Easy Persian Rice in a Rice Cooker

Easy Persian Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

Admittedly, this doesn't capture the crunch outside of the normal method of making persian rice. But if you are just looking for a fluffy and buttery rice to serve with a stew or tagine, this works wonderfully and is super easy.

Garlic Hummus

Garlic Hummus by Amanda Natividad

Some recipes call for too much tahini. Others try too hard and call for red bell peppers or sun-dried tomatoes. I prefer to keep it simple: chickpeas and tahini, with lots of garlic and lemon juice. Oh, and a dash of olive oil to keep it creamy. Use it as a sandwich spread or dipping sauce.
