HFHF Secret Family Hummus Recipe

For those of you that don’t know, we had a fantastic HFHF Pilgrimage to the Holy Land in early October where we spent several days visiting with the clinicians, staff, and patients of Holy Family Hospital. We’ve been back in the U.S. for a few weeks now, and just as we’re missing our friends at the Hospital, we’re also missing some of our favorite Palestinian foods! Thankfully, within our HFHF family we have – like all families – some secret family recipes. We thought it would be fun to share one with you, since you’re members of the HFHF family too.

So, if you’re looking for a yummy Middle Eastern snack to munch on this weekend – and who isn’t? – look no further. Our Foundation’s delicious hummus recipe comes straight from the Holy Land and is sure to satisfy your snack craving all weekend long. Happy hummus-ing!
