Sometimes when you cook you, stray away from your own intuition and decide to run with all the recipes you ever read, my advice is DON’T…..
You know You. You know what you like ……don’t let anyone tell you any different…
It took a very garlicky houmous to figure this out. I like garlic, I personally don’t find it offensive if you smell of garlic…heavens garlic is sooo good for you. But it wasn’t the main flavour I wanted in my houmous…..The recipes, yes all 21 I looked at, had at least a clove of garlic in them. I didn’t think I knew better. I thought they must know something I didn’t, hell recipes are written by professional cooks and chefs (aren’t they??)….I am but a girl who loves to cook and eat…
It went a clove too far….
Houmous, a fab thing to make. It’s cheap, (much cheaper than the little pots we but in the supermarket). It’s healthy, one of your five a day, it’s quick, it’s tasty. It was ticking all my “things worth making myself” boxes. And it still is worth making….
So ….the secret ingredient…..the secret ingredient is You….
We live in an age where we no longer think we know best…We are told Government knows best, teacher’s know best….Mum’s know best (shocker..we don’t always, we muddle through like the rest of the world). Everyone know’s best…..you know what….I trust you, I’m gonna start trusting me….I am bringing back the secret ingredient…instinct…I won’t follow blindly anymore….however I will smell of garlic for days to come…you’ve been warned 🙂
Recipe to follow…..trust yourself on the garlic….
love and smelly hugs…
