Milk Street Facebook Community member Mary Coughlan of Waltham, Massachusetts, dials up the flavor of mashed potatoes by stirring in hummus. Tahini and za’atar, a Middle Eastern seed, herb and spice blend, bring even more layers of flavor. We call for red pepper hummus in this recipe, but feel free to use any type you like.




Don’t forget to stir the tahini to combine the fat that separates to the top with the solids that settle to the bottom.
