With Shanghai's fast paced life and metropol'ish lifestyle there is nothing better than getting together with good friends at someone's home. No crowds, no queues, no hazzle, no noise.
To night I'm meeting some of my favorite Shanghai girls to catch-up and discuss the life as being Young Professionals in Shanghai (aaaand probably a few other things as well).
Being a vegetarian is such a good "excuse" for bringing some of my favorite food to dinners: Salad & Hummus Dip!
To night's Hummus version is a Protein Rich Hummus - oh so yummy, oh so filling & oh so healthy.
1 can of chickpeas ready-to-eat (approx. 250 g drained weight)
1/2 can of lentils ready-to-eat (approx. 150 g drained weight)
2 cloves of garlic
15 almonds slightly roasted on a dry pan
1/2 cup of olive oil
1/2 cup of water
A dash of fresh lemon
A dash of tabasco or some fresh chili
Mix in a blender or food-processor but don't add all liquids at once. Add more if necessary. You can decide the olive oil/water proportion yourself. Some prefer only oil.
Blend & enjoy as a meat-replacement in a salad or as a sandwich spread
