So, as you know, I hauled TEN crates from my attic and decorated for Christmas on Saturday. I had to totally revamp my plates / cups situation to accomodate my Christmas Ware. As I maniacally cleaned my appliances that sit on open shelves (what is WRONG with me?!) I came to my beautiful pink Kitchen Aid Food Processor that did not make the move from Florida. When I unpacked the food processor, everything looked fine, but I tried and tried it. It never would turn on. I didn’t have the heart to throw it away. It’s been sitting on my shelf so I could long for its better days for over a year now. I just couldn’t give up on it. I decided to plug it in, you know, just to see. My food processor turned on.
My food processor totally came back to life.
Don’t even think that I didn’t whip up some hummus within 20 minutes!– 2 cans of chick peas, one drained and rinsed, the other I just didn’t bother. I threw the whole thing in – squeezed a whole lemon into it – threw a couple of jalapenos in (without the seeds… the children!) – couple of cloves of garlic – turned my bottle of olive oil over for sec (a tablespoon or so?) – I let the kids spoon some tahini in. Two spoonfuls each. I’m not sure how much tahini went in.
Best hummus ever.
