I love classic hummus and often make it with falafel and whole wheat pita wraps along with some fresh juice to make a complete healthy meal. Luckily all the family loves this combination and doesn’t ask me more. I mean like sometimes if I make a dish either girls won’t like it or Husband would become fussy and then I have to make something special for the unsatisfied member of the family.
But as the whole family loves hummus, so I keep trying to introduce variations like beet hummus and this spinach hummus. So this time they loved the spinach hummus and we all had a nice filling and scrumptious evening snack with some deep fried traditional falafels. I could have made the falafel baked but seriously the fried ones taste so amazing that I don’t want to miss the exotic flavors.
