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!

    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
    • tom & chee!  good to know   they grill the sandwich on a separate pan?  or do you just order soup and salad.  so cool to find more places to eat out!!
    • Hi everybody,  I have had symptoms of Celiac since mid pregnancy and they have gotten worse over the last 5 months post partum. I have constipation, periods stopped, extreme fatigue,  joint pain, weak muscles, dizzyness, migraines, light sensitivity,  pins and needles in hands and feet, elevated TSH, depreason and anxiety. Was put on thyroid meds but it didn't help any of my symptoms. My doctor told me to try gluten free and reintroduce it. I tried it for 2 weeks and started feeling quite a bit better, then reintroduced it and felt worse than ever! It's definitely a gluten problem. She suggested I get the Celiac panel run so I got tested for Ttg iga, DGP igg and EMA all came back NEGATIVE! by this point I had only reintroduced gluten for a few days. She said my antibodies shouldn't go down by much in this time frame. Should I push for a referral to a GI doctor? I don't know why I feel the need for diagnosis? Probably my mother in law laughing when I said I can't eat gluten anymore and she tried to offer me things like donuts, saying it's just a little.  She just doesn't get it. So now, do I suffer for 6 weeks to get the biopsy or just stop eating gluten and be done with it.  I have also noticed while introducing new foods to my baby that he throws up whenever I give him anything wheat based. I doubt they can diagnose a baby and I refuse to damage his intestines for a diagnosis.  Maybe I should get my daughter tested as well? She is 3 and has been complaining of upset tummy and is frequently constipated. She is growing well though but is also quite thin. She is not a big eater. She may be constipated because she holds it. She is afraid to poop on the potty. Since I have had symptoms for only about 10 months, could there not be much damage yet? Sorry for the long post!
