IKEA Knife Magnet

by Lucky Red Hen on February 29, 2012

Posting this from my phone because I a) was just in the kitchen cutting pita bread for my basil laden hummus, and b) I’m fighting with my computers right now.

I LURV my new IKEA knife magnet instead of the knife block. It takes up less counter space (need a little empty space in front of them), is about $9, you can see exactly what you’re getting (instead of pulling knives out to figure out which one’s which), and it’s like magic!


My hummus recipe in food processor:
2 cans garbanzo beans, mostly drained
fresh basil (or from the tube)
3+ garlic cloves, minced with press
fresh 1/2 lemon juice plus zest
salt & pepper to taste
olive oil to desired consistency


I could’ve taken a more appetizing photo of my hummus, but I didn’t. It’s good. WAY good.

OK, I think I want the knife thing. My block has become more of a nuisance to me. Mmmmmmm ……. the hummus sounds delicious. I’ll definitely try it!

I miss your hummus.

Sarah, you’ll dig the knives on the wall and clear up some counter space at the same time!

Britanny, with the recipe, you can have it any time you want :D

important question, i am still looking for the perfect hummus recipe. i have a husband that is a baby with lemons, is this pretty lemon-ey or not so much? -vanessa @inevergrewup

Omit the zest and use only as much juice as you want. The citric adds a bite, not so much a flavor unless you use a bunch. The basil helps mask the lemon too!
