Hummus Among Us

Party food

I’m not much of a hummus maker or eater (gasp!). Although I do enjoy hummus and the many variations that it can inspire, I find that when I make it I’ll eat it once and it will invariably rot in the back of my fridge. It’s definitely a snack food or sandwich spread, which leads us to the fact that I am not a snacker or much of a sandwich maker. Perhaps when I have kids I’ll get into the hummus groove since those creatures eat so much. But I did make the pictured hummus. We’ve got the peanut sesame hummus from ED&BV and it’s unbelievably amazing. Well, I could believe it because you can’t go wrong with the flavor combos. The creepy looking one in the back in an improvised white bean garlic rosemary hummus with tahini, lemon juice and salt. Pretty basic but the roasted garlic gave it a nice smoothness to contrast the woodsy rosemary. Making homemade hummus is easy and fast (if you have canned beans) and is always welcomed at parties. At least the ones that I attend.

    Yummy! I’ve considered making that peanut sesame variety for awhile. Now, I think I’ll have to. Personally, I tend to feel much more comfortable when I have some hummus-like thing in the fridge. Then I don’t have to worry about what I’m going to eat next.
    I should give roasted garlic another chance. It usually leaves me longing for the bite/pungency of the raw sort.

    Peanut Sesame Hummus? Wow that sounds good!
    I’m a Hummus freak myself, LOVE the stuff! Next time you make Falafels Kimmy – make some Hummus too – a match made in heaven so they are.
