אורז עם קישוא וחומוס בעשבי תיבול

Basmati rice with zucchini and hummus plus herbs is an incredible and easy dish to prepare. You can serve it by itself as an excellent dinner with salad and good tahini and can be served with zucchini, chickpeas and herbs as well as a supplement to a main course. Either way - this is not a good recipe, it is a great recipe!
