What do you think of when youย eat Hummus?
When I eat hummus, I think of my childhood.
When we lived in Turkey, my mom would get little me a bowl of hummusย and a big chunk of bread. I would then, very meticulously, tear off a pieceย of bread, dip it gently into my hummus, and proceed to devour it. ๐ I was very particular in the way I did it. ๐
This is my and my family’s favorite hummus.ย ๐ I always like homemade better than any hummus from the store. There’s something about making it yourself–the love you put into it– thatย just makes it taste better! ๐
Afterย I made this, I stuck it in the fridge for later.
I had some for lunch.
As I am finishing myย lunch, my dad walks in and says, “What’s this?”
“Where’d you get it?”
“I made it.”
He tastes it….”THIS IS SO GOOD!!! Why didn’t I know you had some?!”
“I just made it.”
“Well, next time, make sure I know about it. ;)”
Haha, I love you Daddy. ๐
Kat’s YUBBYย DUBBYย Hummus!
notes: Vegan, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Sugar Free, and absolutely DELICIOUS! ๐ I love to eat it with fresh vegetables, whole-grain bread, whole-grain flat-outs, etc! ๐
- 3 cups Chickpeas, prepared and rinsed
- 1/4 cup Tahini
- 1 TB Olive oil
- 2 1/2 TB lemon juice
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 tsp salt
- pinch of pepper
- 1/2 tsp red cayenne pepper (optional, but gives it a nice KICK!)
Add all ingredients, except the chickpeas, into your blenderย (I used my trusty BlendTec).
Blend for about 5 seconds, or until it is all combined.
Add the chickpeas.
Blend on high until it’s creamy (about 10-15 seconds). You may have to scrape the sides a couple of times.
Tear off a piece of bread, dip it in, and ENJOY! ๐
Or store it in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for later. I like to eat it after it has chilled in the fridge for a little while.
How do you like to eat hummus? I REALLY like it with my Homemade Bread!
What food brings back memories for you?ย Hummus for me!
What do you call your parents? I have called my parents Mommy and Daddy since my childhood, and that’s what I still call them. ๐ While we lived in England (I was a little girl), I even corrected one of my teachers on her spelling. She had written M-U-M on the board. I raised my hand and said “That’s not how you spell it!” She then responded, “Well then, how do you spell it?ย :)”ย I thenย strutted up toย theย board and wrote the following: M-O-M-M-Y. ๐ She has been and will forever be M-O-M-M-Y to me. ๐
