Hummus {FFwD}

Part of what I enjoy about French Fridays with Dorie is making something completely new and unfamiliar to me, like last week’s Endive, Apples, and Grapes. It’s fun exploring new flavors, trying new ingredients, and learning new techniques.

But there’s also something enjoyable about a trying a recipe that’s a new version of an old favorite. And that’s what this week’s offering was for me.

I love hummus, and I never go to a Middle Eastern restaurant without trying the house version. And I’ve made lots of hummus over the years. One of my favorite recipes is from the Moosewood Cookbook, but I’m always game to try a new one.

This was a good, solid hummus. Not remarkable in any way. But quite tasty. And it was especially good served on flatbread that I made with this recipe from King Arthur Flour.

I don’t know if I’ll make Dorie’s version of hummus again, but I’ll definitely make the KAF flatbread to use as a base for hummus and other dips and spreads.

    Moosewood’s always been my starting point for hummus, too. I enjoyed this one, though. Your flatbread looks lovely!

      Thanks! It was good, but it made me want to whip up a batch of Moosewood hummus for sure!

    I used to make a flatbread with chickpea flour but I thought that would be kinda of an over-kill to put hummus on chickpea flatbread so I opted for veggies!!

      Veggies sound like a great option, too!

      That’s why I’ve tried so many recipes — to find one that I really like.

    Homemade flatbread sounds great. I’ll check out that recipe. I was thinking of making homemade whole wheat pita, but I ran out of time…

      I enjoy homemade pita, too. But this flatbread was so quick and easy to make, it was hard to pass up.

    I wish I had had time for the flatbread. But I did like the hummus. I think it was the cummin.

      You should try the flatbread sometime. It was easy and pretty fast.

    Home made flatbread – what a great idea to go with your hummus. I need to try the Moosewood recipe – we love hummus at my house.

    I like that you made your own flatbread! Love the hummus with it.

    You made your own flatbread! I’m so impressed!
    Your hummus looks great.

      Thanks. The flatbread was my friend Abby’s idea. My baking friends are always coming up with fun recipes to try.
