My hummus addiction is certainly not breaking news. In fact, it has been around for years. However, since recently acquiring a Certified Reconditioned Standard Vitamix High Performance Blender, I’ve started experimenting with making my own. I’ve been working on fine-tuning my hummus experimentations, playing with all sorts of peculiar combinations with the notion that I would eventually stumble on the desired outcome. This weekend, it happened. Naturally it was at a time that I wasn’t measuring anything out (which is pretty typical). I’ve learned that while the whimsical method of guess-timation works wonders for me, it’s not ideal for sharing the recipe love, and so I’ve gradually been adjusting my madness to become more methodical. Tonight I slowed down a minute, measured things out, wrote them down, and arrived at what I am calling my “Holy Spiced Citrus Hummus.” I finished up just in time to sit and enjoy it outside while basking in the sunlight, thanks to the return of daylight saving time.
