I made hummus yesterday. The recipe below was kindly sent to me from Val- thank you muchly. I changed a few things. I was over at Jon and Ryan’s, because they have a food processor and I don’t. They (J&R) had whole cumin seeds as well as ground, so I decided if I was already going to be toasting the sesame seeds, I might as well toast and grind the cumin. I wasn’t really sure how much whole cumin would be in a quarter teaspoon of ground, so I guessed and toasted about half to three-quarters of a teaspoon of seeds, then ground them up in a mortar and pestle. I think it was too much; the hummus turned out VERY cumin-y. Also, I used bottled lemon juice, giving it an extra squirt at the end for some added acidity. That probably made a difference. And an extra clove of garlic.
What I’m trying to do with this hummus is make a clone of the Trader Joe’s Spicy Hummus. This was a good start. I will try again soon.
Also, I have more tomatoes, so I’ll probably be attempting salsa again next week.
