Take your simple hummus dip to another level, top it with a perfectly spiced beef, onion and pine nuts. This recipe incorporates the hummus recipe  I posted a while back. As for the beef, you can use ground beef if you like, I prefer to mince a tender thin cut steak. I like the texture contrast created by the chunks of minced beef and creamy hummus.

How do you make beef hummus?

  1. Start by roasting pine nuts until golden. 
  2. Sauté minced beef, onion and spices, then mix with the roasted pine nuts. 
  3. Make your hummus and spread out into a serving plate. You can use store bought hummus or make my easy hummus recipe
  4. Top your hummus plate with warm minced beef and pine nuts mixture, garnish with chopped parsley, if you’d like.
