Cooking with the Moms

Hummus is more than a dip for vegetables and crackers. We love it as a spread for sandwiches, an ingredient in salads, and even in desserts. On this week's show, we celebrate National Hummus Day with two new recipes: Hummus Brownie Bites and a Mediterranean-inspired recipe for Hummus, Chicken & Grape Tartines. Hummus is made with chickpeas, tahini, oil, spices, and salt and it comes in a variety of delicious flavors. Lemon hummus anyone? We teamed up with Sabra for the show, so tune in for the recipes and news on an amazing giveaway.
