even in the kitchen!
Before I continue let me just say the kitchen is the last place I would ever want to be.
That is my Hobo's domain. My excuse is that I am a scientist and therefore, I cook all day in the lab. However, in my search for healthy, good tasting food I have retreated into the kitchen.
Today I introduce you to a spicy hummus recipe my friend, Jacque (♥ her), gave me and it is so delish that I just have to share it with you all!
I have prepared it several times but with a not so good blender and it was most frustrating.
Today I will test out the...
First the ingredients...
First I roasted my own pine nuts in an oven set at 400°F for ~5 minutes.
Place the following ingredients in a blender...
2 cans chick peas drained (save the juice)
2 Tbsp tahini
1/2 c fresh lemon juice (I used ~2/3 or 3 lemons)
2 garlic cloves
1 large jalapeño (including seeds)
1/2 c roasted pine nuts
Blend and add chick pea juice to correct consistency
Now the fun part...testing the Ninja.
Looks like the Ninja was up to the task.
I soooo need one of those. This one belongs to my mama.
They always have the neatest toys!
So you see...creativity does not stop when one leaves the studio. It just rolls over to cooking, getting dressed, and even folding clothes! Ha!
Have a good one people!
