I feel icky. Not sick icky. The other kind of icky… the kind from sitting on your butt and eating all day icky. I wasn’t a fan of today: it was the epitome of lazy. I didn’t leave the house – ewww – and I broke my 11 day exercise streak. How about the things I did do?
1. I wrote my first post for College Lifestyles.
2. I made broccoli hummus.
Once I realized I had all 6 of the ingredients needed to make Sarah’s recipe, I jumped straight up off my behind and into the kitchen. After a few minutes of pureeing, I finally felt like I did something productive for my health today.
If you’re feeling lazy on a Friday afternoon, this is an easy way to make you feel a little better about yourself.
Recipe adapted from In Praise of Leftovers:
- 1 1/2 – 2 c. raw, organic broccoli
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 3T tahini
- 2T olive oil
- juice of 1 lemon [see note]
Mix all ingredients in blender [or preferably, a food processor] until creamy.
Notes for Next Time:
- Use the juice from half a lemon [as the original recipe states]; it was too acidic – oops.
- Add beans, any kind really.
- Add spice(s).
It is really delicious though, and low-fat! I betcha it’ll be featured in tomorrow’s second meal.
Do you have a favorite type of hummus?
One of my goals for the summer is to expand my recipe page. You heard me, all the stops are coming out this summer: folding, whisking, mincing, mashing… caramelize, chiffonade, julienne – it’s time I cook for real!
Muffins in the morning?
Night, loves! xoxo
P.S. Ask me a question! I don’t bite.
