Fail #1. I forgot Dijon mustard and The Captain had to do a 9 o'clock grocery run. He got himself a boozy reward, so don't feel bad for him.
Fail #2. As I gathered ingredients on Easter Sunday I realized I had forgotten THE most major ingredient when making hummus. Chickpeas. I forgot the mother flippin garbanzo beans. What. The. Crap. I did, however, have a can of great northern beans, so I crossed my fingers that they would work.
Fail #3. I completely misread didn't read the instructions for the hummus at all... I threw everything in my vitamix and started blending. I wasn't supposed to add everything. The green onion were supposed to be mixed in after the hummus was smooth.
Fail #4. I added water too quickly after I got impatient adding a tablespoons at a time and I ended up with white bean hummus soup. COME. ON.
Sooooo I went and sat on the couch. Maybe I cried a little, so what?! I'm pregnant I cry 2-3 times an hour. Hormones. Am I right??? And I thought "okay how can I turn this around??" I had baby red potatoes and a delicious white bean green onion "Hummus" with a dressing-like consistency... And it came to me. Potato Salad. Boom.
So here's what I did oh-so-wrong, but tastes oh-so-right!
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added white beans, drained and rinsed
2 large cloves garlic
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped green onions (4 to 5)
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Zest of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon ground turmeric
6 tablespoons water
Throw it all in the blender until pretty and smooth.
12 small red potatoes, diced
Pinch of smoked paprika, for garnish
1 green onion, finely sliced, for garnish
Boil potatoes until fork tender and drain. Once dry, mix with hummus and garnish with paprika and green onion!
Hope you enjoy my fail!!!!!
