Today was a day of cooking for the week! I had a lot of fun recipes to try this week, so I decided to make them today so I would have them to enjoy throughout the week.
I started by cooking a big batch of dried chickpeas. I soaked them overnight and cooked them on the stove for about 2 hours:
I used a basic hummus recipe of chickpeas, tahini, lemon, garlic, salt and pepper and olive oil. Homemade hummus is super simple to make and way cheaper than the packaged stuff…and very tasty! I hope to make my own hummus throughout the summer.
Another snack-food I made was homemade granola bars. These were really easy to make and I had almost all of the ingredients on-hand already, so I didn’t have to buy much else.
I also made my own almond milk! This wasn’t for any other reason than I wanted to try it: it’s not any cheaper for me to make it at home because the almonds I bought weren’t that great of a price. Maybe if I bought them in bulk, it would be worth it.
It was still fun though! I soaked 1 cup of almonds overnight and then drained them and put them in the blender with 3 cups of water, vanilla, cinnamon and agave.
