Vegan Mofo - Why Hummus?

It all started with a conversation about peeling chickpeas.

Linz and I were at brunch way back in March and started chatting about a blog post I had seen relating to peeling chickpeas prior to making hummus. We both agreed that it would be a fun way to spend an afternoon and that we would have to try it (this is how you know we're meant to be friends).

This led to more talks of hummus and our mutual love of hummus. As vegetarians, hummus is a pretty normal staple for both of us and something we both really adore. We suddenly found ourselves coming up with all sorts of ideas for delicious, creative and magical variations of hummus. We realized that:
a) chickpea sales were going to go up in our neighborhoods
b) we were gonna need more food processors
c) a month of hummus would be a perfect way to celebrate Vegan Mofo

So I guess the question really is, why NOT hummus?!

We couldn't determine any reasons why hummus was a bad idea, so Lindsay is going to be hosting our month of hummus over on her lovely blog in honor of Vegan Mofo. Expect all sorts of chickpeas, tips and tricks, stellar recipes, some extra special guests and all kinds of fun. Get ready, its going to be 'hummazing' with all the hümmi* that we're going dream up!

*we have decided that hümmi is the appropriate plural of hummus

I love hummus and I'm also a fan of chick peas, but I make an avocado hummus with white cannelloni beans instead and it is DEEE-lish! The taste is a bit milder but the consistency is much the same. I'm not vegetarian or vegan, but I have a severe dairy (cow's milk) allergy so I use lots of recipes for inspiration.

I've never ever in my life tasted hummus. I've heard so many good things about it that I think it's high time I tried it. I'm not vegetarian, but I do like to experiment with healthy (and delicious) food.
