Wild Garlic Hummus

Wild Garlic Hummus

Spread Hummus Not Hate 😉

When I turned towards plant based lifestyle hummus has been accompanying me ever since.
I would call hummus a fast food from the good food list. And I truly think it has been underestimated in most people´s eyes. This spread can be a cover on your bread instead of a cheese slice or it can be a side dish with veggies or even why not to have a king spot on your main course. You can never go wrong with adding it into your meals, you will gain some health properties as a bonus.

What I usually do is drain and rinse a can of chickpeas leaving a little liquid on the side to add it for a better and smoother blending. Then adding some veggies like zucchini or oven-baked paprika or in this case wild garlic along with the chickpeas, some tahini, maybe a bit of a lemon juice if I happen to have and some salt and spices according to my liking. Blend it all smooth and enjoy straight away. Literally takes maximum 5 minutes to make and your body will be thankful for nutritious whole foods.

I personally do not add any oil into my hummus. Oftentimes, I sprinkle a spoonful or two on top when I want to make it look prettier or in case of a photoshoot. Then I like to use sesame oil that has balancing properties according to Ayurvedic medicine. In everyday life I eat quite a lot of nuts and I prefer to get my fats from wholefoods rather than in a processed liquid form. I am not following a high carb low fat diet nor the opposite, I try to keep everything in some sort of a balance.

 

When Life Turns Green

In TCM(Traditional Chinese Medicine) chickpeas are considered sweet and neutral in temperature. They are known for their ability to tonify digestive organs and qi/energy, resolve dampness and promote detoxification.  Rich in protein they will be a good addition in your diet.

Wild garlic is a perfect herb to support your health during the spring time when it is in season. More about its health benefits you can find under my wild garlic pesto post. 😉
