reveries of a daydream believer

Saturday, July 29, 2006


my mom and i just made some killer hummous.

in a blender we added:

1 whole headed of garlic (peeled)
the juice one one large fresh lemon
1 can of garbanzo beans
1/2 jalapeno (sliced)
~3 tbsp tahini (sesame butter)
salt to taste

...and then just blended for a few minutes, and damn did it turn out goooooood!!! mind you, the whole head of garlic is a bit much. i *looove* garlic, but for those who fear dragon breath, that's definitely an ingredient that can be cut down upon.

now i'm a cooking minimalist and when possible enjoy preparing things from scratch, so i think the next order of business should be figuring out how to actually make tahini!
