To understand the madness behind this hummus you have to understand the ups and downs of my week. Bare with me, it’s story time.

My favorite persian dish is Koo Koo Sabzi, particularly my moms Koo Koo Sabzi. It’s basically an herb frittata with walnuts and currants and usually served with a yogurt sauce.

I mean, you need preservatives to preserve whatever you bottled and to be able to shelf it for a long time, right? WRONG!
