Packers Vs. Bears

January 23, 2011

The time has come!  This play-off game determines who goes to the Superbowl!  I’m very excited.  My parents and I have decided to have people over to watch the game.  We’ve prepared an array of snacks!

Starting from the left you should see crackers with cheese and summer sausage, cookies (chocolate chip pecan and heath), Doritos, Tostitos and salsa, pretzel crackers, The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss and Light French Onion, Indian Spice hummus with pita chips, and in the center is a bowl of sesame sticks and in the small heart shaped bowl are cherry heart gummies and candy hearts.

Did you notice the hummus?  🙂  That is one of my favorite kinds of hummus that I like to make.  I got the recipe from my friend Amber (www.AlmostVeganBlog.com).

Indian Spice hummus

1 can of chickpeas, drained

4 cloves of garlic

1 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice

3 tbsp of tahini

1 tbsp of curry powder

1 tsp of ground cumin

1/4 tsp of ground coriander

1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper

Salt to taste

Put the chickpeas, garlic and lemon juice in the food processor and pulse to combine.  Then turn on the processor and stream in 1/4 cup of cold water while running, until semi-smooth.  Scrape down the sides and add all of the spices except for the salt.  Pulse together, then turn on the processor and stream in another 1/4 cup of cold water.  Stop and scrape down the sides, then turn the processor back on and puree for about 3 minutes.  Then give it a taste and add salt to your liking (I usually use Amber’s recommendation and add 1 tsp of salt).  Puree for 30 more seconds.

Transfer the hummus to a container and refrigerate for at least an hour (longer is more preferable – it brings out the flavors).

I really like to eat the hummus with pita chips, but pita bread is delicious with this hummus also!

Well, the game has started and the Packers are already ahead by 7 points!  Whoo!  Gotta go!
