Cedar's All Natural Roasted Baba Ghannouj
Cedar's All Natural Roasted Red Pepper Hommus.
These were the last two flavors of hummus I had tried from my WF's splurge a couple weeks ago (and actually the two I sampled in the store) so I felt pretty confident in my love for them when I opened my containers at home. Well, sadly, the Baba Ghannouj ('Gah-noosh' - for those of you who aren't familiar with that word and have no idea how to pronounce it) was a disappointment. I don't know if I was overly enchanted with it in the store or this batch was just slightly different. I noticed in the ingredients that it contained chickpeas, which I think was partially to blame for my dislike of it. Call me weird, but I can taste differences in even dried chickpeas (but especially canned v dried) when they are cooked up, and there is a certain flavor that sometimes appears in a bag of chickpeas that is most unpleasant to me. And that flavor was in the baba ghannouj. Whatever it was, it was not my cup-o-tea this time.
BUT, the Roasted Red Pepper Hummus did NOT disappoint. This was was just as delicious from first bite to last. So good in fact that I went back before the sale went off and picked up two more for a special occasion. It's so creamy, just a little sweet and lots of flavor. It made me want to experiment all over again with trying to make a good homemade roasted red pepper hummus. It was so good and the best out of all 4 flavors that I took a picture of it, just cause it was the winner. :) (The garlic lover's hummus came in second.)
