Dips thrill me. So do chickpeas. Creamy dips transform simple foods into even better food. One of my all time favorite dips is hummus. This simple, versatile spread can be enjoyed with pita, chips, crisp veggies, toast points, crackers, or as a creamy sauce. Hummus can be adjusted to taste. A creamy paste forms easily with garbanzo beans, tahini, spices and lemon.

I never realized how much I love to dip until after I had kids. I took awareness to the magic in it. Taking something simple like an asparagus spear, piece of broccoli or a cherry tomato and dipping it into creamy hummus, salsa or dressing. Happiness prevails.

There are endless amounts of flavors and spices you can add to hummus. You can use any type of bean too. Versatile, simple and fresh ingredients are key with the busy lives we lead.

Lately I have been obsessed with my food processor. It is a one stop shop for savory or sweet sauces and spreads. This kitchen gadget rocks my world. Really.

Chips are always great dippers. These chips I made out of Ezekiel sprouted grain tortillas. A spray of olive oil, pinch of sea salt and a quick toast under a low broiler for 4-5 minutes. Voila! Crispy, healthy chips.

Recently I was sent a new cookbook to review, Big Bowl of Love by Cristina Ferrare. Not only was Cristina a super model and actress, but she sure knows a thing or two around the kitchen.

These days you can catch her cooking show on Oprah’s OWN network. Her book is loaded with simple, fresh and delicious flavors.

The photos capture her recipes with style, elegance and vibrance. They are shot and styled by the fabulous Todd and Diane, White on Rice Couple.

If you are looking for recipes that take advantage of bountiful whole food ingredients then Big Bowl of Love is for you.

It is a one stop shop for 150 amazing recipes that are meant to bring people together through food. Cristina’s bright personality shines throughout the headnotes, flavor combinations and recipe selections.

I will never forget the moment I cracked into this book at the local Starbucks. Each page flip had me excited for more.

For me cookbooks are inspirational launch pads. I gobble up beautiful photos and ingredient lists and then I re-interpret recipes to suit not only my taste palate, but the gamut of ingredients I have on hand. Cristina has a wonderful, simple hummus recipe in her book. I will not post her recipe here, I encourage you to peek inside yourself to get all the fabulous nibbles.

I LOVE hummus. I am rarely without it, I always make my
own, and I have a new flavor all the time. Lately, my favorite has
been “mixed vegetable” where I just throw in whatever small
leftover scraps I have to use up. I steam them and then puree. I’ve
never made one I didn’t like!

amazing.

Nisrine: Those Ezekiel tortillas actually taste a whole lot better once you toast them. With out heat they are a bit bland – with heat some kind of magic happens. “Spunky Hummus,” I like that. I love the color it turns with the sun-dried tomatoes, and the tomato paste kicks it up some too.

Hummus is for sure my favorite dip to have around and this post is reminding me that I haven’t made it in far too long!

I once made a hummus using a sun-dried tomato pesto. I loved it!!

Love the idea of sun dried tomatoes in hummus…not only add color and flavor as well. Great pictures and have a wonderful week ahead Marla :-)

I love hummus with spinach and artichokes. Your hummus with the sudried tomatoes sounds wonderful. I will have to try that real soon.

Sundried tomato hummus is actually one of my favorites along with roasted garlic hummus. Lovely photos as usual!

I love hummus and love your “anatomy of hummus” diagram ;)
I think I love simple roasted garlic hummus the best, but I am absolutely not exclusive !!

I just “liked” you on facebook. My very picky eater daughter loves hummus. It is one thing that I can always count on that she will eat.

Mimi: It is awesome when we can find things out picky eaters love. At least hummus is a healthy food for her. Sometimes it’s not that easy!

This hummus looks so good! I have never made my own hummus before but I think I should use this recipe to try for the first time :)

Lauren: Yes, you gotta try making your own. When you realize how simple, easy and quick it is – you will wonder why it took so long to try DIY hummus. That is how I felt at least.

I’ve heard such good things about this cookbook! One of my favorite has to be garlic hummus…especially roasted garlic. It makes me hungry just thinking of it!

Oh my gosh your photo + illustration is to DIE for it is so cute! Chickpeas are one of my favourite foods…and hummus, well that is an obsession! That is funny because I have made chips with those same tortillas before…they are so good!

Yum… Hummus! I love how versatile hummus is. I like adding Kalamata olives to my hummus for extra flavor. Although roasted garlic is always a classic flavor too.

I love all kinds of hummus. One of the most interesting flavors that I’ve tried from the local farmer’s market is peanut butter flavored hummus.

Trader Joe’s has a guacamole hummus that is FANTASTIC with their pita chips. My mouth is watering thinking about it!

I know I’m late for the giveaway (boo) but I had a question. How well do you think the hummus would turn out if I left out the tahini? I’m allergic to sesame but love hummus. I usually try to eat only a little so I don’t break out in hives….haha. Not really the best thing to do.

Reply

149 Marla April 15, 2011 at 9:13 pm

Brandy: I would totally try the hummus without the tahini if you cannot eat it. Silly, don’t eat the sesame seeds if you are allergic to them. I would add a little more olive oil or oil from the sun dried tomatoes. Might sound weird, but maybe a dab of almond butter would add that creaminess. Adjust oil or nut butter for taste and texture.

I’ve been eating a ton of hummus lately. It really fills me up for being a vegetarian meal. I get a spicy garlic hummus from trader joe’s that is really good ;)

I love hummus! It is so healthy and very high in protein so it is great for your diet and waist line.
