Geek Eats makes Hummus Right!
Geek Eats has been a Little Rock staple for over a year now, yet I had not tried their delicious hummus and pesto until recently. This North Little Rock group has been selling at local farmers' markets around the city, and they have been gaining a lot of notoriety. My sister orders their hummus through the Arkansas Food Network, which is a weekly online farmers' market.
A few weeks ago, I was at the Argenta Farmer's Market picking up a few things, when I noticed the Geek Eats booth. I quickly ran over and sampled everything they had to offer. Then, the real problem started. Which ones should I buy?? All the samples were delicious. I especially liked their pesto, which is vegan and incredibly flavorful. I finally settled on the caramelized onion hummus and the pesto. Then, the friendly lady staffing the booth mentioned to me that they have a curry carrot hummus, but it wasn't out for sample. "Give me that too!" I exclaimed! It ended up being my absolute favorite.
I wanted to go home and devour all three of these, but I started to think of what I could make with them. The caramelized onion one was sweet and delicious, and we ended up eating most of it with bell peppers and sriracha.
For the pesto, I started thinking of pizza, naan pizza to be exact. So I made this delicious habanero flat bread pizza.
For the carrot curry hummus, I decided it was so special that it had to go in my birthday grilled cheese!
It also made a great side dish to my chickpea and corn salad. Perfect for pita chips!
I can't recommend Geek Eats enough. Their hummus is out of this world, and the pesto rocks, too. Hunt them down and try their amazing treats as soon as you can!
