2 Hummuses (Hummusi?) and some baby food!

What is the plural of hummus anyway?

Two tasty hummus recipes: One is a slight variation on SusanV's Shiny Happy Hummus, made with carrots and (in my version) lots of ginger. This is a lovely, light-tasting hummus, with a little bit of a bite and a really "shiny happy" flavor...tastes like spring so it was very seasonally appropriate. The only real change I made to the recipe was to double the ginger and add a tad bit more heat.

The other, a tomato basil hummus, looking a bit salmon-esque in the picture:

2 cups cooked chickpeas
3 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp tahini
1/2 tsp cumin
2 tsp dried basil or a small handful of fresh basil, minced
pinch of cayenne
1 tbsp lemon juice
a bit of water to aid in blending
salt and black pepper to taste.

Blend everything together. Eat.

The tomato one was okay, but the Shiny Happy Hummus? Susan, awesome, as always!

Oh yes, and baby food? No, not food for babies, but food in its infant state. We have lots of baby plants! Baby pictures are always cute, even when they are plants (AAAWWWHH! Baby plants!)

I wish I had some help eating my hummuses...hummusi...because it can't get pretty lonely eating a huge batch on one's own!
I'm so envious of your garden, yo!

I'm super jealous of your gardening- we won't be around much this summer, so we didn't even start one. Boo.
