"If you were on a deserted island and had to choose one food to live on for the rest of your life, what would it be?"
Um, duh. Hummus!
This amazing dip can easily become a meal for me. Hummus on a tortilla. Hummus on toast. Hummus with carrots. Do I sound obsessed?
Once upon a time, when I lived in a major metropolitan area on the coast, I discovered hummus. I decided I could never live anywhere without a steady supply. Geez, I sound like an addict. Nonetheless, many years later, I stand by that decision.
I buy great volumes of it at the store, but then I have occasional epiphanies and realize that's ridiculous because I own a food processor and hummus is incredibly easy to make. So I reach into the depths of my pantry, grab the gizmo and go to town.
Here's what I put in this batch:
This is a variation of the standard recipe. The core ingredients usually are garbanzo beans, oil, tahini, a bit of water, garlic, lemon and salt/pepper. However, you can customize it with whatever extras you are feeling that day.
Add to your food processor. Mix and enjoy copious spoonfuls.
