Hummm Hummus?

i admit, i don’t think i’ve ever tried hummus before. not really… i’m pretty sure i’ve taken at least one bite, but i expected it to be gross, therefore i thought it was, and i remember it as being gross. or maybe the specific type i tried really was gross? regardless, i’ve always had this preconceived notion in my brain that hummus was icky.

yesterday i took the kids up to see their grandma, and in a non-vegan household, the vegan-eats are few- especially in a home that actually produces a dozen of farm-fresh eggs each day. (can you say Hobby Farm?)

when lunch time came around, the kids enjoyed grilled cheese sandwiches on non-vegan bread, and i was left saying “oh, i’m fine thanks”. then my mother in law broke out a tub of hummus and some pita chips. i gave it a try (okay, i wasn’t okay. i was starving.) and fell in love. it was wholly unexpected. the stuff i tried was Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, and if you know me at all, you know i hate bell peppers.

my new mission is to create hummus. i’m missing a couple key ingredients (mainly Tahini) but i plan on hitting up the grocery store for exciting things like fresh dill, lemon and peppers to mix into a couple different attempts at hummus. i already have the chickpeas and the carrots ready for dipping.

i’ll let you know how it goes.
