Our first featured menu is a classic Israeli meal. This flavorful and delicious meal is also super healthy. Homemade hummus isn't as challenging to make as you might think, and the difference in taste is out of this world. Here we're recommending a garlic, lemon hummus – a perfect combo. The baked chicken coated in hummus comes out of the oven tender and moist, and the chicken lends an incredible flavor to the veggies. Top it all off with the bright, tangy spice of the homemade Schug and this dish is absolutely irresistible. Finally, round it all off with a classic Israeli couscous salad to provide a fresh crunch to the meal.
To make this gorgeous hummus – just whirl up few pantry items in a food processor and whir away! The liquid from the can of chickpeas makes this light and silky hummus extra creamy and smooth. Serve with pita chips, veggies chips or rice crackers.
This Israeli-inspired gorgeous lush green sauce packs quite a punch with delightful aromas of cilantro, garlic, cumin and cardamom. This light, low calorie yet rich and creamy sauce is spiced up with hot red peppers. It is traditionally served with Middle Eastern hilbeh, falafel or shawarma but don't you hesitate to add this versatile dip to soups, stews, pilafs, game, chicken, steaks or flatbreads.
