For real. This is the Best Hummus Recipe EVER!!! It’s so unbelievably good, light, velvety and creamy, they should seriously consider renaming it to something like “Chickpea noIce Cream, or Chickpea Delight maybe, or maybe even 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 325ºF 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… 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! 🙂
