You could make lots of different kinds of
hummuses hummi hummus and serve it with your favorite dippers!
I mean….why not?
Remember when we went to Broad Street Cafe awhile ago in Durham and ate edamame hummus and died of happiness?
I done made it at home.
For realzies. The edamame, besides adding lots of great nutrition, offer a really light texture to the hummus that you don’t get with an all-bean version.
I PROMISE you’ll love this. Give it a whirl ASAP!
It can also be ridiculously salty and filled with olive oil so…be careful there.
Hummus is extremely easy to make and I’d ALWAYS recommend making it yourself instead of trusting delis and grocery stores with your fat, salt, calorie, and chemical intake. Hummus lasts a nice long time, so make a double batch and keep it around for dipping veggies – this is a way better alternative than ranch!
Jerusalem Garden Café is where Lindsay took me to dinner on our Asheville Get-A-Way Weekend Extravaganza. This place is a hole-in-the-wall and from the outside it doesn’t look like much. However, once you open the door and step inside you’re transported immediately to the Mediterranean coast. Seriously, the inside décor is perfectly authentic. The ceiling is covered in red flowing fabric and old brass light fixtures. There are throw pillows everywhere and the tables sit low to the ground. It reminded me of a Bedouin tent. The whole place just seemed lavish and true to its roots. It was so authentic that I made sure my wallet was secure in my back pocket, because I just assumed that there would be gypsies.
I think that has something to do with real men not being able to spell, but that’s juts my personal opinion.
To that point, 1. Jay is not a real man, and 2. real men are dumb.
I made this a few nights ago when my bff Heather came over to drink wine (out of bottles. we went high-end) and gossip about every single person we’ve come into contact with for the past 6 or so years in each of our lives.
Things like that can take awhile, and having a healthy, meat-free appetizer full of protein seemed like just the sustenance we needed.
And, Heather and I love hummus. And wine from bottles. Or boxes.
