I used to be hooked on hummus. Not just any hummus. I was hooked on Barry’s hummus. Every weekend I’d scurry to the nearby Farmers Market and throw myself (and my cash) at Barry’s booth.
Well, I was at Whole Foods last week and heard the familiar cry of “Hummus Girl! Hey!” It was Barry. He’d been worried about me.
As we talked I knew he had hooked me again. I told him I’d see him this weekend. Just talking about his hummus made my mouth water. I could hardly wait.
There was lots to look at – local grains and honey, homemade yogurt and granola, a pickle stand (!)….
But I went straight to Barry. He was expecting me.
I chose the original, red pepper and garden vegetable flavors and promised myself not to eat a whole tub in one sitting.
Barry makes his hummus from dried chickpeas and uses all fresh ingredients he chops himself (he roasts his own peppers!).
My goodness, y’all. I mean….can you see the bits of veg in there?
It should be said that I NEED my hummus to be chunky with a substantial amount of texture – no creamy hummus for me. Barry’s got it down.
Perfect for my favorite hummus vesicle.
Now if you’ll excuse me…I have a tray full of hummus and a Netflix queue full of awesome. We’ll be in bed spooning.
Just kidding. But I totally could.
