We’re big fans of Mediterranean food, so it will probably come as no surprise that we love hummus. But our love for hummus reached new heights earlier this week when we had this ‘loaded’ hummus accompanied by torn toasted pita bread to scoop up all the goodness.
The creamy hummus combined beautifully with the juicy cherry tomatoes, crunchy cucumber, sweet yellow pepper, robust olives and crumbly feta. And the chickpeas added a wonderful contrasting texture.
It was so delicious, in fact, that we said to ourselves that we’ll now find it hard to eat hummus in any other way!
