My sister had told me about this hummus (by Tribe, I think) that she gets at her grocery store in Pittsburgh that’s a lemon rosemary focaccia hummus…and it’s been dancing around my brain for months now. I finally got down to business and tried lemon hummus. With thyme, because that’s what I had in the fridge (of course).
