It’s been a long week, recovering from root canal surgery at the end of last week, getting back to work and then having more dental work (the filling before the crown next month) last night. So I was pleased for a short, easy (and soft!) French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Hummus, p 19) this week.
There’s not much to say either – this is a very simple version of what Dorie tells us now includes “a dizzying number of varieties” and it reminded me of how good the plain version can be.
Chick peas, lemon juice, garlic and tahini blended to the texture of your liking with a pinch of cumin – so simple.
I drizzled this with a bit of olive oil before I served it and it was spectacular. Simple clean flavours (and did I mention soft – perfect for sore mouths!). I *should* make the effort to make this much more often.
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs (though this week you can find the recipe online here), rather, we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves (trust me, you definitely want this book!) which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself – join us! Honestly, the recipes that I didn’t like I can count on one hand. Really!
