Happy What I Ate Wednesday everybody!
You know how there are those cravings you get where you just have to have a certain food, then you eat that food and your craving is satisfied?
Well, our craving for hummus is not like that. It is never fully quenched. We may eat it and be temporarily satisfied, but this state is short-lived.
Guaranteed at our next meal we will open up the fridge and see the container of hummus sitting there, and that craving will come right back.
So this week, we are declaring What I Ate Wednesday to be the hummus edition because we are bring you not one, not two, but three new hummus recipes! And you know what? We had two more flavours that we wanted to make, but we ran out of tahini! Tragic, we know.
First up? Spinach hummus!
This recipe was inspired by a trip to the Covent Garden Market here in London, where we tried this flavour from a restaurant there called Nate’s. It was so delicious we knew instantly that we had to recreate it at home.
This stuff was gone in less than two days.
For round two, we went a slightly more traditional route and made roasted garlic hummus:
An entire bulb of roasted garlic went into this lovely golden hummus! Not the kind of stuff you want to order on your first date, but delicious none-the-less!
And finally, a much more non-traditional flavour: Thai Peanut Ginger Lime Hummus!
This was our favourite out of all three! We really can’t say enough about it, except that it was absolutely packed with flavour! It’s Asian meets Middle Eastern meets Mediterranean fusion- all of the best rolled into one!
We will do our best to space these recipes out over the next several days, so you don’t feel too bombarded with hummus recipes, because we do have a few other tasty recipes to share with you! (Despite what it looks like, we actually have been eating more than just hummus for the past week! Although a hummus-diet doesn’t sound so bad to us… ;))
For now, though, we suggest you do two things: First, head on over to visit Jenn at Peas and Crayons to see what all the other WIAW participants have been eating, and second- GO BUY A WHOLE LOT OF CHICKPEAS.
Happy What I Ate Wednesday, everyone! 🙂
