A Food Post

Simple Hummus
Usually, we buy Sabra hummus because in the past, we’ve never had much luck making a homemade hummus to compete with it. I may have finally found one. It’s really simple so next time I’ll add things like spinach, onions and more to give it an extra kick. The only thing to watch out for in this recipe is that it didn’t all fit in my food processor. Actually, the oil and water started leaking out the bottom because that middle thing that holds the blade is shorter than the container. So I quick threw everything into our blender—which wasn’t smart either because with denser ingredients, that tends to create an air pocket at the bottom after only one second of spinning. So basically it mixes air and you have to turn it off, remove the lid stir it up and mix for another measly second. Then repeat. And repeat and repeat. Anyway, I ended up putting it in a bowl and using a hand mixer. That sure pureed it up nicely.

Vegan Omelet
My brother has been laid up with knee trouble so I’ve been spoiling him quite a bit with tasty foods. One thing I’ve been working on perfecting is a vegan omelet. I tried this recipe first but he wasn’t too keen on the basil taste or the chunks of potato. So next I winged a more traditional omelet—silken tofu with pepper, onions, (tofurky) meat and (Daiya) cheese. Once I’ve perfected it, perhaps I’ll share a recipe.

Spinach Tofu Risotto
Another recipe I want to perfect is a Spinach Tofu Risotto I saw in a cook book. I followed the directions exactly but found it to be a little dry in the end. Once I get my hands on more of the ingredients, I’ll try again.

Blueberry Frozen Yogurt
Blueberry Frozen Yogurt (inspired by this recipe.)

Roasted Garlic
We had some garlic getting old, so I learned how to roast it for the first time. It seems to have really been past it prime so it didn’t work out as planned, but my Mom ended up pureeing it up for a gravy or sauce or something.

Chickpea Guacamole
Also made was an adaptation of this Smashed Chickpea and Avocado Salad.

I can’t wait for lettuce of our own!

Siggi's Skyr Yogurt
I’ve been seeing this Icelandic skyr yogurt on the shelf at the supermarket and finally decided to give it a try. It’s a lot like Greek yogurt.

Tofu with Dill "Mayo" Sauce and Roasted Veggies
One way I love to cook tofu is to cut it in thin slabs and crispy/brown it up in some olive oil, then you can slather it with a dressing of your choice. Here it’s with a homemade dill, celery salt and pepper Veganaise sauce. Also on the plate: roasted carrots and potatoes.

    Blueberry frozen yogurt sounds wonderful! Blueberries are pretty scarce around here, so you are lucky!
