Hey guys, welcome back to Dede’s Mediterranean Kitchen. Today, I'm going to make a different version of hummus. It’s hummus with meat. If you want this recipe or any of my other recipes, remember to go to www.DedeMed.com. Remember, if you need these spices, I also sell the spices on my website if you can’t find them at your local grocery store.
Now, what we’re going to start off with is some hummus. I pre-made this hummus; I go the recipe from my hummus recipe. It’s on my website. What I’m going to do is put it into a nice flat dish, then you want to spread it out. Depending on the size of the dish, you may not use all the hummus. So just spread it around in a circular fashion just like that. See, just like that.
Now, after you spread it around, I’d like to add some paprika. If you don’t want to add paprika or you don’t like any spices, you don’t have to add it. I like to add it because it gives the hummus a nice taste. So I'm just going to sprinkle it around. It doesn’t really matter how you sprinkle it because we’re going to put the meat on top, so look at that. I just sprinkled the paprika on top.
What I did here was I browned a half pound of ground beef. I browned it for about ten minutes—seven to ten minutes in a pan. I added half a teaspoon of salt, a fourth teaspoon of ground black pepper, and a fourth teaspoon of 7 spices. 7 spices, you could find on my website. I’m going to sprinkle the browned ground beef over the hummus dish. Just sprinkle it around evenly.
Now, this dish, if you’re having—you and a couple of guests over a cocktail party or something and you don’t want anything too light and you don’t want anything too heavy, it goes great with some fresh pita bread. It’s amazing. It’s very filling. It’s not regular hummus because you have the beef with it. So I sprinkle the meat on top, take a look at that, right there. And I toss in some pine nuts. If you don’t like pie nuts, you can toss some sliced up almonds. I put about a tablespoon of butter in a pan. I put about a half cup of the pine nuts, put them on low to medium heat and just keep mixing them until they’re nice and brown in the color you like. See? Just like. Now, we’re going to sprinkle that on top. If you don’t like nuts, you don’t even have to put any nuts.
When I was a kid, I didn’t line pine nuts, I didn’t like almonds. I didn’t like any of them. As I got older, I acquired a taste for them, so just like that. I have one tablespoon of freshly chopped parsley. I’m going to sprinkle that on top. If you don’t like parsley, you don’t have to add parsley.
Remember, Dede’s Mediterranean Kitchen is to teach you how to make Mediterranean food the way that you like it. Everybody likes different dishes differently. So I sprinkled the parsley, the pine nuts and the meat. See how it’s nice and even? Last finishing touch is some extra virgin olive oil. It adds a great taste. Just generously put some on top, probably about a half cup—let’s add a third cup, just like that. Look at that! It’s nice and shiny and so good! I’m telling you, you’re going to love this. You can put it in a little pita pocket. It’s great! You can cut up the pita to nice little triangles, serve it next to it. It’s great for a cocktail party. It’s great as a side dish if you’re having other main courses. It’s really, really fun. It’s another Mediterranean version of hummus.
Try it out, let me know what you think. Let your friends taste it and join me again for Dede’s Mediterranean Kitchen.
