Hummus is one of my favorite appetizers for hosting friends and family during the busy holiday season. Versatile, crowd-pleasing, and full of fresh flavors – it is always a hit.

As we head through the year I love taking my traditional hummus platter and turning it into a warm and comforting dish. After seeing how popular my Mexican Baked Hummus Dip was with all of you, I knew it was time to share another hot dip: Warm Hummus with Lamb and Pomegranate.

By placing the hot lamb directly from the pan onto the platter of hummus, the dip slowly warms up allowing all of the flavors to truly open up. For a burst of sweetness and a crunchy texture, I sprinkle pomegranate seeds and fresh parsley all over the platter before serving.

The end result? A warm Lebanese hummus dip that no one can resist. As an added bonus, it just so happens to be naturally gluten free, low carb and high protein.
