If I had to stay home with just one food for an undefined amount of time…
oh wow… that’s happening. Well hopefully not with a limit of just one food! But, if that were the case I’d choose hummus!
Put that on everything…toast, rice, soup, nachos, potatoes, burritos, wraps, tacos, eat it from a dish, eat it how you wish!
Basic hummus is a must have home recipe. It’s versatile and health supportive.
What is it? Hummus is a spread made from chickpeas, tahini (ground sesame seeds), lemon juice, garlic, and, traditionally, oil. But, you can skip that and use water or liquid from your can of chickpeas (also known as aquafaba) instead. As I do in all my hummus recipes!
Why is this a basic, must-have recipe? Because store-bought hummus is full of crap (canola oil, preservatives, etc) and doesn’t taste anywhere near as good as homemade. And because hummus is a chameleon – it can make an appearance at any meal, breakfast through night-time snack. It’s also nutritious! It provides a ton of protein, fiber, healthy fats and is filling and satisfying.
