This recipe has been in my brain for a while.
For weeks it’s been taunting me, begging to be flushed out, poured into my food processor and immortalized in internet print.
And this weekend three failed attempts to make IPA lemon bars that never really gave me the results I was hoping for coupled with this tweet:
gave this hummus it’s shot.
And I’m so glad that the stars didn’t align and the beer cooking God’s didn’t smile upon the IPA lemon bars (which have become my culinary nemesis, mocking me with vague imperfections) because this hummus was exactly what I wanted on a hot day. It didn’t last long.
For this recipe, I used one of my favorite IPA’s, Ballast Point’s Sculpin IPA. A beautiful example of an IPA, even if this one was sans Habaneros.
