Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Plain hummus is fine, but feel free to experiment with your favourite type – from garlic to roasted red pepper.
  • Tip 2
    Not a fan of goat cheese? Feta or blue cheese both work well as substitutes.
  • Tip 3
    Sumac is a tart spice that adds a lemony flavour to Middle Eastern dishes and spice rubs, such as za’atar. Look for it in gourmet stores or online.
