Best Basic Hummus – Le meilleur Houmous classique

Hummus is proof that some of the best things to eat are usually the easiest ones to make: very few ingredients, no cooking, just some mixing 🙂 I love my hummus classic, the traditional way, but you can experiment with different spices or flavors (add some beetroot for instance for a sweet touch or black olives for the tapenade effect). I actually used to not like it because I was used to the industrial ones… the homemade-part actually makes a big difference! Serve with meat (lamb in particular), raw veggies or just some warm flatbreads! I served mine for brunch for a Mediterranean touch, with some paprika fried prawns, scrambled eggs with fresh herbs and some fresh baguette, yummiest thing in the morning!

It’s kinda like this comfy cashmere sweater you wear at home on sundays 🙂 Continue reading “Crispy sesame tofu with spicy veggie, Tofu grillé au sésame sur légumes épicés”

Yes, you read right! no pan, no messiness here! you put it all together and you throw it in the oven, it’s that simple! Enjoy 🙂 Continue reading “Pull-apart Brioche Pain Perdu”
