Five Things I’ve Learned About Hummus

Ashley posted this over on her blog earlier this week.  We’re totally excited for #hummuschat tonight at 8pm Eastern on the Twitter, and have been thinking all about our hummus experiences.  This is what we’ve learned so far with our Month of Hummus for Vegan MoFo.

1. Hummus has infinite possibilities
It’s been just over two weeks and we’ve made ten different types of hümmi for Hummus Month. And we’ve still got a whole Pinterest board of hummus recipes and inspiration. (Hummus cupcakes? Sounds weird, but I’m so into it!) Hummus month is gonna go strong until the end of September and I’m stoked.

2. Other people really like hummus 
Linz and I have been bogged down in hummus, but we’ve happily shared with our esteemed group of taste testers. Our readers, commenters, Twitter followers and Facebook friends are also really into this hummus domination, which is super cool.

3. Have no fear, hummus is really easy to make

I too have fallen prey to buying hummus in the store with an excuse of “convenience” or lack of time. But really, basic hummus takes about five minutes to make. You could really just go throw some chickpeas, tahini, a couple cloves of garlic, lemon, salt and oil into a food processor, turn on some Robyn and have super delicious, easy peasy hummus in about 5 minutes. (The Robyn is so that you can have a mega fun dance party in your kitchen while your hummus essentially makes itself) In talking about this month of hümmi, I’ve been surprised by the number of people who ask “how do you make hummus?”. It’s the easiest. And you’ll feel awesome and virtuous. Give it a go.

4. Linz and I make great collaborators 
We’re having far too much fun with hummus. We talk, text and tweet about it daily, and our weekly yoga/hummus dates are the best. We’re really silly and giggle about the most ridiculous things, but I think our hümmi recipes are continuing to get better.

5. There is such a thing as too much hummus
Not gonna lie, I was really sick of hummus after week one. We had both made hummus during the week, then collaborated on more hummus on the weekend and sampled one another’s. There was hummus everywhere and it was actually too much. And this coming from a gal who LOVES the stuff! This week was a lot better, with only choice hummus opportunities and eating. It also helps that the recipes we made over the weekend are divine!!

In honor of our hummus love, Linz and I are gonna talk about all things hummus TONIGHT at our #hummuschat this Thursday September 19 at 8pm EST! Some of our favourite people are going to be joining in for this chickpea celebration and we’d love for you to be there too. Follow us on the Twitter (@ashleydtl and @kitchenoperas) and check out the #hummuschat hashtag to join in the fun!

    What a cute hashtag: #hummuschat 🙂 My favorite eatery to get hummus is in Budapest – it’s so good – it’s called Hummus Bar!

        I know what you mean. Sadly I cannot have as much as I want to (I´m mildly intolerant to legumes), and sometimes I miss it more than chocolate. But if I could have as much as I wanted, I don´t think I could ever have enough^^

          Ok we totally need to come up with a non-legume hummus so you can have your fill 🙂

    I agree on all points! Hummus is a perfect party staple and there are so many items you can enjoy with it! 🙂

    Oh, man! I want a hummus buddy. Now I know what my life is lacking…

      Hummus buddies are the best. Especially when they are also yoga buddies and sangria buddies 🙂
