to loosen and fall off. Then we place the skins on a sheet pan, spread them out, pick out the loose skins and dispose of them, and continue with Step #4 to the end of the recipe.
We hope you love this recipe has much as we do! It is a great use of hummus and will wow anyone! Plus have you seen how beautiful it is? Our mouth’s are still watering! We recommend plating it for a small crowd and delicious! We like to scoop this garbanzo bean dip with tortilla chips. We were inspired by Tablespoon to make this great recipe.
