How to make traditional hummus, cilantro jalapeno hummus and fatiyet hummus, an Arab breakfast staple.
Welcome to The Bite! My name is Jackie and I’m so excited to be sharing with you some delicious recipes of mine that I’ve been accumulating over many years. Starting a food blog and YouTube cooking channel is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, and I’ve finally built up the courage and stepped up to the plate! I really hope you enjoy these recipes and the recipes to come!
To kick things off, I’ve decided to share 3 ways that I love to make hummus. I’ve received many requests for a traditional hummus recipe which really prompted me to start this blog. The traditional hummus is something that I’ve been used to eating from a young age, but as I got more involved in the kitchen, I realized it’s really just a (delicious) blank canvas! Being that I love spicy foods, I had to make a cilantro jalapeño version of hummus. I love the color and the flavor these two ingredients bring.
What is fatiyet hummus
Fatiyet hummus is a delicious dish that just makes me think of home. With a foundation of crisp pita bread, layered with traditional hummus and topped with deliciously fragrant meat and toasted almonds, it’s got everything you need in one bite! Whenever I visit my parents back home in San Diego where I’m from, my dad will always make this and place 3 spoons around the edges of the dish (for me, him and my mom) and we just dig in- it’s a community dish! No need for separate plates. We would always fight over who got the most toasted almonds or pine nuts, knocking each other’s spoons over in the process. This dish really means a lot to me and I couldn’t film a hummus video or write this blog without it.
If you’ve never tried hummus, this recipe is the perfect place to start! I’d love to know how you like it, so if you make any of these dishes, please tag me on Instagram at @thebitewithjackie and subscribe to my YouTube channel at The Bite and let me know what you think!
