Not the state, the country. Carrot hummus, and kidney bean and walnut soup. I’d made that soup years ago, you can read that fascinating entry here, and had always planned to make it again it is so good. Amolesili Lobio. It’s not hard, a little messy but the results are spectacular. My friend Carol was coming over and she’s been on this Eastern European and Silk Road kick so I made it again for her.
I served it topped with chopped walnuts sautéd in butter with coriander. ნამდვილად გემრიელი იყო.
