Today this girl made her family another Basic Country Loaf from Tartine Bread by Chad Robertson. Being the second time through, a much more easy process it happily was. The leaven was more developed and active since feedings have been daily. This family of silly boys tease that it has become our new family pet and claims that this girl talks to it. I don't. But, this girl does care for it quite particularly, and is beginning to wonder what one will do with my little lovely when a vacation is someday embarked upon.
Today's bread was served with Hummus, a family favorite.
Here is this girl's recipe for Hummus:
Place 2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained, in a Cuisinart:
Add the juice of 2 - 3 lemons:
2 cloves garlic:
1 teaspoon kosher salt:
1 tablespoon cumin:
1/4 cup sesame seeds, ground:
If sesame seeds are lacking in the pantry, tahini or even peanut butter will do nicely.
A few dashes cayenne pepper:
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil:
Blend in food processor until smooth, adding a bit of water as needed.
Enjoy with fresh bread, or even carrots and tortilla chips!
