Roasted Eggplant Hummus Recipe

 

Saying I make hummus a lot is like saying the pope is catholic. It has been known to happen. And it's got to stay interesting to stay in the rotation. 

Two weeks ago we dabbled with roasted eggplant. Last week it was beet hummus. All delicious. All healthy and filling. All perfect to bring to play dates with kiddos. Wine dates with moms. Or have on hand when friends stop by.

It's creamy, garlicky, earthy, and mellow. You can keep the flavor profile lower key for the little by roasting garlic, rather than using raw. I personally like my hummus on the spicier side, also easy to do by sprinkling some red pepper flakes on top when serving (or add the spice in the food processor after you've done the main batch and whip up a second for pals who like the heat!).

 

Roasted Eggplant Hummus

Makes about 2 cups

 

Ingredients

1 medium eggplant, roasted and peeled

2 cloves garlic (option to roast this as well for a mellow flavor)

2 tbsp tahini

1/4 cup good olive oil

juice 1 lemon (about 2 tsp)

1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and washed

salt and pepper to taste

red pepper flakes

 

Directions

Place all ingredients, except olive oil, in food processor. Blend until smooth, adding olive oil through top until desired consistancy reached. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Serve with olive oil drizzled on top and red pepper flakes if desired.

Your Spring Style Essential: The Pilot Jacket

 

Mark these words: if you get one trendy item this season, make it a pilot jacket.

It is wearable. Accessible. Bright. Fun. And something everyone can pull off......a list of attributes that is almost never ascribed to anything that has been dubbed trendy. Run, don't walk to pick one up. They are selling out fast.

Also known as a bomber jacket (when I was growing up....officially OLD), but I think that is slightly un-PC at the moment, no?  I picked up a great linen version from H&M that is sadly sold out. The tale you will hear for a lot of these, because they are running out of stores. I have seen more options in brick and mortar spaces than online though, so those who hunt can be rewarded.

My favorite options, on trend, and at a great price point can be found at Zara, H&M and The Real Real.

Don't forget your mini me either. Options abound for the little fashionista. A little mommy and me matchy fashion never did anyone harm. Especially before Mother's Day (hint hint dads, get shopping!).
