Homemade Hummus

Some things are just better when they are home made. For me, hummus is at the top of the list. It is super easy and quick to make if you have a decent food processor, and the best part is that you know exactly what is in it without scouring the label and finding things you would prefer not to eat.

His new cookbook, Jerusalem, is a work of art, full of stories of his home city (which is very topical in the current political climate) and stunning recipes. Though it has sections for meat and fish, as usual he takes good care of us vegetarians with beautiful dishes based on the freshest of produce.

Although recent months have been crazy busy with study and prepping for our final exams, we have still had the chance to get out and about for the occasional study break and finally got the chance to try a local vegetarian cafe that has been on our list for ages.  A girl has to eat, and as you can see from the pic below, taking a study break to eat made me super happy!
