Hummus Where The Heart Is - A Review & Give-away

Hummus where the heart is - recipe book
Hummus Where The Heart Is by Dunja Gulin, is a cook-book with a difference, as all the recipes are for, or involve, hummus! The book itself is a cute little number, with a heart shape cut out of the front  cover, which makes it an ideal gift for hummus lovers.

The humble hummus has become an essential item for vegetarians and vegans alike, but the shop bought stuff is not a patch on the homemade variety, not to mention being vastly over packaged and over priced! This book contains an amazing array of cheap, quick and easy to follow hummus recipes, including some using pulses other than chickpeas and others using vegetables to replace the pulses.

Of course, many of Dunja's recipes are still suitable for serving as a dip with breadsticks or slathered on bread(such as onion jam hummus, curry-spiced hummus and a baked aubergine variety), but some of her recipes are meals in their own right rather than just a dip, snack or side dish. Hummus Where the Heart Is also has a chapter on dippers, which covers recipes for focaccia, pittas and sesame grissini. I particularly like the ideas for using up left-over hummus which includes burgers, pizza and stuffed courgettes, but was slightly wary of the hummus dessert and baking recipes! I'll definitely give the fudge cookies a go though.
