Zone 9b August Planting Guide

2022-07-31T11:16:31-07:00July 31st, 2022|

With the heat of August upon us, now is the time to begin preparation of our cool season garden. The hot summer sun brings hearty vegetable yields and flowers in full color! Now is a great time to ensure your garden is receiving sufficient water and that no garden pests have made their way to your precious plants. Consider placing an order for your cool season seeds from a local heirloom provider. Hardy vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, kale and radishes thrive in the cool season and the most dazzling varieties tend to sell out quickly!

One of my favorite fruit to enjoy is a decadent ripe mango. My mouth is watering just thinking about the sweet sticky juice and rich flesh. Combining mango with heart-healthy turmeric, this hummus recipe is a sweet version of the savory classic. Great as a stand alone option, I also enjoy pairing this hummus in protein bowls with quinoa, flaky fish, and lots of fresh veggies.

Chocolate Hummus

While hummus in our household is most often of the savory variety, the occasional sweet treat is always welcome. Full of protein and no processed sugar, chocolate hummus is one way to flip the script on all your previous ideas of what you can make with garbanzo beans. I added local honey, vanilla extract, and instant espresso powder for a rich dip that goes well with fresh strawberries, bananas, and of course your favorite cookie.

Herb roasted garlic pairs with Yotam Ottolenghi's lemon paste for a savory combination on the classic hummus dip. The bright and concentrated flavor of the lemon paste elevates the hummus for a mouth-watering combination that is best served with fresh herbs and warm flatbread.

Taco Hummus

2022-05-22T18:31:10-07:00February 26th, 2022|

A fun spin on a classic favorite, Taco Hummus brings all the flavors of Taco Tuesday in a healthy meal option served with a side of chips.

Fresh Pea Hummus

2022-05-22T18:50:06-07:00February 11th, 2022|

Fresh sweet shelling peas picked straight off the vine bring an earthy green freshness to hummus. Seasoned with fresh dill, lemon, and a small garlic clove, this hummus brings out the subtle flavors of spring (which comes early in Southern California). Since we plant peas for the spring and fall seasons, this is a favorite hummus version throughout the cool seasons.
