Book Description

What Others Are Saying About More Than Hummus

"contains everything you need to know about hummus.

Canning has done a very nice job putting this ebook together. She even got the Table of Contents to show up on the Menu link - rare in Kindle cookbooks. Kudos for a job well done! Five stars. Highly recommended!
"   ***** 'Grandma'

"This book made me want to get straight into the kitchen and make some hummus, which I haven't done for years." ***** 'Emilcatty'

This book is not just about hummus. It is about the wonderful garbanzo bean, or the chick pea as it is called around the world.

Not only does this book give 25 mouth watering classic hummus recipes from around the world, but you will also read about the health and nutritional benefits of including the garbanzo bean in your diet and making it a regular presence on your table and in your life.

When you fully understand the nutritional power that this little, harmless bean packs into it's punch, you will never have a hummusless house again.

Millions of people all around the world are realising that this Super Food is not only great for you but death defyingly delicious too.

"I will be looking out for other cookbooks by this author, particularly if they are vegetarian ones! " *****EmilCatty

When you make your own hummus, your friends will be dropping in unexpectedly, thinking of excuses to stop by, just so you can take out your hummus and have a dip with them.

No family gathering will be the same again, as the hummus steals the show every time..... and there's more

As I sit here eating hummus for breakfast (AGAIN!) I had to laugh at Katherine Canning's statement early in the text of MORE THAN HUMMUS CLASSIC HUMMUS RECIPES AND SO MUCH MORE that one batch would feed 8 - or 4 in her household! I get just about three meals out of a batch and there is just me to eat it most of the time.

Believe it or not, there was a time that I did not like hummus. My daughter would buy a tiny, kind of expensive little container of it every time a friend came to visit from the UK, but frankly I just didn't like the look of it. Then, when my granddaughter and I were homeschooling we studied the Silk Road and the Middle East. As part of our investigations we studied the food of the Middle East (if you don't understand something about the food, you won't understand the culture either) and so of course we researched and made a Middle Eastern dinner - hummus, tabbouleh, Felafel balls, Labane, olives, a little salad and of course homemade Pita Bread. We invited relatives and threw a party. Dinner was a huge success and hummus has made at least a weekly appearance in my house ever since. There are only a very few things that I buy canned other than anchovies: tomatoes and chickpeas. Oh yes, I do cook my own chickpeas from scratch in big batches and keep some in the freezer, but sometimes I am lazy or I want hummus NOW, not when the beans thaw!

MORE THAN HUMMUS CLASSIC HUMMUS RECIPES AND SO MUCH MORE contains everything you need to know about hummus. Do not laugh or turn up your nose when you get to the recipe for Peanut Butter Hummus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really really good! February 23, 2012
By Emily
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book made me want to get straight into the kitchen and make some hummus, which I haven't done for years.

The recipes are well formatted and all sound delicious.

I liked it that the author included information on why chickpeas are good for you and also why you need to soak them.

I will be looking out for other cookbooks by this author, particularly if they are vegetarian ones!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Recipes - Not a One-Note Ingredient! March 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of hummus (and the other related food, falafel) but have relied on commercial products while wondering if I couldn't just make it myself. Along comes "More Than Hummus" and what a revelation it is on making hummus (with and without tahini, canned or dried garbanzos) and some excellent hummus options I'd never considered: Sun-Dried Tomato, Greek Olive, Avocado, Roasted Red Pepper.

This recipe ebook is well-written, thoughtfully laid out and Ms. Canning has a sense of humor that engages the reader (esp. moms). Don't skip this ebook thinking "It's just hummus" because true to the title, it really is "More Than Hummus." I'm hoping for more recipes and ideas from Ms. Canning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hummus...Classic Recipes and more March 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was Hummus challenged. Honestly I had NO idea up till a year or
so ago what Hummus even WAS! Now, here I am, making my own. This
is chocked full of great recipes, I don't think Ms.Canning missed
a beat as far as I can tell. I had no idea that there were SO many
things you could do with the humble Chick Pea! If you are a party
giving person, or you love dip kind of things, this could be a great
book for you to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this cookbook! March 15, 2012
By Sue B.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely compilation of recipes, with lots of variations so everyone should be able to find something to their taste. I especially got a kick out of the author noting that using a Kindle in the kitchen necessitates putting it into a protective cover. I grew up in a home where food and its preparation were a common topic, so I can relate to the author and her children presenting their creation for a 'tasting'. I look forward to using this book.

Hadn't tried to make Hummus till I got this book. It is so easy and nutritous and the best one was the Peanut Butter Hummus. Even my husband loved it and asked for more.

Some great simple recipes. I was pleased with those not requiring Tahinni as it is not
always available when wintering abroad. Love Hummus for snacks and afternoon munchies.

More About the Author

Hi I'm Katherine and I am NOT a 'writer'. But I do like to write about food. My food in my world. The food that I share with my family and friends on both happy and sad occasions. The food that I prepare for fun, to nourish, to please, to humor, to entice, to nurse, to celebrate and to love.

If my children are what they eat, then my children are a combination of what I cook for them and, what I teach them to cook for themselves.

On a voluntary basis, I teach evening adult 'introduction to cooking' classes. Anything from how to boil an egg upwards (but not too far up). My target audience primarily consists of people who have never been shown the basics. The less advantaged in our society.

Through necessity I keep things simple. I will never be allowed inside the walls of a Cordon Bleu school nor will I be nominated for a Nobel prize in the literature category.

Over the years I have written thousands of pages of notes in preparation for my classes. My husband edits my ramblings and my children take a vengeful delight in finding spelling mistakes. Even spell chequers don't pick up on some of my clangers, so be warned.

My first collection happens to be Hummus. It is easy to teach, requires only a few ingredients, and I can introduce it at the most elementary level as something different and interesting, while being covertly nutritious. Hummus ticks all the boxes.

I did not invent hummus, nor did I invent the recipes. These are recipes that I have tried, tested, tweaked some and changed a few, over the years.

But hey, when just one of my students tells me that they have put some hummus and bread inside their child's lunch box instead of Oreos (only because they have run out of the afore mentioned cookies), I smile.
