Fresh & Easy Hummus Shockingly Good

omotosando | Jul 13, 2014 09:20 PM

So I was at Fresh & Easy tonight on La Cienega. I seldom go in there because, frankly, it looks so unappealing -- like a 7-11.

I picked up some Fresh & Easy hummus (the chimichurri flavor) and some Fresh & Easy Roasted Red Pepper Crackers. At first, I wasn't going to get the hummus because the "best consumed by" date was only two days away. But then I saw that it had no preservatives and I thought that only two days of freshness might actually be a good thing.

Well this is definitely, bar none, the best supermarket hummus I have ever had. I topped it off with some aleppo chilli from my spice cabinet to make it even better. The crackers are pretty good also. I also picked up a bottle of La Crema pinot noir, which seemed to be the best (and most expensive) of their limited wine selection and that is decent as well.

Fresh & Easy also had a decent selection of organic vegetables and fruit and I picked up some as well, as well as some Fresh & Easy brand yogurt with fresh berries and granola.

I keep forgetting about this place because, as stated, it looks like a 7-11, but they have some good stuff and it is a quick in and out.
