Got Hummus: Sabeur Rouin

 Sabeur Rouin, a.k.a. Dr. Hummus, is a fixture at Valley farmers markets. He's nearly as well known for his wicked sense of humor and constant smile as he is for his hummus, dolmas, and addictive pita chips. In the interest of our well-being, he's reworked some of his favorite family recipes with a focus on more healthful ingredients. Every week, a line of regulars snakes around his booth to stock up on food and catch up with Rouin, who always has a joke and the latest market gossip. Miss a week, and he'll bust you. Rain or shine, the good doctor is always in.

The fictional character I’m most like is Homer Simpson.

One thing I want to do before I die is build a home for the orphans.

The best things about Phoenix are all the farmers markets.

Ksroberts00 might want to comb through your hummus with a fork before eating it!!!

This week I went to the farmers market on 59th and Utopia for the first time. I stopped at a table where a super nice guy was giving out samples. I just recently tasted hummus for the first time but really liked it so I was excited to try other flavors. He let my little girl and I sample a few. He also had a dairy free artichoke dip for my son's special diet. I was so excited! After many samples I decided on the olive tapenade. Tonight I finally got to sit down with my pita chips and try some of it and third yummy bite in I bit down on a huge kalamata olive pit....really? Not so excited anymore. A six dollar tub of hummus could have turned into a three thousand dollar dentist trip... I'm not so excited about hummus anymore:(
