Watch me over on KATV’s Good Afternoon Arkansas where I feature this recipe and the NYE Sparkling Lemon Berry Spritzer!
Now that Christmas is over we look to the next party… New Year’s Eve! I love having people over but always have a certain dilemma. If I go over to the party at 7… I will be hungry at midnight – so what do I take? Festive hummus is exactly what you’re thinking, too, right?
This Beef & Pomegranate Hummus is the solution.
It has plenty of protein to sustain you throughout the night and can be made in small portions or bulk – completely up to you!
I love frozen apps, but you heat them up and they get cold within 20 minutes. I love cold apps like fruit and veggie trays, but they aren’t exactly the epitome of elegance or festiveness.
What I love about this dish is it looks so festive and fun! Perfect for a fancy (or casual) party. I am serving this festive hummus dip with Naan dippers (because they are my absolute favorite for dips).
This year I will be in Israel for New Years, so I made this for Christmas and it was a hit! As I have been researching for my trip, I have been really interested in what types of food to anticipate. Hummus is definitely one of them AND they serve it with breads like Naan and I also learned figs and pomegranates are really popular in Mediterranean foods – so this dish is pretty cultural!
A couple of weeks ago I ran a poll on my Instagram wether to feature beef or lamb with this dish. You can definitely do either – but I decided to feature what you guys want to see – the beef. Lamb would also be delicious if you are into ground lamb!
Ingredients are simple, as always:
- Ground beef seasoned in a greek/mediterranean seasoning blend – I used Cavenders
- Pine Nuts
Assembly is easy – just put everything on top. I promise you will love this dip! It is so delicious and perfect for your New Year’s Eve Party!
Festive Hummus for the win!Print
Beef & Pomegranate Hummus is the way to go when it comes to easy hearty appetizers that will take you minutes to make and have virtually no prep!
- Classic Hummus (for 20 people you need 2×20 ounce packages)
- 1 pound of ground beef seasoned with a mediterranean seasoning (like Cavenders)
- 1/4c pomegranate arils
- 1/4c pine nuts
- Parsley for presentation
- Serve with Naan or Crackers
- Put hummus on the platter – I like to give it a nice swirl so it doesn’t look plopped.
- Layer the cooked ground beef down – I like to layer it diagonal to give some personality.
- Sprinkle with Poms and Pine Nuts
- Top with chopped Parsley.
