I know that I have told you that most of my new roommates are vegetarians, but I don’t think I have told you that I finally am living with a fellow foodie! Kelcey is my good friend from high school; I can’t even go into all the stories that we have from the past seven years. She is a nutrition major, works at whole foods and does personal chef work for people around Boulder- can’t get much better than that right? I have never lived with someone who has a passion for cooking too, so obviously I am excited about this! I am also excited to see her vegetarian recipe ideas, since I mainly focus my meals around meat. I know that some more veggie recipes will make some of you very happy, so stay tuned! Either way, Kelcey and I wanted to make hummus for our other roommate’s 21st birthday, yes another 21st.
Kelcey had this amazing lemon-artichoke hummus recipe idea from Cooks Illustrated that was AMAZING! I am in love with artichoke, especially now that I know how to trim one myself, haha. Although I decided it is not worth the money and time to trim your own, I think it is smarter to buy the canned hearts. Lucky for me, Kelcey made another batch of this this week, so I have been eating even more of it! The artichoke and lemon give a great citrusy, tangy kick. I’m telling you, this is probably the best hummus I have ever had.
