Yup, I read it, realized I had all the basic ingredients here, and since I was going to my usual Friday night gathering I had to make it and take it.
So I did.
And tasted it as I was putting the recipe together, and changed a few things around just a tad, mostly for my own taste before serving it and it was well received. Let me climb up on a soapbox here and say, that if you are trying out a new recipe and you taste it, and it’s not quite to your taste, trust your taste buds, they know you, and don’t be afraid of changing the recipe a little. I’ve even been know to make something and take part of it aside to experiment on it. And sometimes the experiments work and sometimes they don’t.
My friends are so good about trying out new things, and passing comments on them.
Italian-style hummus with diced tomatoes
I mixed up the tomatoes with the garlic and added some toasted pine nuts along with the minced rosemary and served them alongside the hummus. And I have to add, this was so good used as a dip with some celery and carrots.
And I made this all with my little 2 cup processor and an immersion blender. I’m saving up for a real, live, 12 cup food processor. But for now my method works just fine.
