Recipe 16: Kristi’s Hummus Recipe

April 3, 2011

Listening to: Amy Grant (song: Baby Baby)

The word recipe is used very lightly in this post.

Kristi makes hummus often because hummus is awesome and overly priced at the store considering it’s mostly chick peas. We soaked the chick peas last night with the intention of making hummus today.

Kristi’s recipe requires chickpeas, tahini, olive oil and a splash of lemon. It’s very easy. Unless of course you soak the chick peas and then find out you’re out of tahini and olive oil. Also instead of a splash of lemon you squeeze a whole lemon in.

After blending the lemon and chickpeas the following happened.

Me: This is not good.

Kristi: Yea. It’s missing tahini and olive oil.

Me: And it wreaks of lemon. What should we add to it? If we keep adding stuff, it will eventually taste good.

Kristi: Totally. Garlic salt. It needs garlic salt.

(Garlic salt added and blended in)

Me: This is not good.

Kristi: Chives?

(Chives added and blended in)

Me: It’s still missing something (note: it was missing tahini and olive oil).

Kristi: Random spices we put in the eggs yesterday?

(Parsley and green onions added in)

Kristi: More garlic salt?

(Garlic salt added and blended in)

Kristi: MORE garlic salt?

(Garlic salt added and blended in)

Kristi: Regular salt?

(Regular salt added and blended in)

Kristi: We should probably stop.

Me: This doesn’t taste good. Let’s go out to lunch.

Lessons learned:

1. Don’t make something you don’t have the ingredients for.

2. If you keep adding stuff to a recipe, it’s not necessarily going to start tasting better.

On to the next one.

    My favorite post yet! Maybe you should add more garlic salt?

    Oh, by the way, do you want an editor? I’m very reliable and always check the dictionary. And let’s face it, you could use a little spell check. ; )

    You’re so fun. I wish I lived next door to you so we could make our famous tomato soup and grilled cheese!
