Hot on the heels of summer is this rosy-hued snack: Roasted Garlic and Beet Hummus!
How rad are you going to be when you enter the next soiree you’ve been invited to with hummus in hand that is a) homemade; b) bright magenta; and c) totally delish TIMES INFINITY? You’re going to be the coolest kid up in that joint!
Packed with a roasted beet, a whole head of roasted garlic, gobs of tahini, and of course – the star of the show – chickpeas (that mighty legume!), this Roasted Garlic and Beet Hummus is not just vibrantly hued: it’s also vibrantly flavored.
We’ve got a good one today, guys: a Ricotta Bacon Date Dip that is creamy, sweet, and savory all in one! Better yet, it’s a snap to make.
It’s not the time for elaborate meals right now. It’s Big Game weekend here in the U.S. (am I as a lay person not even allowed to use the term “Super Bowl”? I never know.)! Time for beer and wings and nachos, silly TV ads and Gaga’s halftime show, betting games like squares! And football, of course.
Happy Friday, my dears! It’s the W-E-E-K-E-N-D! And to celebrate, today I have this Garlic Roasted Almonds recipe for ya. 🙂
Having a Monday-through-Friday day job in corporate America (for now, at least!) that doesn’t quite vibe with my personal interests, I very much savor the weekend, a.k.a. Real Life, as I call it. During Real Life time, I have the space to do all of the stuff that my heart sings at doing, such as developing recipes for this blog (utilizing the precious daylight that is so scarce this time of year and oft missed when I’m corralled inside my cubicle), visiting new restaurants with my pals, and dozing off in front of the TV in my fleece sweatpants (seriously one of my fave pastimes. I am not a napper except when it’s dark and I’m in front of a TV). And snacking – lots and lots of unbridled snacking.
Eating this mozzarella and roasted garlic white bean dip is like jumping into a vat of cheesy-gooey-garlicky deliciousness that you never want to leave.
