Late afternoon yesterday, the family all went golfing (I am not into golfing, but the rest of the family is so I stayed back). I knew they would be hungry when they got back to the cottage around 8pm so I decided to try this recipe that I saw in a yoga magazine (Yoga at Home, from the editors of Yoga Journal).
I never thought to bake hummus! But let me tell ya, it was good!!!
Here is my spin on the recipe:
1 batch of hummus (see recipe below) - you could also use store bought
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped in small pieces
1/2 cup katamata olives, chopped in small pieces
1/2 cup of crumbled feta
1 tbsp of olive oil
Spread hummus evenly in an oven safe dish. Sprinkle with olives, tomatoes and feta, being sure that you cover the surface evenly.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Bake @ 350F for 15-20 minutes.
Serve with whole grain crackers (I used Mary's Organic Crackers)
Here is the platter that I had ready for the golfers! Sheep's milk cheese, organic brie, grape tomatoes and Mary's Organic Crackers
Homemade Classic Hummus
1 can of chickpeas (I use Eden Organic)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 small clove of garlic
1/2 the zest from 1 lemon
1/2 the juice of 1 lemon
2 heaping tbsp of tahini
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor, except tahini. When well blended, add the tahini and adjust salt and pepper to your liking. Pulse a few times to mix and viola!!
Easy peasy (as my mother would say) and your done!!
