and I really do just feel like pita bread (not to be confused with PITA - pain in the ass... bread) and hummus.
I love traditional. I love roasted red pepper. I love tahini (sesame seed paste). I love it all. And I really, REALLY love garlic. (shhh... don't kiss me!)
Most of the recipes I'd found start with canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans). But... I really don't like the briny-ness. Ew! ... and besides, I have some dried ones in my pantry. Some garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, some sesame seeds and a little oregano... and I'll be good to go. Yum-O!
THIS is the recipe I'm gonna try before I do the above recipe. I'll adjust the seasonings, and tell you how it was!
It is quiet. It is quick. It is totally awesome. It has THREE! bowls (that all fit inside each other!). It has blades galore! It does everything I've ever wanted to do with food (except cook it, of course!). One disc has an adjustable blade... so YOU can adjust the thickness of a slice, should you want to...
But... it is a Williams-Sonoma exclusive. And... I can't find it anywhere else... for less than $299. Ugh.
My daughter and I love it so much... we're willing to split it as a Christmas gift together? (do I sound desperate?)
So... as I'm pulsing away with my chickpeas and garlic, I'll be fantasizing about this... and what could be... have fun! and if you try it... let me know how it was! Toodles!
