My family has a real taste for hummus – we will dig in to a container of Haig’s or a batch of homemade hummus like nobody’s business! When my husband saw a tip in a running magazine about substituting celery and carrots for bread, crackers, and chips for the dipping, we gave it a try and really enjoyed it. But how could we bulk buy on the veggies and make them last in the fridge?
Turns out you can keep fresh celery, carrots and radishes crisp much longer if you wash and chop them, then store them in water in the fridge. Voila! Chip replacements that stay crunchy much longer.
Now if only I could get the hummus to last that long…..
(Want a bonus tip? Here’s where I got my recipe for a super easy hummus when I ran out of tahini.)
