Default Re: Food That Makes You Salivate

oh, my mommi just reminded me of another form of eating hummus.

hummus paté
olive oil
2 eggplants
those little green leaves
1 tomato
ground syrian pepper
(a tiny onion, optional)

boil a little the eggplant, then bake it with the tomato and the pepper (i add some salt, barbecue salt, you know? that rocky one)
then crush all this with the little green herbs
mix to the tahine
then sprinkle (i love this word) little pieces of onion

and serve it


in pita bread

Anybody have a good recipe for it?

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I do...

2/3 cup sesame tahini (available in healthfood or middle eastern stores)
3 tbsp water (or more)
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 cups cooked chick peas (you can use a drained large can)
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Combine the tahini, water, lemon juice and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add chick peas and blend until smooth. Push down with a spatula as needed. You may need to add an additional 1 to 2 tablespoons of water if it is too thick.

Scrape into a serving bowl and season to taste. Serve with pita bread. (I sometimes garnish it with a touch of extra-virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika.)

This is an EXCELLENT recipe, it usually gets raves when I serve it.

What are these little green leaves to which you're referring, Amanda? Bay leafs? Or is it ?

I got another recipe, similar to Nippers, 'cept she puts cumin in it also.

Thanks again. I can't wait to make some this weekend.

Oh, doesn't it??! Here's the recipes we use...it's just slightly modified from a Mollie Katzen book~

Cream of Broccoli
3 T butter
1 1/4 cups chopped onion
1 medium green pepper
4 cups chopped broccoli
1 cup broccoli flowerettes, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups Whole Foods Veggie "Chicken" broth (water is okay)
2 cups milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 bay leaf
pinch allspice
black & white pepper to taste
3 T tamari
T dried basil OR (better) 1/4 cup fresh basil
dash garlic powder

Saute the onions in butter with bay leaf until onions are translucent. Remove bay leaf. Add chopped green pepper, hot stock, chopped broccoli, and salt. Cook about 10 mins covered.
Whisk in the yogurt and seasonings (tamari, too). Adjust salt and pepper. Steam broccoli flowerettes until just done (tender, full of color). Combine floweretes with soup in large kettle/or double boiler. heat gently and serve right away. Mmmmmm~~
