We're having friends over today and my goal was to not spend the afternoon in the kitchen working on food. So... I've prepped most of the food for the day in advance. Nothing really fancy but some good simple food.
For the appetizer type things I have three different kinds of hummus/bean dip.
Black Bean dip - 1 can black beans, juice of one lime, zest of one lemon, 4 cloves of garlic diced, a healthy amount of cumin and a couple of dashes of Bragg's Liquid Aminos - run that through the food processor until smooth.
Hummus - 1 can of chick peas, 1 head of garlic roasted, juice of 1 lemon, 2 TBSP of dill, 1-2 TBSP of Tahini and a couple of dashes of Bragg's Liquid Aminos - run that through the food processor until smooth.
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus - Same as the regular Hummus, just with the addition of a red pepper that I roasted in the oven this morning with the two heads of garlic.
I've got a crockpot of Veggie chili going right now (pigeon peas, chick peas, morningstar crumbles, bag of frozen corn, yellow and red peppers, two onions, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin (2-3 TBSP), chili powder (2-3 TBSP) and a large can of tomato sauce. More seasoning may be needed based upon taste.
Later I'll be making some beans and rice along with some chickpea nuggets
