In our decision to try and avoid foods that have chemicals and things we can not pronounce in them, my roommate Mick, and I have gotten a little more creative in the kitchen.
The recent obsession is hummus.
For all hummus begin with:
-1 can of chickpeas
-1 squeezed lemon
-2 garlic cloves
-2 tablespoons tahini
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-a dash of sea salt
-optional- sometimes I add more water if I want it to be smoother. The above recipe creates a very concentrated hummus!
Next: ADD WHATEVER and food process everything for some minutes.
Beet hummus- add 3 roasted beets.
Pumpkin curry hummus- add one cup of pumpkin and one tablespoon of curry
Sweet potato white bean hummus- substitute garbanzos for white beans and add a roasted sweet potato
Mick just made cilantro sun dried tomato! Coconut, spicy black bean, butternut squash? I think you can add anything!
