Just kind of scrambling...

I made hummus today. I think it came out pretty well and Kip ate quite a bit of it, so I think I'll be using this recipe again.

Just to have it here for myself in case the link dies:

1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup lemon juice
Process until smooth and light colored, about a minute

2 Tbs olive oil
1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas (add half at a time and process for a minute after each half)
1 1/2 cloves garlic, minced (process for a minute) (this was originally 1 clove garlic)
1/2 tsp cumin
About 1/2 tsp salt (process for a minute)

The new food processor is pretty impressive. I turn it on and the chickpeas just seem to dissolve. Kind of mesmerizing, really.

I cooked up the chickpeas for it yesterday, and now I have a lot of extra chickpeas, and the hummus I made fed me and Kip for dinner and looks like it will be at least one more meal.

I guess if the chickpeas go bad before I use them up, well, they weren't very expensive and I will just throw them out. Or I could go over and ask the neighbors if hummus is a thing they like. If so, I could make a bunch more hummus and use up the chickpeas. That's not a bad plan, actually.

And it is healthy. More or less. (Well, mostly more, actually. No animal fats, plenty of fiber, the lemon juice will have vitamin C... I dub this "healthy" for food purposes.)

I don't know anything about hummus (other than how to eat it) but this sounds pretty tasty.

Hummus may be reasonably healthy but that's not why I eat it.
The "healthy" part is a bonus :-). I wouldn't eat it if I didn't like it.

I've always liked chickpeas but I would probably not have liked hummus if I'd encountered it as a kid, since my tolerance for garlic was pretty low.
