Sabanekn bil tamatem (spinach stew)
This is one of my favorite comfort foods.   I absolutely adore the density of the hummus alongside the silkiness of the spinach, Popeye would be proud!
1/2 cup hummus (yellow split peas)
1 tbs Crisco
1 medium onion chopped
Allspice, dash
Salt and pepper
1/4 lb ground beef
1 8oz can tomato sauce
2 lb frozen spinach
1 tbs ghee
10 cloves garlic finely minced
1 bunch cilantro finely chopped
Soak hummus in hot water for 30 minutes.
In a pot heat 1 tbsp Crisco, add onion, allspice, salt and pepper, sauté till translucent.   Stir in ground beef continue cook until meat is browned.   Drain hummus and add to pot, stir. 
Cook for 2 minutes on medium then add 1/2 cup water.  Cook for approx another 10 minutes till hummus has softened a bit.  Add more water if needed.
Add tomato sauce cover and simmer for about 30 minutes till hummus is cooked.  Add spinach continue to simmer.
In a separate pan add the ghee, garlic, cilantro a pinch more salt and pepper cook on medium till fragrant and garlic is just pink.  Add to the spinach mixture and more water just to cover, continue cooking on medium low for another 10 minutes.
