Extra Easy hummus

plant based recipes sauces & spreads snacks Oct 10, 2010

This extra easy hummus is a good source of plant based protein and tastes delicious! It's great to have as a spread or dip with crackers and veggie sticks to beat those mid-afternoon energy lows and cravings. It's also fantastic as a spread in sandwiches or wraps (or on our local favourite, roasted breadfruit)! 



1 ½ cup cooked chickpeas (pre-soaked overnight or longer)

1 clove of raw (or roasted) garlic, crushed (or two if you love "garlicky" food like me)

2 tsps ground cumin (optional - play around with flavours like rosemary, chadon beni, parsley, sundried tomatoes, spinach, etc)

½ tsp unrefined sea salt

2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsps lemon juice (for that extra “zing”!)

2 tbsp raw sesame seeds or tahini (for extra calcium/magnesium)

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/3 cup red bell pepper, chopped (keep it raw for more nutrition or roast it for extra flavour)

½ tsp cayenne or chili powder

Water or bone broth as needed



In a food processor (or blender), add all ingredients and process.  Blend on low speed, gradually adding water until desired consistency is achieved.  ENJOY!
