Sundried Tomato & Scallion Egg Salad

Now that you know How to Make Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs Every Time, you can make yourself one of my favourite recipes on the planet — Sundried Tomato & Scallion Egg Salad. I have quite a sentimental attachment to this egg salad — it’s a recipe that Mr. KitchenOperas used to serve at his café, where […]

Roasted Walnut & Garlic Hummus

This weekend, Ashley and I skipped our collaborative hummus-making date for a hummus-related field trip: the Toronto Garlic Festival! Because really, what’s hummus without garlic?

Roasted Beet & Garlic Hummus

Pumpkin Chai Hummus

Dill Pickle Hummus

This is my absolute favourite hummus that we have made so far this month. We wanted it to be full of pickle flavour, so we used fresh dill, lots of garlic, and garlicky dill pickles. The resulting flavour is full of delicious dill and takes us back to memories of eating dill pickle potato chips!

Super Smooth Hummus

Ashley is my co-hummus-blogger this month and she’s back to talk about our most ridiculous hummus adventure so far: peeling chickpeas.  Yes, really. I feel like I should have something PROFOUND to say in the post that inspired this whole month. But I don’t. Wait, you’ll see. ==== One day I found Smitten Kitchen’s recipe […]

Hummusalsa (Tomato Hummus)

Along with our huacamole adventure this weekend, Ashley and I made a second Mexican-inspired hummus to top our corn flatbreads (arepas).  We thought that along with a guacamole hummus, we also needed a salsa hummus.  And so Hummusalsa was born! The texture on this hummus is totally different from the huacamole — instead of being […]
