trader joe's everything but the bagel seasoning oil-free hummus + a 25 year old sundress

I have this old green sundress that my college roommate gave me after she grew bored of it. It was just little too big and a lot too long, so I safety pinned the straps together so I could wear it without getting an indecent exposure ticket and then hemmed it with some iron-on stitch witchery to keep it from dragging the ground. I loved that thing and wore it all over Europe a few months later. It was 1998 and already four years out of style, but that’s how I roll, it seems. In fact, 21 years later - two and a half decades out of style - that dress is still hanging in my closet waiting for warmer weather, because again, that’s how I roll. Unapologetically cobbled together in something familiar and blissfully ignorant of current trends, which is why I surprised myself by hopping on the Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning bandwagon. Granted, I’m two years late, so I’m still very much me, but a more fashionable version of the old me - at least culinarily.

I’ve seen people use this stuff on avocado toast, quinoa dishes, and to make an everything bagel taste even more everything bagel-like, but I wanted to do something more basic. More familiar. More no-longer-fashionable-but-still-beloved-old-green-sundress, if you will. To me, there is nothing more basic and familiar than smooth, tangy hummus. I almost feel like I’m cheating by posting this, as it’s nothing more than a simple oil-free hummus recipe with a bit of the Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning added, but alas, I’m doing it anyway, because I’d definitely be cheating you if I didn’t.

the fancied up old green sundress of hummus, if you will

notes: If you want wicked smooth hummus, peel the chickpeas before using. I use my mini kitchen-aid food processor because it blends faster in the smaller vessel, but a standard processor will work just as well with a little more blending time.
