Happy Vegetarian Day!



Nothing much to post about today.
Just wanted to say Happy Vegetarian Day!
Today I packed hummus; drool as you may!



Haha, enough with the rhyming. Today's lunch was uber delicious and inspired by an omni-friend!!! It all started in geometry class when we randomly were having a discussion on good potluck foods (we had a party for getting all A's on our tests). At the mention of "hummus," a loud groan and a "YUCK!" immediately ensued. (This was also the same omni friend who curiously and dubiously tried my pineapple teriyaki tofu, much to my [and later, her] delight).

Determined to change her mind, I set about making hummus for the first time. Version 1.0 was a sun-dried tomato basil hummus. Yummus! She really took to that one, though I thought that Trader Joe's version of that flavor was better. (This was on Tuesday)

Surprise of surprises! She knew about nat'l vegetarian day (!) and even asked me to bring her more hummus for lunch! So last night I set about making version 2.0 : Chipotle Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (also Trader-Joe inspired). This one, I am proud to say, turned out exactly like the one at Trader Joe's!!!

Not Pictured (regretfully): Mint Chocolate Whoopie Pies, Cherry Chocolate Whoopie Pies, Vanilla Whoopies, and Double Chocolate Whoopie Pies.

Spread the [VEG] love!

Edit: I will be MoFo-ing this year, but will most likely post every other day at most.

Hummus rocks! Glad you coverted your friend to it and that your recipes turned out great!

Go to Zevia.com and you can put in your zipcode and find the nearest place to purchase it. You can also order online. I think they have 4 flavors. Check them out!
