Maybe I can make hummus! In fact, this week while looking for my friend Elizabeth's Friday Night Pizza Dough recipe I came across her scone recipe (mental note) and one for making hummus. It starts with "in a food processor" which makes me laugh because while this apartment is indeed furnished with the most important items needed for living, a food processor is not one of those. Also if I were back in the States I might be lugging up my food processor from its storage spot in the basement, which also makes me laugh. Or maybe I sold it at the yard sale; I can't remember because I used it so little. It often lost out to the immersion blender/chopper combo that lived right in our kitchen. But Murphy's Law would dictate that as soon as I didn't have it I would need it, right? And they are a lot more expensive here in Sweden. (I have yet to find something that is less expensive in Sweden unless it's something that just isn't sold in the US.)
So I mashed and mashed to the chickpea equivalent of crunchy peanut butter (I prefer a few lumps over totally smooth), and then I remembered that my awesome friend Debora included these cracker-chips in her huge care package. I think she got them from Costco, and my gluten-free friends should know they taste great, especially with hummus. Homemade hummus: pretty darn good. And in looking back at the recipe I realized I forgot the lemon juice, so it only gets better.
Also noted for later: Chickpeas can also be roasted for a healthy snack. Thanks, Liz!
