A new dip born of leftovers…

Just like the dip I recently posted, this one (the orange one sitting within the straight homous above) was the result of blending leftovers from a recent meal. And will now form a dip recipe in its own right in my kitchen. 

I made myself a meal of leftovers one evening…I started with chopped red onions, which I cooked in coconut oil, over a medium heat, until they became lovely soft and starting to brown; I then added chopped garlic and red peppers, and cooked for a bit longer; then added some of my rose harissa spice mix, and cooked for a minute, before adding washed and drained chickpeas, and cooked it all through together. 

I ate this with some freshly cooked farro and quinoa, but sadly I have no photos as I just got on and ate it!

I then put the leftovers into my blender with lemon juice and tahini and whizzed it into a smooth dip, and put it in the fridge overnight for the flavours to develop – the outcome is a lovely flavoursome homous. And I mean really REALLY tasty! 

There really is nothing better than leftovers, the flavours are always more developed!

I hope you’ve all had a good week, and have a lovely weekend ahead of you. I’m taking my dip over to Fiesta Friday, co hosted this week by the lovely Judi and Maggie, have fun!

    How gorgeous! I have got to take a page from you and try whizzing leftovers into dip. I sometimes add them to my smoothies and to scrambled eggs for breakfast, but this sounds so marvelous! I’m loving the spice mix, too! 🙂

    Gorgeous presentation, Elaine! Hummm I need to try your rose harissa spice mix as well as your new dip. Leftovers are the best, aren’t they? I love how you can create something new out of them but I think you may be the queen of that 🙂

    Thanks for sharing and happy Fiesta Friday! 🙂

    What you call leftovers, I would call gastronomic masterpieces in my kitchen! 😉

    You know I am absolutely in love with those rose petals, right? Wait until I get my hands on some…. you just wait! 😉

    Every time I make a dip I can’t stop thinking about you! Another delicious sounding and looking dip and I wish I had a bowl for lunch and some dread and veg to dunk! You make me hungry 🙂
