roasted garlic hummus

Chick peas. Roasted garlic. Olive oil. Isn’t is amazing how just a few ingredients transform themselves?

If you never had hummus- you should try it, it’s booty-friendly, versatile and cheap to make. The kind they sell by the deli costs around $2.99. I made double the amount for about $1.12. Being thrifty is fun. Speaking of thrifty- I made 8 breakfast sandwiches yesterday, too. I should have used my own biscuit dough, though. I tried to use that other stuff-you know, the kind that scares the heck out of  you when you open it? Anything that startles you before you bake it should be a sign.  Like snakes. I love snakes, but they always startle the &$%# out of me when I see them in the yard…I don’t think I would eat one. Snakes and canned biscuits. Hmmm.

Hummus. Well, first the garlic- roasted garlic takes on a sweet, nutty flavor after it’s roasted, and it’s less pungent, too. Vampire and date night friendly.

To roast it- wrap a whole bulb in foil and bake it at 350 for 30 minutes. I used to toaster oven. It’s summer.

place 2 cloves it in a food processor or blender and ad 1 can of canned chick peas, drained but save 2 tbs of the liquid that they were in.

Add 2 tbs olive oil, 1 tbs lemon juice and 1/2 tsp kosher salt. Pulse or blend until it looks like this:

Classic hummus contains sesame tahini-but that wasn’t something I had in my pantry at the time. Oh well.

You can adjust the texture with the reserved liquid, if you prefer it thinner or thicker…

I sprinkled some dill on top- you can do chives, paprika, pepper…really any savory spice works with this.

So- it’s biscuit day today. Still working on that 25lbs of flour I bought.

I also need to start to tackle the herb n veggie garden. I let it go over the summer…it looks like a weedy lunar landscape.

Anyone wanna help?

HEY! I got a scanner!!!

Woo Hoo! Now I can also start to work on “Oranges and Alligators” more. Aren’t you excited?!

I know, probably more excited about the biscuits. It’s okay. I understand. 😉
