My Hummus Obsession Ends Here: The Best Hummus Recipe, Ever

My Hummus Obsession Ends Here: The Best Hummus Recipe, Ever

I am absolutely, completely, hopelessly, ridiculously obsessed with hummus. I, like actress, Natalie Portman crave hummus and have the ability to eat my body weight in hummus (yes, that’s my pop culture reference for today.) My hummus obsession is attributed to my mother and my favourite restaurant, Nuba.

Ooey Gooey Cheesy Butter Chicken Sauce Bread

Ooey Gooey Cheesy Butter Chicken Sauce Bread

Okay are you ready for this — Ooey Gooey Cheesy Butter Chicken Sauce Bread? It will kind of change your life. Probably your waistline too, but it’s the festive season, so it’s 100% worth it. BONUS: it is unbelievably drool-worthy, scrumptious, “scary good”.

I love a food mash up. The idea of throwing two good things together to make a new wonderful thing, always makes me smile. This does not disappoint.

The Most Perfect Chip Dip – Yogurt Chili Dip

The Most Perfect Chip Dip – Yogurt Chili Dip

I love potato chips. (Yes, I have declared this in an earlier post). I eat them daily. They are my late night snack. An indulgence. A reward for completing as many items off project “work lists”.

I go through flavour cycles and varieties. Sometimes with dip, other times without. Lately, I eat only plain or rippled chips and dip. Chips, while delicious, have a lot of preservatives, so to create some kind of balance, I make my own dip. Need more reason to eat chips with dip? Chips are good on their own, but dip adds more excitement. Part of the fun in eating chips is dipping them into a cool, creamy, tangy sauce.

Fiery Bengali Mustard

Fiery Bengali Mustard

Just wrap your head around the title of this recipe for a moment. Homemade mustard with fiery Bengali spices. Oh-em-gee.

For me it’s important to make new variations of condiments, dips, and spreads. Over the years, I have noticed specialty mustards, packaged beautifully and available for purchase at foodie stores. The price is usually staggering and the ingredients have words I can’t pronounce.

Dabbling in homemade mustard making has the benefits of controlling sodium levels, avoiding additives, getting a healthy dose of spice (I like my heat), and the surprising ease of doing it yourself.

Pomegrante Razatziki

Pomegrante Razatziki

I love making this yogurt sauce. It’s a riff on India’s yogurt side dish and a play on Greece’s creamy dip, hence the name razatziki. It’s a mouthful of a name, so I call it raita (pronounced rie-tha) when I serve it with Indian food, and tzatziki when I serve it with Greek food.
