Chive Hummus

18 April 2010

The Out of the Box Challenge this week was to use a new herb; one that you haven’t used at least in the last three months. I cook with a lot of herbs, because I love natural flavors. However, one I haven’t used since the early fall  is chives. IMG_1194I got these crispy, green chives at my local farmers’ market.

I love chives in anything to do with potatoes, but I decided to try something different today.

On Saturday at the grocery store, I picked up some tahini . I was so excited to try this and create real hummus.  I tried making hummus once before, but it was a major flop without the tahini. Garlic, chives and chickpeas make such a great combination together. I served my hummus with some veggies to several friends who declared me the snackspert . The chives were a great addition to the hummus. I’m glad they are back in season.

    Hummus in any form to me is so delightful! If you eat eggs, you should try and make deviled eggs and instead of using mayo/mustard as the base, use hummus! Scrumptious!

      I bet those would be good and so much protein. I love the design of your site by the way.
