Are any of you familiar with Chris Young? I’m slightly obsessed especially after I went and saw him with Jason Aldean in September. But his new single is phenomenal and I could probably listen to it over and over. Ok, I am listening to it over and over again. Go listen to it. Now.
So while I was listening to Chris’ (yes, we’re close like that) album on repeat, I made some hummus.
I go through phases with hummus. I want to eat it with everything and on everything for a good 2-3 weeks and then I let the container get pushed to the back of the fridge until I find it one December morning only to find that it went bad in October…
Homemade hummus is definitely the way to go though. You can adjust it to your flavor and all you do is mix and eat. Can’t get any better than that!
Here’s what you need:
I ended up adding in a generous drizzle of olive oil and about half a sprig of rosemary just to give it some extra flavor. And don’t be alarmed, I didn’t use the entire head of garlic. Just 4 cloves.
Garlic and Rosemary Hummus
- 2 cans of garbanzo beans, drained
- juice of 1 lemon
- 4 cloves of garlic, pressed
- olive oil
- half sprig of rosemary
- salt to taste
Combine ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine. Adjust flavors as necessary according to taste. You can serve immediately but it tastes better after having some time for the flavors to meld so I suggest putting it in the fridge for about an hour.
I had originally planned on just enjoying this with some pita crisps but then the light bulb came on: Make a pita pizza! So I did. It was heavenly.
I already had the pita, roasted red peppers, and goat cheese on hand so this was super quick and easy to throw together. I used the hummus as the “sauce”, layered on my cheese and then added on my peppers. A quick toast in the toaster oven and this baby was ready to eat!
Now I need to go get more pita bread so I can eat the heck outta these things this weekend!
Well, I’m off to get ready for some holiday gatherings this evening (more to come on that later). Have a happy Saturday! 😀
