my newest toy is a kitchen gadget!
a bday present from my musketeers.
i mentioned back in january how cute this little food processor was while on a shopping trip with m1 who in turn told m2.
they obviously picked up my current penchant for anything yellow.
note on life: if you drop a hint to a girl, they remember – in turn the opposite is true for the other sex.
anyway i 'cooked' last night and made a DELICIOUS homemade hummus.
adapted from this recipe.
1 can chick peas
1/3 cup tahini
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 teaspoon salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
drain and rinse the chick peas.
place all ingredients, except the chick peas in a food processor (with blade).
process until the garlic is well chopped and blended.
add the chick peas and blend until smooth and at desired consistency.
add more salt and cayenne pepper to taste.
cover with plastic wrap and let stand for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to blend.
drizzle with olive oil and serve with pita bread or vegetables.
store in the refrigerate.
i added more tahini and a fair bit more cayenne pepper
(cause i like everything hot hot hot).
i'd ease up on the garlic next time though.
raw garlic is a bit overpowering.
yum at the time, but don't need to taste it 3 hours later.
anyone got any other great recipes to whizz up in my new little machine?
