To all my readers, I want to wish you all a “Happy 2018!”.  With the new year, I know many of you have made some resolutions to live a healthier and happier life.  That being said, I wanted to start the first recipe of the year with this oil free hummus. Traditional hummus is actually made with chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini (sesame) and olive oil.  I wanted to make a sesame and oil free version for all of you.  This was also a chance for me to play with a new ingredient, hemp seeds.  Hemp seeds is a good source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. One Omega-6 fatty acid is Gamma-Linolenic acid, which has also been proven to naturally balance hormones (This also includes controlling inflammation and body temperature).  With a few experimentations with a few ingredients, I wounded up with a hummus recipe that is delicious and oil free.  

New year, new ingredients and new recipes, enjoy!

Oil Free Hummus Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of cooked organic chickpeas (canned is fine)
  • 1/4 cup of shelled raw organic hemp seed
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup of aquafaba (aka:chickpea water)
  • sea salt to taste

Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients together in a blender (or food processor).
  2. I like to blend until the mixture is smooth but you can very well just pulse it a few times to get a chunkier hummus.

This recipe makes 2 servings.
