Garbanzo Journalism


Mother fantastic! Last night when I should've been enjoying the loneliness of my apartment, but was instead so high on having purchased my first domain name that I couldn't stop thinking about what to cook next, I came up with the idea of making hummus and baba ganoush (Around the World in 80 Meals, anyone?). After about two minutes of thought I came up with the idea of titling today's entry (entree?) "Garbanzo Journalism". I googled it just to make sure I was being original, and... I don't remember what the results were. Well f-you every other clever person in the world! I came up with this name on my own and I've actually read "Fear and Loathing" so it's mine! And with these recipes it is also yours:

Roast Red Pepper Hummus

1/2 Red Bell Pepper
2 Large Cloves Garlic
2 teaspoons of Tahini
Olive Oil
Pepper
Ground Cumin
Ground Coriander
10 oz. can Garbanzo Beans (you can call them chickpeas... but only if you must)

Toast red bell pepper and garlic in toaster oven or grill or whatnot. Destroy all ingredients in mini food processor until nice consistency. Enjoy with pita bread (or corn chips if you're half Mexican).

Baba Ganoush

Eggplant
Tahini
Cucumber

Who am I kidding? My baba ganoush was pretty bad (or at the least not terribly great). Don't worry, I like this stuff too much not to come back to it.

The slices on the plate in the photo are pickled turn-up. I bought it. One day I will pickle my own turn-ups (among other foods), but not yet.
