Cause that’s type of how I desire this Monday to go down. A enormous bowl of hummus and a enormous part of contemporary naan for dipping.
OKOK, but first, will we speak about this weekend and the method it was the excellent first weekend of June? Things have lastly gotten inexperienced and colourful here. I can’t inform you how refreshing it’s to see colour again. It was a LONG winter with a actually snowy and chilly spring, so the lengthy summer time days, inexperienced grass and blossoming flowers are especially welcomed.
How about you guys? Are you feeling the similar way?
My brother, Brendan who’s these days residing in Portland (he strikes round a bit…) mentioned is was 102 there. WHOA! Why can I now not stay there? That sounds amazing! They floated the river all weekend lengthy and I should say, it appeared quite fun. Were any of you doing the same? I actually have gotten to stay vicariously by means of all of you guys proper now simply due to the fact I am these days in cram mode for the subsequent twenty-eight days…deadlines, deadlines, DEADLINES. It’s slightly stressful, but oddly… I am doing OK. Although, I actually have my moments, like Friday… that was type of rough.
Good information is that there might also just be a pale on the supply up of the tunnel and a holiday with my identify on it ready there for me. Or no less than I wish so, I ought to determine out how one can get a freaking passport, but as soon as I do that, I’ll be nice go.
Alight, extra info on all that soon, but let’s transfer on to this Farmers Market Hummus.
I haven’t all of the time been a hummus person. It actually wasn’t till final year, whilst I began making my very own hummus, that I began to take pleasure in it. Once I began making it myself, I by no means appeared back, it appears I make no less than a batch a week. I love dipping in veggies for a snack, or turning it into and clean weeknight meal, which is type of what I did here.
I don’t realize about you guys, but positioned a bowl of home made hummus in entrance of me with a few naan (or ok, frequently even only a spoon) and I will visit town. A lot of instances on nights whilst I’m now not ravenous for dinner (meaning I ate method too a lot of no matter I was capturing that day), I’ll toss collectively a tough chop of contemporary veggies and or fruits and throw them on a pile of hummus. Add a part of naan or bread, and dinner equals DONE.
Simple, wholesome and tremendous satisfying.
I figured with the hotter weather, longer days and abundance of produce popping up on the farmers markets that it was time I share my “single lady” dinner with you guys.
Obviously here’s simply as vast as an appetizer or snack as it’s for a clean dinner, but I actually experience like all of us have these days whilst simply about all we are able to muster is to throw collectively a massive bowl of hummus.
The recipe begins with my fundamental GO-TO hummus recipes. I’ve perfected it to my liking and use it as a base for all my hummus variations, it’s delish. For my toppings…aka my most favourite part, I go BIG.
Hey, go enormous or go home, right?
It’s alway anything slightly different, however the combo I am displaying you guys proper the following is my favorite. It’s a combination of all of the greatest summer time farmers market produce. I am speaking zucchini, summer time squash, contemporary candy corn, heirloom tomatoes, candy peaches + nectarines, cherries, basil and watercress. Add a handful of toasted, salted seeds and a sprinkle of feta + a drizzle of olive oil and DONE.
Honestly, this would possibly appear like, “ok, duh”, it’s simply hummus. But supply this a try, it’ll be your new favourite for everything from garden parties, to lunches, to speedy snacks… to single woman dinners.
OH and don’t overlook the carbs…I like naan, pita, toasted bread and or pita chips. Obviously.
