Hummus Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm just chilling, snacking on some Athenos brand Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, and this shit is delicious. I like hummus in general and really appreciate the simpler things in life, like some delicious hummus with flatbread. I've got some scrumptious whole grain flatbread and it really goes along with this hummus, you know? Anyway, hummus is awesome, so if you love hummus or have some hummus anecdotes you'd like to share, or just want to talk about hummus, let's do it here and now watmm.

I always spell it houmous? Who knows

Morrisons' new Moroccan Humous is really super tasty

 

Morrocan houmous from sainsburys is tip-top but asda Morrocan houmous isn't even slightly the same thing and its foul.

 

Also never buy the reduced fat ones they are like wet sand.

 

I made houmous for a girl once but it didn't turn out that great, and when I gave it to her she was drunk and I ate it all anyway. Houmus Hummus houmus humous

I adore houmous... I don't know a single vegetarian or vegan who isn't completely reliant on it. Trying to cut down on fat these days so I eat it less often, but damned if there's anything that incapsulates the idea of simple, elegant beauty better than houmous and pitta.

warning - hummus anecdote:

 

i once bought some jalapeno hummus from sainsburys and took it home and ate it with some toasted pitta. upon finishing the whole pot in one sitting (yes just one sitting!!) i enthusiastically declared "this is the best hummus i have ever tasted!".

 

true story.

houmous annecdote:

 

I took some hummus to a festival and after three days in a warm tent the humous was in subprime condition and tasted quite fizzy on the tongue but I ate it anyway and it was really nice

From the all-knowing wikipedia:

 

Hummus (a transliteration of the Arabic: حمّص‎; also spelled hamos, hommos, hommus, homos, houmous, hummos, hummous, or humus[1])

I think the only reasonable solution is for us to refer to it by the entire list of permutations, i.e.

 

"I'm going to the shops to pick up some hummus hamos, hommos, hommus, homos, houmous, hummos,hummous, or humus"

Last night I had a garlic and coriander toasted pitta with Morrisons' Moroccan hummus hamos, hommos, hommus, homos, houmous, hummos,hummous, or humus, Mature Canadian Cheddar, Rocket, Cherry Tomatoes and Fresh sliced Red Chillies. As soon as I finished it Mrs. LUDD returned from work and when I explained how tasty it was I had to make another one for her. THEN when I saw her enjoying her garlic and coriander toasted pitta with Morrisons' Moroccan hummus hamos, hommos, hommus, homos, houmous, hummos,hummous, or humus, Mature Canadian Cheddar, Rocket andCherry Tomatoes - she did not want the sliced chillies - I came over all envious and had to make a THIRD garlic and coriander toasted pitta with Morrisons' Moroccan hummus hamos, hommos, hommus, homos, houmous, hummos,hummous, or humus, Mature Canadian Cheddar, Rocket, Cherry Tomatoes and Fresh sliced Red Chillies for myself. How we laughed.

I love hoummus but it's really hard to get any decent pre-made hummus here so I have to resort to making it myself which is cool but it's horrible getting the leftover humus out between the blades of my blender, so the moral to the story is that everything has a downside, even homos.

But I'm making some tonight, lots of garlic and have some assorted chopped vegetables with it and maybe some falafel balls as well. And a shitload of green peppers (not bell peppers the jalapeno kind but milder).

I'm getting a houmos boner.

      I'm going to Italy and Greece next week, so I'm grateful for the two years of French I took in high school that will inevitably come in useful not at all, and I know to not go to this place:

      I'm curious...what is your favorite food complement to beer?

      I would think anything greasy and/or salty in general would do. But I'm curious about specific foods in your guys' experience. I'm hoping to get some suggestions and recommendations so I get ideas for this summer.

      FETTUCINE ALLA PRIMAVERA WITH ASPARAGUS AND SMOKED TROUT
       
      serves two
       
      INGREDIENTS
       
      decent bunch of spring onions
      5-6 asparagus spears (not just the tips)
      couple of decent handfuls of frozen garden peas
      half a pack of dry fettuccine/linguine
      good few sprigs of fresh mint
      good few sprigs of fresh basil
      350g of smoked trout or mackerel
      pint of milk
      grated parmesan
      salt and pepper to season
       
      you'll need a hand blender.
       
      INSTRUCTIONS
       
      get a decent kettle of water on the boil.
       
      meanwhile roughly chop the spring onions, asparagus, and half the mint and basil. discard the bottom inch or so of the asparagus spears, which is woody and tough. leave the asparagus tips intact.
       
      get some oil on a medium heat in a decent pan with tall edges, and get the water into a pot and on the boil.
       
      fry the spring onions, add the asparagus after a minute, and then the milk, peas and the chopped mint and basil about two minutes later. season liberally with salt/pepper.
       
      now get the fettuccine cooking, it takes about 11 minutes. season the boiling water liberally with salt.
       
      add about two tablespoons of flour to the veg/milk mix, then stir, reduce to a low heat and simmer. use the hand blender to blend about a third of the veg into the sauce. it'll start to thicken up nicely. after a few minutes, add the flaked fish.
       
      when the pasta is done, strain it but save about half a cup of the starchy pasta water, and add that to the pan with the sauce. simmer for another minute or two. the starcy water will make it all silky and glossy and chef-y.
       
      mix the pasta and the sauce in a big bowl and garnish with the parmesan and the remaining mint and basil.
