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!

    • My daughter, who is almost 21 and has celiac disease, was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized she had been having seizure since she was a teenager but the random passing out and feelings of being 'out of it' were attributed to dehydration or poor nutrition and sleep habits during numerous trips to the emergency room. In our reading about Epilepsy, I have found some mention of celiac and gluten issue connections and even where a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet provided a lot of improve the with frequency and severity of seizures.  I would be interested to know if anyone else shares this experience.
    • I have also reacted to various Planters products, believing them to be safe because gluten is not listed in the allergens but have had almost identical reactions to yours.  It did not occur to me that I might be getting zapped from them until just recently when I ate some of their Salt and Vinegar almonds and became really ill and then recognized that I had reacted to them before. I have notice in the past few months that the 'Hermans' brand nuts, which have never mentioned wheat in their allergens now carries the 'processed in a plant that processes wheat' disclaimer.  It makes me wonder if all nuts are processed in the same manner and if all nuts and nut products should be considered unsafe? I know that I will not trust the Planters brand any longer regardless of whether wheat is listed or not.
    • I've heard some people say that they're gluten free, and some say they're not.. I had a container of planter's cashews that I ate a few days ago and I haven't been feeling that great since then. I thought I was fine, but yesterday I woke up with a headache and was feeling really gassy all day. Then since last night, every once in a while I'll have some stomach cramps. They last for a few minutes and then go away.. that has happened 3 or 4 times since last night. It seems weird that I wouldn't have a reaction right away though.. or at least within a few hours of eating them. I ate some on thursday and on friday, and I didn't really start to feel sick until saturday. It's been a while since I last got glutened though, so maybe my reaction has changed? Or maybe I'm being paranoid and I just ate too many cashews haha. But that's the only thing I've eaten in the past like 2 weeks that was different. Has anyone else had a problem with planter's nuts?
    • Well, a different doc is checking for wheat allergy not the one who ran the celiac test. Interesting about the lyme and ttg iga, I didn't know that.  So much to muddy the waters with her.  She's been treated for lyme for many years but they keep coming back with other tick borne illnesses that may be infecting her.  But since  the testing is so poor and nothing is solid in her testing, I am needing to look at every avenue I can to try to help her.  It's just not adding up. As a young child she had sensory processing disorder, than PANDAS (reaction to strep), then Lyme.  Was gluten free for many years until we added it back in about 4 years ago.  Then 3 months ago started failing fast with psych symptoms of dissociation, anxiety, fears, unwanted laughter, joint pain, random pain, feeling ill after every meal, severe pain after wheat and dairy combo followed by diarrhea.  I hope we get a good GI who will at the very least be willing to rule out celiac as we are running out of ideas.   I hope after all her testing she will be willing to go gluten-free again regardless of what we find, to see if it will help her.
