Lamb garnished hummus

Lamb Garnished Hummus

A rich and generous dish which never fails to impress guests when served either with cocktails or as an entrée. Minced lamb is a perfectly good option, if desired.

  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 3 garlic cloves 
  • 6 Tbsp cold water  
  • Salt to taste
  • ¾ cup tahini
