Sorta A Hummus

I haven’t been good lately concerning my nutrition. Not only do I feel it in my level of energy, but also in my not so clear anymore skin and in my jeans. As all these points have a negative effect on how I feel about myself, I decided it’s time to start to make an effort again.

Today worked out pretty good so far: For breakfast I’ve had scrambled egg with spinach, onions, and turkey breast plus a toast with a teeny tiny amount of vegan chocolate spread (Chocolinette from France, it’s really good!!!) on it. Yup – I admit it, I do have a sweet tooth and if it is tended to eeeeevery day with a little amount of sweets it won’t make me eat an entire cake. Alone. In one day.

As I was crafting all day long – christmas presents need to be finished and I haven’t had time in a while so I really really missed it – I had a very late breakfast and just a cup of coffee in between. I know! Not healthy after all…But after my daily deed was done, I still had lots of energy left (this is what crafting and finishing projects does to me – and maybe also thinking about a special someone – YAY! I’ve finished a lovely doll for my friend Deb in the UK – check out the doll-tutorial here)

No chickpeas in da house!

So I hopped into the kitchen and checked the pantry and fridge. I started making sweet potato fries and roasted pumpkin with haloumi cheese and decided this combo might turn out juuuuust a litle bit dry…and we wouldn’t want that, right? I figured a hummus is the healthy choice to make, started prepping and couldn’t find a single can of chickpeas in my massive stash. In my mind I was screaming: Whaaaaaat? *ok, maybe there was a little screaming out loud. I am that kind of person who talks constantly with herself – I enjoy my own company, is all* How could that even happen? Honestly, I don’t have a clue! But I did find several cans of giant white beans. Duh! I figured…

This calls for some creativity and bravery!

I simply swapped the chickpeas from my favorite recipe with the giant white beans and added dried tomatoes *I will not do this again…yuk, those bits and pieces, not my taste*. Let me tell you, a little bravery every once in a while turns out yum!

Why don’t you give it a try, too?

Throw all these things into a food processor, switch it on and tadaaaaaa a Hummus, sort of:

  • 1 can great white beans (net drained weight 240 g)
  • 2 dried tomatoes
  • 1 glove of fresh garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini (this is a sesame paste)
  • 1 lemon (the juice of it)
