Today’s prompt – Fancy but frugal
Today I made a lovely fancy but frugal brunch for myself of homemade houmous stuffed aubergine.
I pricked the aubergine with a fork and placed it in the oven straight onto the shelf for 30 minutes at 180°C and made my houmous in the food processor.
I used a tin of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), garlic powder, tahini, salt, lemon juice, liquid smoke and a little of the the left over chickpea water (aquafaba) from the tin in place of oil.
I don’t follow any amounts I just put in everything and then taste and add a little more of something if it needs ramping up a bit. After that I cut the aubergine in half add the houmous and a little smoked paprika on too and enjoy!
