Simple Sun-dried Tomato White Bean Hummus
This is super, super lazy of me.
I mean, is throwing a bunch of ingredients in your food processor actually considered cooking?
Is this even a real recipe?
Is the meaning of life not waiting-for-Friday-so-you-can-have-15-glasses-of-wine-without-judgment?!
So many questions. So much hummus.
Hummus is my go-to recipe when I totally don’t feel like cooking. It’s a recipe without the effort, ya know? It’s a no brainer. My safe zone. My happy snacking place that makes up for the 33,000 chocolates I had this weekend.
And is it bad to admit I didn’t even go food shopping for this one? I literally just snooped around my cabinets, found two cans of ingredients, and decided yup! This will do.
I really go the extra mile for you guys.
It never ceases to amaze me just how much crap I cram into my kitchen. My entire apartment is the size of a MacBook Air, yet somehow I manage to live out an episode of Hoarders in my kitchen. Not in a gross way, of course. But does anyone need 15 spatulas from the 99 cent store? Seems fairly useless. Or the collection of Bed Bath & Beyond receipts that I save just in case I find time to bring them back to the store and use with a coupon? Oh, and the corresponding pile of Bed Bath coupons that I never remember in the first place, hence how this vicious cycle begins?
Yeah, I live like this.
And worst of all? This barely even touches the surface of what’s really going on in my teeny, tiny, did you get this from Fisher-Price? delightful little kitchen.
The pots and pans I will never use again – hello, grease stains from 2010! -, the endless mounds of tupperware that always topple onto my head, that jar of ground mace I bought because I thought it was nutmeg and well, it wasn’t, and of course, a grandiose assortment of bamboo cheese boards because ohmygod cheese!! and ohmygod half of these are splattered with red wine.
So yeah, sometimes I just need to avoid the clutter, take out my food processor, and make things easy – Hummus is my solution. If you aren’t doing it already, you guys need to be eating more white beans. They’re mellow in taste and they blend up into the creamiest, smoothest texture, its total perfection. Obviously sun-dried tomatoes are divine, so their flavors rock out here, and the lemon juice adds a nice touch of tang, too. And best of all? This is a 4-ingredient, 5-minute delicious snack!
Is there anything more perfectly simple than that?
Ya know, besides being organized and having space and stuff.
