I was lucky enough to be introduced to the wonder of the CSA a few years back and now each year as the weather warms, my family anxiously waits for the vegetable deliveries to begin. This year we joined Good Earth Farm and we received our 3rd delivery last night and it was a whole bunch of awesome, again! Our new CSA has several additional options like bread and mushrooms, so we're also splitting a fruit share with a friend. This week was the strawberry delivery and I am relieved to be sharing, because we received 7 quarts of delicious strawberries. I'm thinking of making a strawberry pico de gallo this weekend and maybe some jam and freezing the rest. Yum!
I made another a batch of hummus this week and wrote the recipe down since there were requests after my last batch, so here it is! I make a big batch, feel free to cut it in half if you want less.
Alisa The Yarnista’s Hummus
- 4 cups chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
- 2-4 garlic cloves (base on how much you love garlic)
- 1/2 cup Tahnini
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 2 tbs water or juice from beans
Add all ingredients EXCEPT chickpeas and water/bean juice to food processor and mix until coarsely pureed. Add chickpeas and blend to desired consistency - add water/bean juice as necessary. Enjoy with veggies, pretzels, on bread and spread on sandwiches!
I'm freezing some of this batch to see how it holds up. I think it will be okay since the beans hold up in the freezer after I cook them in the crock pot, but we'll see. Have you frozen hummus or do you have a hummus recipe to share?
