I had no intention of these turning into anything remotely blog-worthy. It was one of those nights when you’re way too lazy to go grocery shopping, also too lazy to walk a block to the nearest restaurant, and too impatient to wait an hour for delivery. Which is pathetic. But we’ve all been there. (I hope?)
I had this in my kitchen to work with: a two-month-old sweet potato, a zip-loc bag of frozen banana chunks, olive oil, some dried cranberries, pecans, a nearly empty tub of hummus, a couple stray chives, an avocado that won’t be ripe for another three years, and quinoa. I nixed the bananas and rock-hard avocado, and surprising made something so delicious with the rest that I couldn’t resist photographing it and sharing it with you all.
This would work great as a finger food at parties or as an appetizer. It also made for a delicious dinner. As I mentioned, I totally just slapped this thing together, so my ingredient measurements aren’t exact (which is fine, you don’t need to be).
Have you had any accidental kitchen successes?
