Easy Best Hummus Recipe
Hummus prices are insane – it’s basically just refried beans. Not just that, some have unhealthy ingredients. For example, we used to buy Athenos hummus – after all, it looks so Greek, doesn’t it?
But as I was researching for my book You’re not fat, You’re Toxic, and learned how toxic so-called “natural” flavorings are, I became concerned that they were in Athenos hummus. So I phoned the company to find out what the natural flavorings were made from. Imagine my shock when the phone operator answered with “Kraft. How can I help you?”. Ugh – another multinational corporation.
In answer to my question as to what the natural flavorings were, I was told something along the lines that it was proprietary information (that is, a trade secret). So, let me get this right – they expect me to eat their food, but they won’t tell me what I’m eating? That’s when I learned to make my own hummus.
You can save a ton of money with this super easy healthy recipe. You can make piles of it for very little cost. That way you can have it even as a main meal. You can freeze containers of it to save you time. Just remember to take it out of the freezer earlier when you want to defrost it to eat.
Lemons / Lemon juice
Celtic sea Salt
Soak chickpeas for 8 hours or so in good water (eg reverse osmosis or spring water). This sprouts them so that they are much better for you and easier to digest. If you don’t have time to prepare them immediately, strain out the water and keep them stored in the fridge. Rinse them once a day, as they are now living, growing plants and will be producing waste products.
Cover chickpeas in water plus an extra bit, add celtic sea salt, bring to boil, cover and simmer for two hours. Strain out the water, or better yet, have the water boiled down sufficiently that that there is very little left, so you don’t pour all the vitamins and minerals in the water down the sink. Blend in a food processor. Add salt and fresh lemon juice to taste.
Note: If you are on a raw food diet, just omit the cooking part.
As I teach in my diet and health makeover book, You’re not Fat, You’re toxic, you can be creative with most dishes. If you like the taste of something, put it in. Here are some other food you could add, in whatever quantities you like the taste of:
Raw sesame seeds
Sun-dried tomatoes (soaked one hour)
Hot sauce (for those who don’t have digestive tract health problems)
Garlic is Not recommended
As I say in my book, I recommend everyone avoid garlic It desynchronizes brain waves. Yes, it kills bacteria, so may be useful for when you are sick. But anything that kills bugs, is also bad for your own body cells. Use ginger instead, or just retrain your taste buds to taste the food in the dish.
