Hummus Hiatus

It has been 33 days since we last posted a hummus recipe.  33 days!  We think that’s a record for us!  Some of you were probably starting to wonder if we were okay!

Well, you needn’t worry yourselves- we are just fine, and we’ve been eating plenty of hummus (we’ve just been going back to the basics lately- now there’s a throw-back for ya!)

But in case you were all starting to feel hummus-deprived, we are back after our hummus hiatus with another delicious rendition of our favourite dip the best food ever.

This time around we looked Eastward for some inspiration and made a Curried Hummus!  We suppose that makes it more middle-eastward, but we won’t get too picky about details.

But seriously, our hats go off to the people of the Middle East!  Boy do they know how to cook!  We don’t even know if they have a word for “bland” in their language, because they probably never use it- everything they make has a positively magical blend of spices that makes every single one of their dishes burst with flavour!

And that is precisely what we were going for with this hummus- bold and spicy with enough flavour to send your taste buds into over-drive.

And you know what?

We think we nailed it 🙂

Curried Hummus

DSCN4943

Total Time: 10 min
Makes: approx. 2 cups

Ingredients:

2 c. cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
1 tsp honey
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp paprika
1 tsp red curry paste
1/4 tsp salt
pepper, to taste
Hot pepper flakes, to taste

Directions:

Add all ingredients to a food processor or a high-powered blender and process until smooth.  Add up to 1/4 cup extra water if it is too thick.  (Tip- this hummus tastes even better the next day, so if you’re making it for a party, we recommend putting it together the day before)

Banana Waffles

Remember way-back-when, when we vowed to give waffles their due respect?

And after that we made 5 more pancake recipes. (Feel free to click on those links ;))

And have you seen a single waffle recipe? No, no you have not.

But we’re trying to change, really, we are!

Starting with these Banana Waffles!

Make that ultra-fluffy-super-crispy Banana cornmeal waffles!  Seriously, with these on file, waffles have officially made their way on to our regular breakfast rotation!

Think of these as the martyrs of breakfast waffles, paving the way for future waffle recipes!

And we promise, there will be more where this one came from 🙂

Banana Waffles

DSCN4796

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

2/3 c. whole wheat flour
2 tbsp cornmeal
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 banana, mashed
1 egg, whisked
2/3 c. + 1 tbsp milk of choice
1 tbsp jam (we used strawberry)
1 tsp lemon juice

Directions:

In a medium-sized bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just incorporated.  Spoon the batter over your waffle iron and close the lid.  Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until waffles are firm and slightly crispy.  If you’d like an extra-crispy waffle, pop them in the toaster for a couple minutes once they’er done cooking (homemade toaster waffles FTW!)
