HEALTH BENEFITS OF HUMMUS:
- Hummus has tons of plant-based protein.
- It has lots of fiber.
- It’s easy on blood sugar thanks to being low on the glycemic index.
- It has heart-healthy fats.
HOW TO MAKE HUMMUS:
Hummus may seem complicated, but it’s super easy to make!
- You can make your beans from scratch or buy them canned.
- It’s easiest to make in a food processor, but if you don’t mind working in smaller batches, a blender can work just as well. (Immersion blenders are great too!)
- You just dump everything in a food processor and blend until smooth!
- You can easily adjust flavors by adding more of any ingredients used in the recipe.
INGREDIENTS FOR HUMMUS:
- While the ingredients differ from recipe to recipe, (you can find a bunch of them here) the base is always the same. Cooked chickpeas!
- Often, tahini is used for savory hummus. It gives it a nice “tang”.
- In savory hummus, garlic and other spices are also often used.
- Made as a dessert, hummus is also very versatile. Chocolate, in some form, is often used.
- Natural sweeteners seem to give a better depth of flavor in hummus.
WHAT TO SERVE THIS WITH?
- Mild-flavored crackers
- Pita (whole grain)
- Pretzels (whole grain)
