Notes from Rouba

  • If some of your guests prefer no bread in their salad, serve it on the side.
  • For a gluten-free option, omit the bread.
  • Bharat or 7-spice blend. You can find it at Middle Eastern grocery stores and various supermarkets. Otherwise, you can substitute with allspice.

Step 1.

Begin by making the hummus. My hummus recipe is as simple as placing all hummus ingredients in a food processor and blending. Get the recipe here.

Step 2.

Cut the bread into 2-3cm squares using kitchen scissors. Heat the oil and fry the bread until golden, then place it on a paper towel to drain. Sprinkle with sumac while still hot so that the sumac sticks onto the bread. Toss to evenly coat the bread.

Step 3.

To toast the chickpeas: drain the water from the chickpea can and rinse. Heat oil in a small frying pan, add chickpeas and spices and cook coating the chickpeas well for 5-7 minutes. Set aside.

Step 4.

Prepare and combine all the salad ingredients. Add olive oil and lemon, season with salt and mix. Add the crispy bread and toss it through.

Step 5.

Spoon hummus across a large serving platter. Top with the fattoush salad. Scatter toasted chickpeas all over. Drizzle with pomegranate molasses.
