Dates stuffed with hummus – you think it is weird? I don’t know about you, but I just love it – it is nutty and sweet! Unique and very easy to prepare.
It is unbelievable how time flies so fast. I was just thinking of what meals to prepare for Ramadan and now, I am sharing you something for Eid Eats. Eid Eats is an Eid party hosted by the wonderful Henna @ My Ninja Naan and Asiya @ Chocolate and Chillies. It is a yearly party where Muslim bloggers gather together to share something for Eid – whatever they want to serve for their loved ones. It maybe a traditional recipe or not.
I don’t know much the recipes my Mom used to serve for us – I was just happy helping with the chopping and of course, eating. 😀 So for this year’s party, I am taking a different direction and I am sharing something I’d like my family to have – Hummus Stuffed Dates. Yes? No?
I have just accidental discovered this one when I was breaking my fast and I had dates and hummus in front of me. I ate a piece of date and while chewing, I also took a spoonful of hummus. And I was like “Oh! That was good!” I finally stuffed the date with hummus and ate again, just to make sure I was not out of my mind. It was indeed really good! So here I am sharing these lovely stuffed dates.
The dates are simply stuffed with hummus – you can use store-bought or homemade. (I have this smooth hummus if you’d like to check it out.) I cheated here and I used the boxed hummus my boss gave me. The taste was like nutty and sweet – it was amazing! This is best during the same day they are stuffed. I suggest that you stuff only what you want to serve and keep pitted dates ready for stuffing later on.
To all those who are observing Ramadan, I pray that you had a healthy one and advance Eid Mubarak!
