Cook the Book Friday’s – Hummus

I made this several months ago, as part of our “OG Easter”, or, Easter as Jesus might have had it. I made a grilled lamb leg that had been marinated in yogurt, lemon, lemon zest, and mint, lavash bread (from scratch), a tomato salad, yogurt sauce (as my husband calls it, but really tzatziki), and hummus. 

We are huge fans of middle eastern food in our house. My husband mostly grew up in Northern VA, just outside of the DC beltway, and we lived there for a few years after we got married, wherr there was the infamous Moby Dick’s House of Kabob, which started small, vut in recent years expanded to a very large enterprise in the DC metro area. Thursday night’s were reserved for “Mobys and a Movie”, where we would get take out from Moby’s”, to this day, our gold standard of Middle Eastern restaurants, and watch a movie at home. 

Moby’s hummus is amazing. I have yet to find a place that makes such balanced, flavorful  hummus. That is, until, I made David’s recipe. Balanced and flavorful are but a few words I would use to describe it. If beans were paleo (and bread, too) I would probably eat this every day and be a very happy camper. Alas, I am happy to know that, at a minimum, my search for delicious hummus is at an end.

    I love that photo, makes me want to dig right in on all that delicious food. I love the story of Mobys and a movie, adorable and fun. You are so right that David’s hummus had flavor, we thought it was delicious too, and one that will be repeated.

    What a great idea for an Easter dinner! I loved your Moby’s story, too. Favourite places like that are what makes a city home.

    What a lovely feast for two in that picture! Thanks for sharing Thursday’s date night with Mobys and movie!

  4. I have to look for the Moby Dick’s House of Kabob next time I go to DC, where the food scenes are popping. Yes, I also agree that this recipe is well balanced and easy to follow. A great one!
