MLLA Hummus revisited
So perhaps it is no surprise that the eighth post on my blog was hummus. That is over 1000 posts ago. The problem was that I had recently got a copy of the revised Moosewood Cookbook. I hadn't been sure what version to use on my blog. Now I am a bit more confident and I have experimented with this recipe many times since posting it. It seemed a good time to revisit the recipe. And put up better photos of hummus (actually they don't really make it look that smooth do they?).
Hummus is a classic dip that is a perfect base for adding other vegies. I highly recommend roasted pumpkin, spinach or smoky red pepper variations. We also love a beetroot hummus from the supermarket. I must find a recipe for it sometime. Though no doubt Sylvia will prefer the bought version!
I am sending this to My Legume Love Affair (#52), founded by Susan of the Well Seasoned Cook and hosted by Sra of When My Soup Came Alive this month. And if you are interested in vegan dips, check out Cold and Sleepy Cooks who is blogging dips all October for Vegan MoFo.
