Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


BTW I had some young vegans to dinner last night for falafel. They had never made hummus

so we made it together. They were surprised how easy and cheap it is--they've been buying it at Trader Joe's which is not even very good, IMO. I follow Julia's formula, roughly:

1 cup dried chickpeas, soaked overnight and cooked, liquid reserved
3 or more cloves garlic
Olive oil
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Fresh Sage

Scoop the chickpeas into the processor with a little of their liquid. Put the garlic through a press into a small bowl, sprinkle with salt and mash with the back of a spoon until smooth. Add to processor along with several tablespoons each of oil and tahini, a handful of sage leaves, and seasonings. Process, adding more oil and/or bean liquid to get the desired consistency. Taste for seasoning.
