This irresistibly delicious and rich Chestnut Pomegranate Hummus will be a great addition to your holiday festive menu.
Chestnut Pomegranate Hummus
Hello everyone. I hope the last week before the Christmas holidays has been treating you well. But wait. Is it almost Christmas already?
Every year this time, as a food blogger, I have the same issue. I do have enough recipes to share. I know you would be excited to see them or at least most of them. I don’t have much time left. Let’s be honest: I don’t have enough days in the calendar to squeeze all the unpublished recipes. And I certainly don’t want to stress out because of these blogger’s challenges. That’s Christmas after all, and I want to enjoy it as much as I can.
And what I know for sure that I don’t need any new festive recipes and photographs this year, otherwise my blog will be celebrating holidays until February. There’s my early (and the only one) new year’s resolution: no more Christmas recipes (for the blog) this year, Ben! The most important part is to make my brain stop producing more and more of those ideas.
I am going to do my best by posting a few recipes until Christmas and the remaining before New Year. I might borrow one additional spot in January. I know you won’t mind.
Anyway, I am excited to present this stunner, Chestnut Pomegranate Hummus. Do you share my excitement? It’s super creamy, rich, and easy to make. I accept that a dip made with dried chickpeas is more delicious and creamier than when using canned chickpeas. However, this is that time of the year when little shortcuts are 100% acceptable.
“What about chestnuts?” you might wonder. They make a great addition! While they don’t significantly alter the flavour, they introduce a very subtle and enjoyable sweetness. They also give a smoother texture. What they don’t give is the colour; it’s a little greyish. That’s why I thought that adding some pomegranate kernels would make this dip festive and more appetizing. I (humbly) think I’ve nailed this.
Now I am generously sharing this Chestnut Pomegranate Hummus with you, my friends, hoping you would find a spot for it in your menu.
Cheers and see you soon.
