So, this hummus recipe has been set for disaster since I first thought I’d make it… I like hummus but I’m generally not a huge fan of beans (or at least my digestive system isn’t); however, my boyfriend loves hummus so I originally set out to make it for his birthday gathering a few weeks ago. I forgot the beans needed to soak overnight so it was a no-go. Then, on Sunday I thought I’d soak them and whip it up on Monday night. I soaked them and rinsed them, but they sat in the fridge until tonight. Then, I put them on to boil while I was online for a school lecture and forgot about them for 2.5 hours! Despite all that, this stuff is actually really good … I think that’s called idiot proof… :)
For the strict raw foodies out there, I did post a great ‘hummus’ recipe back in 2011 after much trial and error (and emotional heartache!) so check that out here.
This recipes is from Pure Vegan, my go-to book of the moment for omni-friendly vegan recipes. It really did remind me how much like cardboard the stuff from the grocery store tastes, so I highly recommend you make the effort to make your own at least once. And it makes heaps so plan to have some friends over to share it.
