I know he like hummus, but hummus is expensive. Garbanzo beans, however, are about $0.70/can. So, like a good girl, I pulled out my new food processor (gonna try making peanut butter next!), drained a can of garbanzos, added 3 cloves of garlic and blended away. Looked a tad dry, so I poured about 1 TBSP of EVOO in and blended. Now, it looked much better. I added about 1/2 an onion, and ~1 tsp kosher salt. I blended away, noting that it smelled quite nice. Hubby also remarked that it smelled good.
I pulled out the tortillas, and gave it a swipe. Wow. Quite a bit of bit, for sure, but quite yummy. I'm already imagining the various variations I can create with the variety of additives from the garden. Between peppers, tomatoes, and various herbs, we've got lots of options. (Love my voracious use of v's?)
