Hummus Nummus

Oh I love hummus. Hummus, hummus, hummus.  I just learned a few things about this original prepared food. First of all, hummus is the Arabic word “chickpea”. And if you go back to Socrates and Plato days, you’ll find that they even wrote about it cause the shit is so damn good. Good for you with all its iron, vitamin C & B6, fiber, protein and potassium. I have to say it’s perfection and it is (and always has been my desert island food – you know that game of “if you were stranded on an island with one thing what would it be?”).

We introduced a new salad today, the Baouleh Baouleh and it came with a creamy hummus dressing. Hummus combined into a salad dressing? I’m in heaven. So here’s the recipe for all you other hummus lovers out there.

2 cup cooked chickpeas
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp tahini
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp mineral salt
2 tbsp olive oil

Blend’er up & enjoy.
