Green Monster Hummus

May 15, 2016

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m back with a 2 in 1 recipe that’s healthy, easy peasy and packed with protein! Hummus is a delicious, creamy and quick to prepare dip or spread. You can eat hummus with crudités, bread, spread on sandwiches or even use it as a creamy, protein rich sauce for a pasta dish.

To add an interesting twist to an old beloved recipe, I’ve added peas to the fiesta. Peas are starchy, but high in fiber, protein, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin K, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc and lutein. Check out more about pea power here.

Hummus a great way to eat legumes during summer and is also kids-friendly, win-win all around! This green monster hummus recipe is ready in less than 5 minutes and we love how it tastes.

You may cook the chickpeas yourself in boiling water for one or two hours or until they’re soft or use them canned. Chickpeas should be soaked overnight before cooking, and the longer you let them soak, the quicker they will cook.

A quick tip on how to get hummus very creamy: process the tahini with the lemon juice before adding the rest of the ingredients. This gets you the creamiest of creamiest base to start your hummus with. This is the stuff dreams are made of, not kidding! 😉
