i love hummus


i make my own and it doesn't look like this :) i don't care for lemon juice in mine. plenty of garlic and curry with black olives- and mine is chunkier rather than creamier. i think everyone has their own hummus recipe- i know i saw dozens when i googled it. my next endeavor is to learn how to make the pita bread to go with it. :) can you tell i am eating? so good.



hummus- Middle Eastern Cookery. a paste or dip made of chickpeas mashed with oil, garlic, lemon juice, and tahini and usually eaten with pita.

what exactly is hummus

Sarah said...

I like it too. Last time I had some, I used some wheat thins. I think it would be excellent with pita though. It's something I rarely eat, but enjoy when I do.

c-dell, hummus is basically a dip made out of chick peas and various seasonings.

HA! HA! Not everyone Betmo. I've heard of it, but never have eaten it. I don't know what curry is. :)

Chuck said...

Uh-oh Sarah. I just read your posts and although I've heard the term before, I don't know what chick peas are either. :)

Sarah said...

A chickpea comes from a plant called a "legume" and can be eaten. Better known as garbanzos.

I make a garbanzo bean soup that is out of this world. It's basically just a veg soup, but I put some of the beans in the blender to make it a creamier, yummy soup. I bet you'd like that one, too.

I have to confess... hummus always scared me! I finally tried it about 6 months ago and i LOVE it.

I must try making my own someday.

I've heard of it but never tried it. Now I'm thinking about food.

All is perfectly true besides the claim that hummus is a dip. It's not - it's the main course.
