Sweet Hummus

As the weather warms up, I am less and less enthralled with eating hot foods. (By mid August, my husband will start calling me at lunch time to ask if I remembered to eat today!) So, I'm trying to find really healthy/tasty snack options now to start making that I can keep on hand and actually EAT before I do something stupid and pass out. Again. Which is kind of a thing when you are 6'2 - the likelihood of accidentally taking out innocent villagers is quite high! :P

So anyway. I found a new Hummus-esque recipe in How It All Vegan the other day and decided to give it a whirl (even if it DID look odd.

TASTY TASTY TASTY! So much so, I had to share it on here.

Nutty Hummus Dip (great on apple slices, gluten-free-bread, carrot sticks, etc.)

1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas

1/2 cup nut butter of your choice (I used some homemade cashew butter)

1/2 cup apple cider (or juice)

1 tsp cinnamon

Drop it all in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Keep in the fridge, but it is tasty enough I have no idea how long it would last in there. I think next time I might even try adding some cocoa powder and seeing how a chocolate version would work out.

This sounds wierd but I'll try it soon.

I posted a couple of dips on that Vegtables & fruit thread that I thought would be good for your rice paper wraps. Don't know if you can eat the ingredients but you might be able to substitute.

I just made those rice paper wrappers this past weekend. They are simple and delicious. I filled them with a mixture of sauteed thinly sliced mushrooms and chopped cooked shrimp that I sauteed in dairy free margarine. I added in cooked sticky rice and some sweet chili sauce and hot Chinese mustard. When I added the rice mixture to each wrap, I topped with a couple of slices of avocado. Rolled them up. I tried eating them fresh, pan frying in a bit of oil and baking them sprayed with Pam. I like the pan frying the best. Next time I will spray the pan with Pam, rather than using the oil. I used only about a teaspoon of oil but I think the Pam with work better. I made a mixture of hummus and sweet chili sauce for dipping. I gotta tell you, it was heaven! I did find out that the 8 inch wrappers only have 47 calories.. Yah!!!! Thank you soooo much for the idea!

Those sound great! I'm so glad the idea worked out so well for you.

Hi Magpie,

I am anxious to try your recipe as soon as I get home. My Dr. wants me to eat chick peas (sort of as a protien) but i couldn't find a good tasting chummus which suits my gluten-free diet and taste buds. This sounds like one i might enjoy....

Thanks for the recipe!

    • Just for your information - Celiac disease is not a "gluten allergy".  
    • Hello! Not sure if this has been posted before, as I did not see it. But as you all know a lot of us have problems with getting enough nutrients and even those like me that don't, its also just as important.  *Tangent* I think as a society, not just America but in the UK as I noticed while living there and I am sure other territories as well, we seem to ignore one of the biggest vitamins of all - WATER. 55-65% of our body is made up of this crazy vitamin. Not only does it help in our most crucial bodily functions, but it also aids in the building of our cells. Specifically those with celiacs, it is vital in the aiding of fixing the problems we have with not getting enough nutrients. After removing gluten from our diets, our bodies need to work SO hard to get itself back to as normal composition as possible. Water helps build our cells back up, carries nutrients, brings oxygen to our brains, and so so much more. I just want everyone to keep this in mind whilst continuing their journey through this confusing disease.  Please please, I urge you to drink your 64 oz of water a day!
    • Atkins is bad for your body, ketosis for the most part is fine (depends on your body). People who intake too much fat while trying to go through ketosis are at risk for stones. I think your route is the best though to be honest. Sweet potatoes and some antioxidant enriched fruits are a good source of carbohydrates while having a low-carb diet. 
    • Hi all.  I'm new to this forum and so happy to be able to ask questions.  I'm a makeup hound and realize I will need to start replacing.  I'm acquiring Arbonne products and really like what I'm using.  I have tons of lipstick and, obviously, need to make some changes quickly.  DLoes anyone know which of the higher end department store brands are safe.  I've been an avid Lancome, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Clinique person, but I am fearful to use anything but my Bite lipstick now.  Would appreciate your wisdom.    
    • Growing up my Dad was a competitive bodybuilder.  He would go into ketosis before competitions.  He knew because he used pee strips.  I thought ketosis was hard on a person, as in bad for your body. Personal update:  I have been grain free for a few days now and have almost completely avoided brain fog.  I still eat sweet potatoes so I am getting enough carbs and sleeping well.  I weigh the same and I am happy! Friday is my colonoscopy and endoscopy to see how I am doing now at the 1 year mark.  I also have eosinaphalic esophagitis, hiatal hernia and GERD.
