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.

I arrived in Phoenix on a cruise ship!

When I’m stuck in traffic, I thank God I'm in America.
