I had this song stuck in my head when I was at the grocery store today. I gave into the lyrics and got an eggplant to make baba ganoush. It didn’t make the song leave my head, but it was yummy!
For the baba I microwaved the eggplant (lazy, yes, but effective as well), and then scooped out the inside.
I blended it with tahini, garlic, and parsley. It was tasty!
I also made falafel. They seemed to go together. I had soaked chickpeas (most recipes asked for soaked, but not cooked) because we need to make more hummus, so I was good to go. All the directions I saw told you to use a food processor. I have a blender. It took a while. I started with this
And watched it become this
And finally this!
Then I shaped them into balls and sprayed ’em with pam. Baked for about 20 minutes!
They turned out pretty good
My lunch was the falafel and baba plus lettuce, carrots, and a tahini-yogurt sauce. Loved it!
Only sad things is that I didn’t make extra…
But, to make up for it, I used my coupon ninja skills to get cheap chocolate! 15 cents per bar baby…
Now to hide it. I’ve learned a valuable lesson that if I bury candy in the freezer I forgot it’s there until I really need something sweet, and the fiance doesn’t steal it!
Do you ever hide food so you don’t have to share?
