This is a slightly lighter take on good classic hummus. No sun-dried tomatoes, no pesto, no artichokes and basil. Just plenty of punch from za’atar and smoked paprika.
This is a hearty and well-seasoned cold-weather salad. Although za’atar varies, it does usually include sumac, sesame seeds and a grassy herb like thyme. You get a combination of earthy, nutty and sour — yum! Use the knobby carrots they sell at farmer’s markets in purple, yellow and orange. Wash well, but don’t peel.
