hummus ....and broccoli ...
Look who is eying the hummus ....the yummy hummus ... mmmm....
Hummus should be the friend of all health conscious people , it has all the goodness of extra virgin olive oil , sesame and garbanzo beans . I always keep a big bowlful of boiled garbanzo beans aside whenever i make chhole . The frozen or refrigerated garbanzo beans come in handy for a healthy quick breakfast of chickpea chaat or a veggie salad with bread kinda meal... I love the garlicky hummus and the buttery texture makes it sure that you don't miss the cheese or butter in your meals/breakfast.
For the ingredients ratio ......
a cup of boiled chickpeas , 1 tbsp of sesame seeds , 2 cloves or more of garlic , lemon juice and salt to taste and generous amounts of olive oil and red chilly flakes....as much as you want of anything as the recipe can be customized to your own taste...
A rich and creamy dressing , a healthy alternative to the usual high trans fat ready made dressings....steamed green beans are another favorite of mine with the freshly made hummus....Arvind likes it with boiled or roasted potatoes too.... whatever you like with hummus , but hummus is the first thing to start liking if you have not yet started with it....many of my real life friends should convert to hummus.....for the daily bread or for the salads...the real life friends are the ones for whom this post is directed to...
are you listening??
Are you soaking the chickpeas now....make it for your salads if you have disliked it with the bread and you will find it awesome... Even with breads it is better with some steamed vegetables .......the way i like....
Hummus, I simply love this, I still remember when one of my friends introduced me to the Lebanese/Mediterranean food, hummus, falafel & pita bread with pickled veggies. I love chhole, but I feel the chickpeas flavour is enhanced like this :) In short, its finger licking good, I really feel like dipping my finger in the bowl and licking it :-P One more thing added "TO-COOK" list :-)ReplyDelete
