Obsession Confession: Hummus

Ok for realz. I cant get enough hummus. All kinds. All day long I could bask in the glow of the earthy gloppy glory that man kind calls hummus. Seriously, you dont understand. And whats even better. ITS MAD CHEAP TO MAKE! Ok no joke kids. I would say you could make a huge pot of it for under 5 bucks all together.

Now, here is the "recipe" that me and my friends use, even though we dont measure anything and just kinda go with the flow and taste things out.

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced and then mashed (or galric powder)
  • 2-3 cans of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained
  • 2 tablespoons of tahini
  • 1 squeezed lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • sprinkle of paprika
Just step one: Dump everything together in a food processor or chopper thingy and go crazy.

You can pretty much add any sort of spice or taste to it and it will be glorious. I like the red pepper kinds, and garlic kinds. Also plain is pretty fricken good. The most expensive thing about this treat is the tahini, but once you buy a jar it can be used for ten more batches. You should make this right now.

Eat it with: pita chips, carrots, any vegetable, tortilla chips, bread, eggs, pasta, soup, crackers, tomato basil wheat thins, life.

I swear to the good lord, if you spend $4.99 for a little tub of processed weird ingredient hummus, I cant be your friend anymore.

This might sound disgusting.. but..

So.. I started doing this thing, and it sounds nasty, and its not healthy at all. But its not something you do all the time, only when you have no other food in your apartment and you are hungry and need something to sustain you thats not lame and boring.

Macaroni and Cheese.
with corn.
and tator tots.
And hot sauce.

And you mix it all up.
And eat it.

And its really good. Haha. I love hot sauce.

LEts say you are in a rush, going to class, no time for breakfast, or lunch for that matter, so you think, WHAT can I pour down my throat to satisfy my need to nutrients, flavor, food, etc.

Well my friends, I have something to recommend. NAKED Juice is Heaven, pure heaven. It cures cancer, it helps you grow thicker hair, it will help you gain muscle tone and attract the ladies, or.. men. I promise you, one stop at your local seveneleven711 or starbucks to pick up a bottle of naked juice, and your life will be quenched. Every bottle has a pound of natural fruits in it, and they all contain nutrients that will energize your life.

I recommend Green machine. It cured my mono last year. Im not kidding. Do it. Drink it. You will not regret it.

Ive Got one Hand in My Pocket (and the other in East Side's Pocket)

So you like falafels, hummus, tabouleh? Then East Side Pockets is the best place to go. I went there today, for the FIRST time ever, whats wrong with me, and it was glorious. I chose the Falafel wrap with everything on it minus onions, and the total was a grand $5.50! And its a HUGE wrap full of falafel glory.
Its located on Thayer St, of course. Kitty Corner from Urban Outfitters and up the hill from the Brown bookstore.
