Excerpted from The Colorful Family Table by Ilene Godofsky Moreno
Stuffing is by far my favorite holiday food of all time. It’s just so cozy, and the combination of rosemary, thyme, and sage feels like the epitome of fall flavor to me. If you’re also on “Team Stuffing,” this hummus is for you! Whether you spread it on crackers, serve it as a dip for carrots, or eat it by the spoonful, it’s a delicious way to switch up your hummus routine with the season’s favorite flavors.
