Make EXPERIENCE NUTRITION Super Simple Organic Hummus
I’m excited to share with you the same hummus recipe we made a few years ago at the Super Bowl XLIV VIP Tailgate Party for the Super Bowl in Miami. Now, you can make it, too. Scroll down for a fun behind the scene photo from the VIP Tailgate Party.
Super Simple Organic Hummus
Step 1: Blend all ingredients in Vitamix or food processor, until smooth
- 2 cups cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
• 1 cup cooked garbanzo beans (soak beans overnight, cook for about 1.5 hours with 1/2 strip kombu seaweed for tenderizing. If you do not have time to cook your own garbanzo beans, use a can of beans, such as Eden Organic Garbanzo Beans that have been cooked with kombu
- 1/3 cup chickpea water
- 3 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste or sesame seeds)
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2 TBSP fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/8 tsp cumin (grind fresh cumin seeds)
- 1/8 tsp coriander (grind the seeds from cilantro)
Step 2: After the hummus has been blended, taste and add any more of the ingredients to your taste.
Step 3: Add any of the following and blend again: Cilantro, dill, sautéed onions and garlic, sun-dried tomatoes or olives. Remember, you can make hummus with any kind of beans.
Step 4: Experiment with your own hummus creations. Once you know how to make this basic hummus, try making it with black beans or navy beans or a combination of your favorite beans.
