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.

Cajun Lemon Shrimp

Happy Monday Readers,

So shrimp, probably one of my personal favorite foods. I love spicy shrimp, coconut shrimp and fried shrimp, now before I go Forest Gump on you I will cut to this weeks GOT ( Game of Thrones ) dish which was a smoky Cajun seasoned lemon shrimp. Served with toasted baguettes to sop up all the yummy sauce.

Throw down half a stick of salted butter, and dried chives.
Toss in raw, deveined shrimp. add a pinch of salt and pepper. a teaspoon of paprika, teaspoon of cayenne, teaspoon of garlic powder, teaspoon of crushed red pepper, teaspoon of onion powder and teaspoon of dried parsley. Sauté for about 6 min.
Finished product topped with fresh curly parsley and extra lemon wedges. Don’t forget to toast up some French bread so sop up the sauce!
