Bursting with flavor.
I’m a hummus girl. I eat it with anything like dipping for celery and carrot sticks or chips, as spread for toast, or just fancy a spoonful whenever! Hummus is one of the easiest to make, and this recipe I am sharing below can be accomplished in five minutes or less. But before we go to the nitty-gritty, I had quite a weird experience while picking up the ingredients for this hummus.
So last week, while at Safeway, all the store’s registers crashed. I was next in line to be checked out when the cashier said that they can only accept cash. Like who brings cash these days, maybe 0.05% of the population? so the lady in front of me abandoned her groceries and produce, some abandoned their carts altogether. I was like, this can’t be happening because I just spent 45 minutes navigating each aisle and with my cart-full of groceries, I can’t just give up. I asked the cashier if there’s another way because I hate to leave, and of course at the back of my mind, I can’t abort this hummus recipe tonight! So the cashier said she’s going to try punch one item, lo! transaction went through so I said to process all my items immediately. Good heavens, everything went smooth-sailing. So the people behind me were happy because register worked again. OMG, it stopped working again for the guy behind me and so with the other shoppers. Very weird isn’t it?
This hummus recipe features olives with stuffed pimiento with a zing, and that’s because of the valencia orange peel seasoning. I brought it to an event the following day and was almost wiped out. You bet my heart was singing deep inside. Get extra creative by topping your hummus with quartered olives and poppy seeds. So here’s how you can recreate this recipe in a heartbeat!
