Although we most often think of hummus as a vegetarian-based appetizer, a recipe of ground beef served over hummus is not new, and is actually quite a popular mezze on the Middle Eastern table. The warm, spiced beef with the creamy hummus creates a wonderful taste and texture, and is perfect for scooping up with toasted bread. This dish can become a favorite item during Ramadan.



  1. Hummus:

    • Place chickpeas, olive oil, Knorr Lime Seasoning, water, garlic and tahini into a food processor.
    • Puree until completely smooth. Add any additional seasoning, if needed. Scoop into a bowl and place in the refrigerator while you make the beef.
    • Divide into 3 equal portions.
  2. Shawarma:

    • Marinade the beef slices with oil and Arabic spices mix.
    • On a medium heat grill, place the beef slices.
    • Add the beef shawarma on top of the prepared Hummus and serve with Balady Bread and a fresh green salad.
  3. Chef’s Tip:

    • This recipe is delicious as is but is also the ideal dish for adding toppings and garnishes with various flavors and textures. Grilled eggplant would also be nice or add a handful of toasted pine nuts, a drizzle of fruity olive oil, a spoonful of crumbled feta cheese, and some chopped fresh mint.
