Hummus

Hello Readers,

How do you feel about hummus? Personally I find it super delicious, it satisfies my craving for something creamy, and savory in between meals. Most of us use it as a dip for our chips or veggies, but I also like to use it as a spread on sandwiches in place of mayo.

Check out the recipe below the photo.

Classic hummus topped with lemon zest for extra zing..

Recipe

  • 2 Lemons ( zested and juiced)
  • 16 oz can of chickpeas( drained,rinsed)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tbsp olive oil ( or sunflower)
  • 2 large tbsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

1) Drain and rinse canned chickpeas. ( optional step, lightly saute them to deepen flavor)

2) In a blender, add in juice from lemons, chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.

3) Blend to desired consistency. Remove and place into bowl.

4) Gently mix in lemon zest an save some to use as garnish. Serve room temperature.

Thanks for reading, until next time! Cheers!

From a cake to a cookie

Happy Holidays Readers!

It’s Christmas Eve, and if you are like me, you may have committed yourself to making treats for people for the fast approaching festive season and probably do not have time to get to the store and buy ingredients. No problem I’ve got you covered. You know that box of cake mix by either good ol’ Betty crocker or sir Duncan that is sitting in your pantry? Well guess what you can make cookies out of that! Amazing right!

To turn this box into fresh yummy cookies all you need to do is disregard those instructions on the back and use these.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of oil

ANNND blend until the batter is thick and moldable usually about 3 mins on medium speed if you are using a hand blender. Bake at 375 for 6 to 9 min.

Here are red velvet cookies I made using the cake mix.

Good luck readers and again Merry Christmas
