The specialty menu item created exclusively by the Hoboken-born and raised sisters (Fusun, Gonca, and Arzu Esendemir), features six different flavors of hummus, including a traditional flavor that has been a staple on Flatbread Grill®’s menu since it was founded in 2007. The vegan, Mediterranean family recipe is delicious, healthy, and rich in nutrients, as well as high in fiber. Flatbread Grill®’s Rainbow Hummus consists of plentiful non-GMO, organic ingredients, such as turmeric, ginger, spirulina, and kale. Rainbow Hummus is the first of it’s kind on a restaurant’s menu. It will be available to order online beginning June 12, 2017, which marks the anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting.
In addition to the Rainbow Hummus, Flatbread Grill® will also be inviting members of the LGTBQ community to express their PRIDE by designing artwork inside the store and on the storefront windows.
