Recipe: Sun Dried Tomato Hummus

Every time I make dip I wonder why I ever buy it – it’s so simple, so fast and generally so much tastier when you make it yourself! I’m a big fan of hummus as I find it makes an excellent dip but is equally delicious as a spread in a sandwich so when trying to decide what to make for work this week I decided a variation on hummus was in order. I had seen sun dried tomatoes on special at my local Turkish grocer recently so decided they would do the trick and it turned out deliciously. Smooth and creamy with a nice little kick from the cayenne pepper – perfect!


Recipe: Macadamia and Rocket Dip

This recipe could be called a dip or a pesto as it works just as well as both – have it as part of a platter of crudites and cheeses or on top of a pasta and either way you’ll be laughing. It’s absolutely full of flavour but super simple to make. I used savoury yeast in mine to make it vegan but you could definitely use parmesan instead if you prefer – either work perfectly! The hardest part is decided how to eat it!


Recipe: Baba Ghanoush

love eggplant. Whenever we go out for dinner I am always drawn to anything on the menu with eggplant in it, particularly if we’re eating japanese. However, I don’t have anywhere near the same success with it at home. In fact, I don’t cook with it all that often, because I’m sick of being somewhat disappointed with the results. If anyone has any suggestions for what I might be doing wrong I’d love to hear them!

Baba ghanoush however is a different story – this is almost impossible to get wrong, so I can get my eggplant hit at home in the form of a delicious dip – win!


Blended fun: Hummus and Juices

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I have a new food processor/juicer/blender toy and I’m loving playing with it, so pretty much everything I cook at the moment has at least one element going through the machine! I’m particularly loving the juicing mechanism, but also whipped up some hummus to snack on at work.


Recipe: Carrot Hummus

I found myself with a large pile of carrots that needed using from my last veggie box delivery, so decided to something a little different and make a carrot hummus to take with me to work and snack on during the week. The recipe is from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Veg Everyday cookbook and it was both simple and delicious – just how I like recipes to be!
