Hummus III

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Delicious! I'd never made hummus before but we eat a LOT of it, so I decided to try this recipe. I made it pretty much as is and it was so much better than store-bought hummus. It's also MUCH cheaper (the tahini is costly, but a little goes a long way and you can make many batches with one jar). The only thing I did differently is add a decent amount of the juice from the garbanzo beans and a little more lemon juice to make it smoother and not as dry. What a great base - I plan to make it again and play around with it by adding different ingredients such as artichoke, spinach, roasted red peppers or olives. What fun!

Spicy Red Bell Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Great soup. I was a little disappointed that more of the sweet red bell pepper flavor did not come through, but this was partly my fault. The soup tasted strongly of thyme, which is not bad, but it overwhelmed the other flavors. The mistake made (I think): I had no fresh thyme in my garden and in trying to be cost-effective, I used ground thyme. Seeing as dried spices are usually much stronger, I probably should have halved this. I liked the soup enough that I will try it again and modify. And to temper the heat, I used just a dash of cayenne and red pepper flakes. It was still hot, but enjoyably so. Other modifications: I used some oregano and celery salt to round out the flavor a little after I discovered it tasted so strongly of thyme.
