50 pounds of chickpeas? hummus recipes

50 pounds of chickpeas – How long will that last? 

bulkchickpeasThis household LOVES hummus. I can’t keep it stocked and most of the time, when I go to get some out of the fridge, there is one or two teaspoons full left and that is it. GRIFFEN !!! – You know that I am talking about you!

This weekend, I picked up 2-25 pound bags of dried chick peas. Tall Man was kind enough to run and pick up my Bountiful Basket order on Saturday morning for me since I am still a little bit under the weather after my surgery. (day 12 post-op!!) THANK YOU LARRY for running errands on your birthday!

Me, being me, decided that they needed to be put in “our family” serving size bags for better storage… I am only 25 pounds into this bulk journey, and we have 20-3 cup bags and a whole bowl soaking for tomorrow’s hummus.  25 pounds to go!!

Here are a few hummus recipes to keep you going this week!  (serve with pita, chips, carrots and bell peppers, use as a spread on sandwiches)
