French Fries, Hummus, and other Procrastination Projects

I apologize for my absence of posting.  Law school will do that.  Be forewarned: There will be more delays in the upcoming weeks as I attempt to finish law school and graduate in one (sane) piece.  But I’m here now!!  I’m back, procrastinating once again, putting off writing my essays because I want to engage in something more “life-giving”: food!

I made French fries from scratch (with coconut oil)!  Instead of the double fry, I fried them for 6 minutes, then I let them cool.  Then I put some in the freezer and I finished off the rest in the oven and then rubbed them in a herb mixture (tarragon, basil, marjoram, rosemary, dill, sea salt) that I got from one of the Fresh Restaurants cookbooks.  Can someone say healthy AND vegan?!! I also made hummus!  And spiralized zucchini spaghetti!  And a cool quinoa summer salad from the Vegetarian’s Complete Quinoa Cookbook.  Take a look!

The recipe for the fries can be found here.

For the hummus, I adapted the recipe from the Ten Talents cookbook and the Vitamix cookbook.  You just need 2 cans of chickpeas, 1 tsp of cumin, 4 gloves of garlic, salt (to taste), 1/4 cup olive oil and 2 tbsp of lemon juice.  Give it a whirl in the blender and you’re done!
