I haven’t been to a state fair in a FOREVER but every year growing up we’d go to one held at our local catholic church. Different than state fairs, they were actually held in the fall to raise money for the school year.

Whether you mix in flavorings or top it with other ingredients, hummus is a blank canvas with so many delicious ways of eating it. This time, I gave it a South Asian twist.
