Classic hummus with toasted pine nuts.

From the minute I could reach the kitchen counter, I have been watching the women in my family prepare traditional Middle Eastern dishes. This recipe is in honor of those women who taught me the art of balancing lemon and garlic to maximize flavor. My family recipe for Classic Hummus with Toasted Pine Nuts is quite simple, but the end result is nothing you will find at a store. It is all about the garnish, my friends.

Secret of the Toasted Pine Nut

Have you ever eaten toasted pine nuts? By taking a few minutes to toast nuts in a dry skillet or bake in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes, you will experience a warm, buttery aroma that is second to none. Toasting helps release the natural oils in the nuts which gives them a deep, rich flavor that will make any dish stand out, but it especially enhances the flavor of hummus!

You can serve hummus with all sorts of things, but my favorites are pita bread or chips, veggies, pretzels, or making deviled eggs with it!

How do you store toasted pine nuts?

Keep them at room temperature in an airtight container, but they do go rancid quicker than regular pine nuts, so make sure you use them within a week.
