Hummus Potstickers

Hummus FilledAh….food that begin with P…Plums, Pesto, Pears, Popcorn, Pepitas, PEANUT BUTTER! The delicious choices tempt any potluck creator. For this potluck, I requested that guests bring a dish that features a “P” and a Poem: Poem and P Party.

Last week, I whipped up some “hummus” using a canp party potstickers of marinated bean salad from TJs(chickpeas, red kidneys, white beans, with spices) a tablespoon of seasame seed, a clove of garlic…and then a tablespoon of olive oil. Using won ton wrappers, I filled them up with the mixture and baked them for 30 minutes at 425, adding a white egg wash with a little butter after 15 minutes. They turned out crispy, lovely! Served up with Sirachi Jam.

Other goodies served up:

The Potato Eaters….by Leonard E. Nathan

Sometimes, the naked taste of potato
reminds me of being poor.
The first bites are gratitude,
the rest, contented boredom.
The little kitchen still flickers
like a candle-lit room in a folktale.
Never again was my father so angry,
my mother so still as she set the table,
or I so much at home.
