To start this recipe off, I want to show you guys something. Let's go back a couple of months time and take a look at one of my first posts: hummus. I look back just a few months back and see already how much I've learnt in so little time. I mean, really, look at that disgusting mess that I called "hummus". I was so proud of myself too, really, I thought I was the cat's meow. Ha, I was quite naive. I mean, not to say I'm so amazing now, but I mean comparing that swamp meat to this, oh yeah... this was heavenly. I mean, it was smoothe, LOOKED and TASTED like hummus, and was just blissful. Really, I'm not the BIGGEST fan of hummus, but this hit the nail on the head, this is THE recipe for hummus. It was insanely delicious, oh yeah, this recipe is certainly a keeper, and will definitely be made time and time again.
