Hummus/bean Dip Recipes
0

6 posts in this topic

Here are a couple of recipes for hummus or hummus-like bean dips. Enjoy!

Hummus with Herbs and Spices

2 cups cooked chickpeas plus 1/4 cup cooking liquid OR 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed, plus 2 Tbsp. lemon juice and 2 Tbsp. water

1/2 cup tahini

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup chopped scallions (green and white parts)

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 tsp. ground cumin (preferably roasted)

salt to taste

Puree chickpeas, liquid, tahini, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Stir in scallions, parsley, and cumin. Add salt to taste (possibly unnecessary if using canned beans). Thin with water or chickpea cooking liquid if desired.

Here's another recipe that was posted on the On the Diet column at the Blood Type Diet website (www.dadamo.com). It has a totally different consistency than the above recipe. You can adjust the proportions as you prefer. (For instance, if you just want to eat a little bit as a snack, use all the oil and tahini, but if you want to serve it as the main protein source at a meal, scale the oil and tahini WAY back to about 2 tablespoons each!) I find that pinto beans are especially deliious in this recipe, and I don't use all the garlic.

1 can black-eyed peas, black beans, aduki, whatever's beneficial -- it works with ANY cooked bean

2/3 cup tahini

2/3 cup olive oil

juice of 1 lemon (or 1 1/2 limes)

4 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp sea salt

Put the lemon, olive oil, garlic & sea salt into the food processor and whiz to let the salt start dissolving. Add tahini, whiz it - then the beans, and whizz until smooth. If it's too dry, add a little more oil and lemon juice. Served sprinkled with paprika and chopped cilantro leaves and a wee squeeze of lemon.

Either recipe is delicious with raw vegetables (carrots, celery, cucumbers, bell peppers) and/or brown rice snaps to scoop it up.

Forgive me, but what is Tahini? I've never heard of it. Also I can't have onions or scallions, so can I just leave them out or do I need to substitute something for them? Didn't you say in another place that this is really healing for the intestins?

Is dried parsley OK? I don't use fresh herbs.

Thanks for the recipe, Granny

Tahini is like peanut butter, but made with sesame seeds instead. It's usually found in the natural foods section with the organic peanut butter. It's pretty good, you can get toasted or raw, and either will work for this recipe, but I prefer the toasted kind.

I don't want to say what substitutions will work for Sarah's recipe, but when I make my hummus, I either use chopped chives or I leave them out. I never use dried herbs though, but you give it a try and see if you like it. Hummus is really good for you, very high in fiber and antioxidants. It's also high in fat too, but it's monounsaturated, so it's ok. I like to add extra garlic and lemon juice to taste. I also serve my hummus with olives, cucumbers and fresh tomatoes.

If anyone has a good recipe for a pita-like bread please share it, that is really the best with hummus.

Good Luck,

Kathleen

Granny,

It's fine to leave out the scallions if you can't have them. Traditional hummus usually uses just garlic, anyway. Dried parsley doesn't have much flavor, but you can use it for appearance's sake or leave it out. I believe I mentioned that ghee (clarified butter) promotes colon health, but hummus is a great source of protein and healthy fats, both of which will help your body heal. Enjoy!

Kathleen, I wonder if Connie's pooris (without cinnamon sugar) would make a suitable substitute for pita bread? I know they are fried rather than baked, but I wonder.... Connie has re-posted her recipe here in this section of the new board. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
