Edamame Hummus

I learned a new word the other day…

This Greek word was introduced to me by my niece. It got me thinking. Not about my passion, motivations or anything inspirational. It got me thinking about hummus! What can I say, I’m just a simple-minded guy with an insatiable appetite. Thus began my research…

 

The following is what I learned:

-Hummus is a dip or spread made of ground chickpeas, sesame seeds, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic.

-The Greek and Arabian people have been debating over who created hummus first.

-Greek philosophers Plato and Socrates made note of the health benefits of hummus.

 

Now here are some fun facts about my hummus recipe:

-My recipe doesn’t use olive oil, lemon juice or…chickpeas. Now that I think about it, I’m not sure I can even call this dish hummus.

-The people of Greece probably don’t appreciate how I used their inspirational word (meraki) as the premise for destroying a dish that has been in their culture for thousands of years.

-This dish is good on its own but becomes absolutely amazing when served with hummus shovels pita chips.
