thirteenfridays: May 2022

Only one Friday 13th this year that also happens to fall on international hummus day!

We decided to celebrate the date with a simple hummus based meal consisting of a 13 ingredient hummus (Chickpeas, Tahini, Garlic, Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, Water, Salt, Pepper, Sumac & four seed mix topping: Sunflower, Sesame, Pumpkin, Golden Linseed, Sumac). Served with a 13 ingredient salad (Little gem, Rocket, 13 Asparagus spears, 13 Purple sprouting broccoli spears, Cress, Spinach, Jack in the hedge, Pennywort, 13 pieces of Haloumi, 13 baby plum tomatoes, Wild garlic flowers, 13 Olives, Chive flowers), 13 crudités of carrot & 13 of cucumber and 13 slices of Bara Menyn sourdough bread.

For dessert we found a recipe for dessert hummus, using peanut butter and almond milk instead of tahini and lemon and with no garlic of course! Although the hummus recipe didn’t use 13 ingredients itself, we served it with a selection of 13 things – 13 ginger biscuits, 13 Strawberries, 13 Blueberries, 13 slices each of Pineapple, Apple, Banana, Pear, Melon & Fig. 13 chocolate buttons 13 walnuts, 13 Almonds and 13 Hazelnuts
