Here is a little memoir in photos of these last hectic weeks, which I have been meaning to blog about but only had enough energy to post to my twitter.
>>>Lots of working in the shop, visits to the post office (look at that line!!), and little packages ready for the mail.
>>>Chicken noodle soup in bed.
>>>Finally mailed out my Christmas cards!
>>>And then I made some Beetroot Hummus because it's oh, so pretty!
This hummus would complete any Christmas dinner table, or Christmas appetizer spread. It is also very mild because it is made without the traditional tahini (though I missed that and will probably add it next time). Did I mention that it takes 5 minutes to make?
Here's what you need and what you do.
One large beet, cooked (I chopped it up and microwaved it in water for 2 minutes, easy.)
One can chickpeas
Four tablespoons lemon juice
Two garlic cloves
Three Tablespoons olive oil
Put it all into your food processor and start pushing buttons! By the time you're tired of switching from the chop button to the puree button, the hummus will be ready for eating! Serve with veggies and crackers for a pretty and pretty healthy snack!
Check out the recipe I used (and tweaked) here.
Well, I hope you're all healthy and ready for some Christmas!
