toasted walnut enchilada hummus with cilantro + lime

Two recipes in one: toasty, nutty hummus drizzled with a fast and foolproof spicy sauce. Super addicting! Full recipe at www.thepigandquill.com. #vegan #superbowl #snacks #recipe

Oh yay! You guys are still here. Meaning my affinity for hot dogs (and a decidedly Americasian interpretation, at that) didn’t scare you away. I knew you could hang. As your reward, this week we’re talking more Superbowl-ready eats that are borderline goofy (enchilada sauce on toppa hummus? she dun lost her shit!) but silly delicious all the same. You’ll see what I mean when we get into the nitty gritty later on. And really, is it even that weird? It’s clearly not bizarre enough to warrant the gibberish I keep slapping in between all these parentheses (like this crap — which is here solely for the purpose of example), but I feel a little insecure every time I post something that’s not, like, THE Trending Item on Pinterest.

In that rare moment of calm and restraint when I used the word “totes,” like, maybe once every other post. Or, you know, before the wheels fell completely off and we found ourselves tobogganing through this very metaphor. Anyway, so if you’re just joining us, waaaaay back in Jan I made the (pretty loosey goosey) resolution to consume fewer refined sugars/carbohydrates, artificial sweeteners, caffeinated beverages and conventionally farmed meats and consume more whole grains, organic produce, wild and sustainably harvested seafood, humanely raised meat and all that good stuff. And how’m I doing? You guuuuyyyyyssssssss, I am suuur tuuurtally killing it! I mean, all things in moderation, but would you believe that I’ve had exactly two sodas this year (all-natural root beer, … Read More
