Where are all my snackers at?!
Well you are looking at (reading about) one right now. If all my meals consisted of a lil bit of this, a lil bit of that, I would be one happy lady. I feel it solves my indecisiveness.
If I want some chips and salsa, a lil bit of leftover pasta, a couple baby carrots, a few bites of peanut butter cookie cake then all personalities are satisfied…
So during one of my ‘around the world’ snack plates, my love affair with hummus started. Problem is the tiny container from the grocery store is gone in .0293 seconds around our house. I would love to say that I gladly share my hummus with the hubs, but that just doesn’t happen. I seem to hoard it all. Sorry I am not sorry!
Have you ever made hummus? If not, you totally should. It takes only a few ingredients and takes mere seconds to whip together. Leaving you with an ultra creamy, so delicious, and oh so simple hummus. And bonus is that you can control the ingredients that go into it – think of the endless possibilities of flavors in front of you!
I have played around with the ingredients in hummus for quite some time, and this basic recipe I have found to be my favorite. Most hummus uses tahini to help build creaminess but I just don’t really care for the taste of tahini. Honestly, I believe this version tastes way better!
The secret to ultra creamy and silky chickpeas is deskinning the chickpeas. They come with a little skin on the outside that is easily removed by rubbing drained chickpeas between a towel then the skins separate from the chickpea. Not going to lie here, its a bit tedious but I PROMISE it is worth it. From all the time saved from not having to run to the store, you can spend a few minutes deskinning to make the tastiest hummus ever!
With few ingredients – today’s I used sun dried tomatoes in oil, roasted garlic, salt, pepper, water and chickpeas – you may be able to whip up a snack plate all for yourself in the next few minutes!
