Versatile Hummus 

6 Healthy Recipes That Don't Taste Like They're Good for You


Serves: 10 | Prep time: 20 minutes | Start to finish: 30 hours

Ingredients:

- 2 cups garbanzo beans, sprouted and cooked (see pp. 8–11)

- 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar, raw

- 1∕2 cup water

- 1∕4 cup sesame seeds

- 1 Tbsp. olive oil

- 1 Tbsp. lime juice or 1 Tbsp. water with 1 drop lime essential oil

- 3∕4–1 tsp. salt, to taste

- 1∕4 tsp. garlic powder

- 1∕4 tsp. onion powder

- 1∕4 tsp. cumin powder

- 1∕4 tsp. chili powder

For a fun variation, try adding one or several of these:

- 1–2 handfuls spinach

- 1∕2 cup chopped cilantro

- 1 small avocado

- 1∕2–1 small jalapeño

- 1∕4 red bell pepper, chopped more salt to taste

This hummus is perfect because it is heartier than a dressing dip. I like to prepare large batches of garbanzo beans and freeze them so I have them on hand. Helpful hint: 1 cup dry garbanzo beans = 3 cups cooked. Place garbanzo beans and all other ingredients (basic and variations) in a food processor with the “S” blade. Process until smooth. Adjust salt to taste. Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 5 days.
