I've made hummus before with canned garbanzo beans. Since my goal is to see just how cheaply I can keep my lunches I decided to go full tilt and try it with dried beans.Obviously the first difficulty is making sure you plan ahead and soak the beans. The second issue I had was compensating for the fact that since they are packed in liquid i need to add a bit of moisture to the mix. Neither of these were big enough problems to put me off using dried beans.

I made these stuffed dates at work for our full serve case. During the holidays we sell dates stuffed with gorgonzola, but I wanted to try something lighter for the warmer weather.
