Hummus

Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip or spread. It’s really tasty and a nice treat on whole wheat pita bread or as a spread on toasted Ezekiel bread. The recipe I found on fatfreevegan.com calls for tahini, but we substituted brown miso adding less than 2 grams of fat to the otherwise fat-free ingredients.  —  Pam served it to a couple of Nikki’s friends and they loved it!

Sofrito

I found  Sofrito when I was searching for Cuban Black Bean recipes. It’s a very simple way to add a lot of Latin flavor to any dish. And something my wife likes, Sofrito isn’t spicy (chili hot). The author’s site states: Sofrito is the secret ingredient in many Latin Caribbean dishes and it’s so easy to make. It’s a versatile, aromatic puree of tomatoes, peppers, cilantro, onions, and garlic. You may use a food processor or blender for desired results. This recipe makes about 1 quart of Sofrito. I scoop 1/2 cup portions into Ziploc sandwich bags and freeze for future cooking.
