Pomegranate Hummus - from Gretchen
Photo from: Ask in Your Face
Like the last two years, I'd like to devote all of the posts in December to recipes that are particularly great during the Christmas season. Gretchen was gracious enough to share this recipe from her husband's aunt. It's a festive way of serving hummus. You can find many hummus recipes on the internet or buy it from your local store. Gretchen mixes her hummus with a can of chick peas and cumin. Once it's mixed, she tops it with the arils of one fresh pomegranate. Sometimes, you can find the arils at the grocery store. But, if not, you can pick them out of a pomegranate. This video gives great instruction on how to easily get the arils out of a pomegranate. This dish makes a beautiful presentation for holiday parties. Gretchen serves her hummus with pita chips from a local Greek restaurant, but these can be purchased at the grocery store as well.
