You might not be able to dine in at your favorite restaurants right now because of coronavirus, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get top-quality hummus at home. Celebrity chef Eric Ripert took to Twitter to share a tutorial for this easy dish you can make with pantry staples.
Here’s what you need: chickpeas, tahini, water, extra virgin olive oil, lemon, za’atar, herb de Provence, chili pepper, garlic powder, fine sea salt and a blender. That’s it. You should have most of these ingredients lying around the house already, but if you absolutely need to go to the grocery store, consider these shopping tips to make the most of your trip.
Embracing shelf-stable items like canned beans, vegetables, soups, fish and meat is always a good idea, especially for nights when you could use a little convenience. Next time you need to make a meal in a pinch, here are some quick dinner dishes you can make out of cans.
