  • Pink hummus

    • angrygreycat on September 04, 2018

      Made this over the weekend for part of a "board" dinner. Really easy, nice tasting hummus that adds beautiful color to a spread. Served it with a variety of crackers, toasted pita bread, raw veg, nuts, cheeses, apricots and a couple other dips. Definitely would make again.

  • Lemon-herb white bean dip

    • angrygreycat on September 04, 2018

      Made this over the weekend as part of a "board" dinner, along with the Pink Hummus also in this book. This was a nice tasting white bean dip. Excellent spread on toasted pitas. Would also be good on crostini or as a base in a sandwich or wrap. Would make again!
