the smell of humus
in the drizzling rain
Ah, the drizzle of rain, and perhaps balsamic too? Wonderful haiku.
Fusion Hummus: A simple but fun humous recipe:
A kind of a Mediterranean twist on hummus. It's quick, cheap, and super tasty. It goes great on bread, crackers, and is good even stirred into grilled vegetables. Plus, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and rosemary…
Original recipe makes 4 1/2 cupsChange Servings
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 clove garlic, peeled
2 (15.5 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, drained
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup cold water
salt and pepper to taste
Strip rosemary leaves from stems, discard stems, and place leaves in the bowl of a food processor. Add garlic and pulse until finely chopped. Pour in the garbanzo beans; process until evenly blended.
With food processor running, slowly pour in the olive oil, scraping sides of the bowl as necessary. Pour in balsamic vinegar and process until evenly blended. Taste, and add more vinegar, 1 tablespoon at a time, as desired. Pour in the water and process to make a spreadable consistency. Add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill before serving.
Here's my soup recipe haiku. :-)
