  1. Just tried this for the first time. I was hesitant at first… the thought of dates in hummus . But it was a subtle sweetness. And a subtle curry. Daaaang. Delicious

  2. I make this recipe without the datebook paste because I’d have to buy something not usually on my list and it’s still amazing with the missing ingredient
