Hummus made simple and cheap

2 cans Garbanzo Beans AKA Chickpeas. Rinsed well!!!

Juice of about a half a Lemon or to your taste

a clove or more of Garlic finely minced or use the minced in the jar or the Garlic in a tube and really if push gets to shove use granulated or powder.Just be careful after it sits for a while it tends to get spicy.

a touch of Sesame Oil or about a spoonful of Tahini (Sesame paste). To taste.

Place all the ingredients into a Food-processor, a Blender or even use a Potato masher. Whatever works for you.

Your done. It stores in an airtight container I’d say for about a week.

Cost for 24 ounces of Hummus maybe $4. Cost at a Grocer 10 ounces on sale $4

Time to prepare less than 10 minutes.

Til next time……..enjoy:)

Heat a small Skillet to a low heat with about a 1/2 Tablespoon of high-quality Butter once melted.  Add 1 sliced Onion. Want to make more use a bigger Skillet, more Butter and Onions. Technique is the same.

Gently toss/stir in the Onion with the Butter. Ignore for a bit. repeat til done to your liking 🙂

Til next time……Enjoy 🙂

air. I made juice this morning and I had leftover Orange Peels. I see a simmer pot in my future.

You can get all fancy and scentful playing in your Fridge and Spice Cabinet. I just enjoy the simplicity of a citrus simmer pot. Maybe, add some Cinnamon Sticks, Cloves, or a favorite aromatic. Simmer on low and refill with water as needed.

Til next time…..just a share 🙂

We all wanted something different for Dinner the other night. I wanted a Sweet Potato/Yam. My Guy wasn’t feeling good. So, he wanted Ramen (of course). My Kid found some packaged Crescent Rolls, Ham and Cheddar in the fridge.

image
This it he came up with. He rolled the package of Crescent Rolls out and split it into 2. Layered the Ham and Cheese. Rolled them up and baked to the Crescent Roll instructions. YUM

 

 

Til next time….enjoy 🙂
