Hummus

Hummus is a delicious and "multi-talented" dish. We love it with veggies sticks, on Corn Thins with avocado, atop a baked potato, and we even thin it with lemon juice or water to make a salad dressing.

Hummus (Serves 2 - 4)

  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1-28 oz. (or 2 – 15 oz.) cans of cooked garbanzo beans, drain off half the liquid
  • 2 tablespoons tahini or 1/2 cup unhulled sesame seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons umeboshi paste or 3/4 teaspoon sea salt plus 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup stock from the cooked beans or purified water

In a small bowl, juice the lemon and add the peeled garlic. Set aside for 5 minutes. This takes the edge off the raw garlic for a smoother tasting hummus.

 

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend thoroughly until a smooth paste is achieved.

 

Add additional vegetable stock or purified water if the mixture is too thick and chunky.

 

Flavouring options:

  • Roasted Red Pepper
  • Roasted Garlic
  • 1/2 cup cooked beets plus an extra sprinkle of sea salt
