“Jerusalem” Hummus

Hummus. I feel like it’s one of those love or hate foods. These days there are so many kinds to choose from, like garlic, or red pepper, or chipotle. But, like most packaged foods in the grocery store, while it can be great in a pinch, it leaves much to be desired when compared to …
