About Us – For the Love of Hummus
Where to start? We love hummus. In fact, we eat it as often as possible. We thought you would like to know a little bit about us.
So we made a page about it, and about us. And we called it ‘For the Love of Hummus’. You know, trying to be funny…..OK…moving on..
And it is this love of this magical food that we decided to create a page that featured…you guessed it…hummus. Such a glorious food that is healthy and also fills you up, for ages. It can be eaten as a dip, as a meal or as a snack.
We are pretty much obsessed with the H word and find that as vegetarians, we get a lot of our protein from this super food. Popular for centuries, we now bring you a bunch of cool recipes to try for yourself at home. Read more about this rich history here.
People have been eating it for much longer than you think and this post is well worth your time to familiarize yourself with this ancient food.
Hummus always goes down well whenever I serve it up. It’s cheap to make and doesn’t require a good cook to make it taste awesome.
Fresh garlic and fresh lemon make all the difference when it comes to taste and you can taste the fresh flavors of these vegetables in the hummus.
Don’t worry if yours is a bit bland, bust out the lemon and olive oil and don’t forget to sprinkle sumac on top. You’re welcome.
You can make it and keep it in the fridge for a few days in an air tight container, this keeps it nice and fresh. I suggest sprinkling fresh sumac on top each time you serve.
Also make sure the surface is covered in olive oil which also helps keep it fresh.
This way you can serve little bits up at a time in individual bowls this helps keep the dip fresh and free from contamination. We say this because sometimes little hands (and big hands) tend to double dip, which is a sin in our house.
Use it in sandwiches and ditch the mayo. It is a scrumptious dip, a willing and able cooking ingredient…..Hummus has so many uses that we will put up here so we don’t waffle on all day.
