Tonight was Girl Friends Night Out at church. This is the fall kick-off for women’s ministries. We were given an overview of each class offered and a short devotional was given on Walking By Faith. Of course, food is a vital part of women’s ministries! I tried a recipe of a hummus that we ate in Phoenix last week. It was all a guestament since I was just going by taste!
Drain beans and artichokes and place in food processor. Add 1/3 c. tahini, 2 garlic cloves and salt and pepper.
Process mixture, stopping to scrape sides several times. Add 1/3 c. olive oil, juice of one lemon and 1/2 t. grated lemon peel. Puree until smooth.
Top with 1/4 c. chopped red pepper, paprika and feta cheese.
Drizzle 1-2 T. olive oil over top and serve with fresh veggies and pita bread cut into wedges.
Ron was pumped that I brought home a few scrapings…he promptly finished it off.
