It's been quite hot here lately, and my appetite has been small. I'm also trying to eat as many meals that are close to the Eat to Live diet as possible (which means mostly beans and vegetables with some nuts/seeds) and in his hot weather, that means a lot of raw veggies and salads for me.
Today I made hummus for the first time in my wonderful KitchenAid blender, using the basic Hummus recipe from Veganomicon. I used canned chickpeas for convenience but made a roasted sesame version by adding some roasted sesame oil (about 1 TB). I also used a bit more lemon juice. Served here with olive oil and smoked paprika on top.
I think this is a great basic recipe and I will be making it often this summer with different additions.
