Sorry... it's hummus, not humus.

Vegetarian diets make you fart a lot. That's pretty cool.

hummus is made from chick peas or garbanzo beans whatever you want to call them. It is perhaps one of the easiest things to make, with very few ingredients, and you can make vats of it at a a time. Incredibly cheap to make, but as Jared said expensive to buy. All you need is a food processor (cuisinart, I know ben hates to advertise)

I guess I could get a food processor. Would be neat to make stuff instead of buying it, because, duh,

True. I don't want me & Matt to get cancers and hearts disease. I also want us to live for a long time. So, I cook vegetarian most of the time. I make fish and chicken about once a week each though.

For protein, be sure to eat lots of beans and sprouts. Tofu is good too... if you want the tofu to have more of a meat-like texture, buy the firm kind- freeze it and thaw it. I can't explain why that makes it better... it just does. Never forget to press all the water out of the tofu as well.

oh, and you should eat lots of
edamame (steamed, salted soybeans still in their pods) yummy


Congratulations to you! When you eat fewer animal products, after time, you'll feel so much better

you're welcome

you should eat this too... it's heavenly:

Black Bean and Corn Salad

1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels
1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  1. Place lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and cayenne pepper in a small jar. Cover with lid, and shake until ingredients are well mixed.
  2. In a salad bowl, combine beans, corn, avocado, bell pepper, tomatoes, green onions, and cilantro. Shake lime dressing, and pour it over the salad. Stir salad to coat vegetables and beans with dressing, and serve.
