Roasted Garlic Hummus + Tutorial to Make the Smoothest Hummus
I've seen Deb from Smitten Kitchen and a few others do a recipe using this method of shelling the thin, papery skins from chickpeas to make hummus even smoother. If you think I'm a little crazy to spend valuable time removing those little skins, that's all right. I didn't time the whole process because I spent some time figuring out which method was the fastest (see below), but I was able to rock and roll through two cans of chickpeas like it was nothing.
Another recipe I loved this week: When you have burgers for dinner at least once a week it's fun to switch things up a little. Don't get me wrong, I'll never turn down a beef burger, but this Fajita Turkey Burger from Carrian at Sweet Basil was incredible. My problem with turkey burgers in general is their dryness. Not this one! I served this without buns or cilantro and we absolutely demolished them. I was able to get 5 large burgers out of my pound of turkey rather than 3-4.
I'm linking up this recipe at The Humble Brag.
