Meze: Hummus, Bazargan and Za'atar in olive oil



This is the perfect kind of meal for a hot (not quite summer) night. No need for turning on the stove. I prepared the hummus and bazargan (Syrian bulgur relish) this morning so they were ready to eat when I came home from work. I topped the relish and za'atar dip with fresh tomato and onions. I had whole wheat pita and sesame crackers for dipping. The bazargan is a recipe from 'Olive Trees and Honey'. It is a bulgur relish that is flavored with olive oil, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, cumin, tomato and cayenne. There are chopped walnuts in it and fresh cilantro (didn't have parsley) as well.


My salad from lunch. Just green leaf, red peppers, walnuts with an olive oil/lemon juice dressing

What a smart idea! It really is a perfect dinner for a very hot day. I didn't turn on my stove either. It's so funny that I had hummus for dinner too but a store bought one, ha ha ha, I'm too lazy today. :)

Hi, me again. I forgot to ask where you bought pomegranate molasses. It sounds so delicious.

I get pomegranate molasses at a local market that sells ethnic foods. If you can't find it you can make you own out of pomegranate juice.

Wow, that meze looks perfect. I love meals like that. It's only in the mid-forties here, though, so I'm still eating soup!

That looks delicious! Like something you'd order from a restaurant.
