Kitchen Misadventures: Hummus

July 16, 2012

Of all the new cookbooks I bought, I believe that The Homemade Pantry by Alana Chernila is my favorite so far.  I decided to try one of her recipes this week… and try a very SIMPLE one that could not be messed up.  Hummus!  Or, as she titled it, “The Gift”.

Lesson #1: When the recipe says use a “food processor”, a blender works for improvising.  Usually.  In this case, it was perfect.  A bit messy, and a bit of a pain to clean, but it worked just fine.

Lesson #2: I REALLY need to sign up for the next food styling class at school.  I feel clueless.

All things considered, this recipe was a complete WIN.  It required about 6 ingredients, took a total of 10 minutes to make, and I couldn’t get it from the blender to a bowl quickly enough for my roomies and I to devour it.  Jamie and Shane thought it was delicious… I always like winning over the appetite of a Texan, you know.

OH, and it was completely fun (and frustrating) trying to locate Tahini in our grocery store.  After much searching, I finally found it next to the organic peanut butter… duh.

Do you have a recipe for hummus that you’ve tried?  A favorite way to serve it?  Favorite garnishes for it?  My favorite is sprinkling a little bit of feta on top and eating it with cucumbers.
