Amazing Green Hummus

I hate reading… well, I actually love reading. Once I start, I can’t stop. I usually don’t like beginning a book because I know once I get into a good story I will not stop until I read the entire book… or series. My favourite kind of novel is good fiction with some sort of dystopia. A novel where someone is stickin’ it to “The Man”!

Reading also makes me want to write a book. I don’t know where I would start, but I think it would be fun. I went to university for acting about 3 years ago and got kicked out. (That’s another story for another day.) However, right before they gave me the boot, one of my instructors told me I should try writing. That way I could still tell a story but no one would have to see me. (She was a real gem.)

I haven’t thought about that conversation in ages. I didn’t even want to pick up a pen for a long time after. I felt that if I wrote anything I would be proving her right. So, I can’t be a performer and a writer? That’s just silly! Who says I can only do one thing? Well she does… but what does she know!

I think part of starting this blog was to see if I could form coherent thoughts in some sort of structure that someone would want to read. Or, you know, I could read them back to myself. I mean, I am no Lois Lowry or C. S. Lewis, but hey, who knows, one day people might be interested in what I have to say!

Well, now that I’ve rambled about something that has nothing to do with food, let’s get back to this delicious recipe! I use hummus in all kinds of ways. It’s not just for dipping veggies in. I put it in my rice dishes, I use it in pasta salads and stir-frys, buddha bowls… the possibilities are endless. This hummus has a wonderful taste and once you let it sit in the fridge overnight the flavours really pop!

You gotta love parsley to fully appreciate this recipe. I mean, wow! The parsley really hits you, especially when it is freshly made. I really like that, but we are all different, so if you think you would prefer less or no parsley at all, that’s fine. It will still taste amazing and will be bright green!

I find that it is best eaten the day after it is made. It allows time for all the flavours to blend. Make it the night before for a great snack!

Recipe Notes
  1. In your food processor, put in lemon juice, tahini, onion and garlic. Blend on high until well combined.
  2. Then add everything else except the chickpeas. Process the ingredients making sure the mixture is smooth.
  3. Lastly, add the chickpeas and process one more time. Add a tablespoon of water or oil until you have reached you desired consistency. I like mine really smooth.
  4. Store in an airtight container. It is best served the next day when the spices have had a chance to really show their flavour.
