For real. This is so unbelievably good, light, velvety and creamy, they should seriously consider renaming it something like “Chickpea noIce Cream, or Chickpea Pudding maybe, or Yum-mus, why not?
I mean, really, I love this stuff so much, I could very well sit down with a bowl and eat the whole thing by the spoonful! Mind you, that is pretty much what I do… but to make things even tastier, I like to eat mine with pita chips. No, no… not the deep fried kind of chips, simply whole wheat pita breads that I tear to pieces and toast in a 325F oven until they are really dry, crispy and golden brown. I then use those in lieu of a spoon. Best chips and dip in the world, I tell you! Best part is, they make for a healthy snack too!
Whooohoo! Chips and dips that are good for you! How’s that for awesome news!
Not all hummus recipes are created equal though. There are quite a few (thousand) available on the Net, and some of them will have you peel your chickpeas before you process them. Talk about tedious work! I don’t see the point in doing that, really, especially after I’ve tried this beautiful recipe which I found a while back. I’ve only adapted it ever so slightly… I think adding baking soda to the soaking water makes all the difference in the world.
I’m telling you, even if you are not a big Hummus fan, you should really consider giving this recipe a try and tasting this heatlhy dip / sauce again, as if for the first time. My daughter, who didn’t care much for the stuff not so long ago is now completely sold!
Lucky me just made a double batch of this yesterday… Guess what I’ll be having for my afternoon snacks this week!
Oh! I am a happy woman… Life is good!
