(JTA) — “Make Hummus, Not War.”
I’m a sucker for hummus, on EVERYTHING — my eggs, my salads, my burgers, my bagels, my gefilte, my roasted veg and my falafel, of course! Sometimes I schmear it; sometimes I dip it. Sometimes I serve it with tahini and schug, sometimes with za’atar chickpeas and sometimes with roasted red peppers. But most always I serve it with a dusting of sumac or paprika, a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of fresh torn parsley or coriander leaves.

The ebullient, multitalented food blogger/photographer (and Juilliard-trained percussionist) Molly Yeh has been a contributor to the Forward’s food section for years. Her first cookbook, “Molly on the Range,” comes out October 4. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Molly about the book, what she recommends we make from it for the High Holidays and how she expresses her identity — and reaches across cultural boundaries — through food.
