Very Nice! So easy to make the hummus and followed as written, except added a bit of salt and cumin (just a bit), just to bring it out a bit. The Dukka is such a great accompaniment that now that I've had it find it to be an essential partnering. Who would ever think it would be so hard to find hazelnuts (Trader Joe's, is where they live). Great reciipe to serve for when friends come over or just because. Thank you Luvcookn for sharing this keeper. Made it for Billboard Tag.
