Oh My Potluck!

Good recipes to share with friends.

Classic Act Hummus

Classic Act Hummus from OhMyPotluck.comI decided to whip up some easy hummus this past weekend. Hummus is a quick potluck solution, and I think a lot of people underestimate how easy it is to make. Admittedly, a food processor or good blender comes in handy.

It’s very easy to experiment with hummus (remember my roasted red pepper hummus?). Just add whatever flavours strike your fancy. How do you like your hummus? Olives, grains, peppers, lemons, veggies? Leave your favourite flavour in the comments.

Seeing as this recipe is such a classic, let’s listen to something from a new album called Super Class by Yukon Blonde front-man, Jeffrey Innes. He’s onto a new project called High Ends, and it’s sounds mighty sweet. I’ve had so much fun listening to Yukon Blonde’s music, and it looks like High Ends are following suit, so go on and listen to the song “Downtown”.
