Egyptian Hummus by Roz Kazaz

Montreal, Quebec, CA


There's nothing more delicious than homemade hummus.
This is the way my mother made it, and it's creamy and fluffy if done right.

Canned chickpeas are fast and work best.
If you use dry chickpeas, they must be soaked overnight and cooked a very long time otherwise they will be dry and hard.

Add salt, garlic and lemon to taste.

To get the creamiest texture and to eliminate bloat (and by-products thereof), just remove chickpea skins first.
This takes time but is a very meditative activity :-)

Bil hana wa shifa!

Quick Pickle Cabbage by Roz Kazaz

Montreal, Quebec, CA


Raw cabbage is no trip, but pickled cabbage is da bomb!
Add to salads or sandwiches, or just enjoy as a side.

I use purple cabbage because of the magnificent shade of fuschia pickling produces, but any cabbage can be used.
Add grated carrots to white cabbage for a classic coleslaw base.

This is the base ingredient for my Hot Pink Coleslaw, guaranteed to convert any salad skeptic! I've uploaded that recipe as well.

Quick Pickle Cabbage is the base ingredient, so I've also uploaded that recipe.
