Its the kind of day where I just want to sit by a pool with a drink in one hand and a bowl of hummus and chips and veggies in my other.
Unfortunately I do not have a pool.
The hummus however, I can make that happen. Lemon and dill give hummus a flavour boost and refreshing taste. A different spin on the classic.
Just a quick update on what EC has been up to!:
I have been up to my ears these past few months with some phenomenal opportunities and have not had as much time to work on my blog as I would like, but I am thrilled with everything that has been going on. I can’t even describe how lucky I feel that I am actually doing what I love!
Those of you who follow my facebook may have seen photos of my solo gigs on the Marilyn Denis Show (thank you to my mentor Clare for taking a chance on me), and I have also been working with other agencys doing shows on Cable 14, CKCO, BT Toronto and also developing recipes for companies such as Silk and Natrel! My latest recipes for Natrel will be going live within the next few weeks so stay tuned! I am really excited to share them with you!
That’s all for now!
Lemon Dill HummusPrint Recipe
- 1 can chick peas drained and rinsed (540ml)
- 1/4 cup tahini (sesame butter)
- 2 cloves garlic minced (or 4 cloves roasted garlic)
- zest and juice of 1 (large) lemon or 1 1/2 lemons (~1/3 cup juice- I add a bit more sometimes)
- 2-4 tbsp water (depending on the amount of juice you use- this will help to thin it out)
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- pinch of chili powder (optional)
- 1/2-1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup chopped dill
Combine all the ingredients except the dill in a food processor and process until smooth.
Adjust lemon and spices to taste.
If the hummus is too dry, add more water or lemon to gain a more creamy consistency.
Transfer to a bowl and stir in the chopped dill (or carefully pulse in with the food processor).
Serve with veggies, pita, chips or as a sandwich condiment.
I find that hummus sets up and gets firmer as it sits so don't be afraid to add a bit more liquid. You can also do this later to keep that creamy consistency.
