Superbowl is coming up (and rumor has it there have been some major upsets in the playoffs.) But I imagine even the disappointed will still tune in. Either to root for the underdog, or to hopefully watch the team that demoralized their favorite, get kicked to the curb.
I’ll be in the kitchen, not paying attention, every once in a while showing interest in a commercial. Goodness, is it baseball season YET?????
Football fan or not, if you’re having friends over, you must make this. Hummus is loaded with a great sesame and garlic flavor (and in this case, BBQ – oh ya!), high in fiber and protein, and one of the few afternoon snacks I can overindulge in, but doesn’t leave me feeling like I need detox.
beg plead urge you to never buy the pre-made market variety again. It is way too easy to prepare at home, and far less expensive. Plus, the taste is infinitely better.
Makes about 5 cups
Prep time: 5 minutes
• 2 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed, 1/2 cup liquid reserved
• 3 whole cloves garlic
• 1/4 cup tahini
• 1/4 cup lemon juice
• 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
• 4 tablespoons barbecue sauce
• 1 teaspoon Tabasco
• 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
• 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Put all the ingredients, including the reserved chickpea liquid, in a food processor. Puree until smooth and creamy. Serve with pita chips, crackers, or veggies.
