  • Prepare the Classic Hummus according to directions or purchase hummus in the store and spread out on a platter in a thin layer.
  • Meanwhile, heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium high head and add ground lamb. Begin breaking down with a wooden spoon into bite sized pieces. Sprinkle with All-Purpose Lebanese Spice Blend and continue cooking until lamb is browned and cooked through.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove hot lamb and place directly onto the hummus platter. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds as well as parsley and/or olive oil if you wish. Serve with pita bread.
