Not humourus hummus 

decided to make hummus.. It’s easy right? Take chickpeas..

Get Mrs Fitz to spend almost an hour skinning them … That’s a job that’s a nightmare yet worth it..

Still doing it!

Then blitz with Tahini paste , a clove of garlic a pinch of cumin and a good amount of excellent olive oil.. Plus lemon and salt..




 A complete waste of food .. Complete waste..

Mrs Fitz was not amused ..

  2. That is pretty humorous. That always happens. You just need to add water until you get the consistancy you’re after 😜


  3. Hmm, I wonder what went wrong here. But sometimes, you can’t really find the answer. I also made no-bake cheesecake a week ago and I got runny filling even I followed the instructions.
    Anyway, when I made hummus, I add some water from the chickpeas – I don’t drain them all. If you don’t want to use it, try adding warm water little by little. 🙂

  4. Still I am glad you posted. We need more posts like this . . . what’s REALLY goin’ on . . what it REALLY looks like in the kitchen. Mind you, I know that you have way way more successes than fails, but still. Let’s see it all! I do wonder though. More olive oil, more tahini. It gets pricey. Easier to buy for sure. I’ve never made hummus actually and I sure as bejesus would never skin a chickpea. Get a foodmill! Cheers. And by the way, I think you were a bit overachieving this FF????? Lots of posts ! All the better . . .


  5. Now this was funny. I can really relate to time and ingredients wasted. Very frustrating.

  6. What went wrong? After all that trouble peeling as well, I bet the poor lady was not amused!

  7. Heh! Some things just aren’t worth the effort when you can buy decent versions in the shops. First time I made hummus, the bloody stuff filled about six coffee jars – it just kept coming, like something out of John Hurt’s stomach in Alien!
