Hummus/bean Dip Recipes

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

1/2 cup tahini

1/4 cup lemon juice

2/3 cup tahini

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,

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!

    • Yeah I tend to have Mr. Hyde come out with gluten exposure. Honestly he was not present with my last few minor issues....anyway. Plenty of fluids, bone broths if she can do them. whole food soups. Avoid processed foods, have more whole foods and greens. Green and herbal teas can help. NOTE there are some enzymes that can help shorten gut issues but I think your daughter is past that point so lets focus on the mood. I find foods that promote melatonin, serotonin, and happy feelings work great. I would suggest hemp but recently there has been a huge industry issue with finding a safe gluten free powder form as most are CCed now. Pumpkin Seed protein from Oregon Seed Oil company can help with mood and is rich in nutrients. I might also suggest a B vitamin complex and perhaps a magnesium complex.....NOW these are not confirmed by check out Natural Vitality Calm for kids see if it might help. I use Liquid health Stress & Energy and Neurological support to help with my mental state, but that company makes some other stuff that might address our daughters issues more, as a liquid you just mix in juice, water, or tea it is great for getting supplementation. http://www.liquidhealthinc.com/products/
    • My daughter (6) was recently glutened by a friend of the family.  She gave her a drink that didn't have gluten in it but was made at a factory that has gluten contamination.   She recently just started a brand new school because we hadn't diagnosed her allergies yet and she has severe behavior problems when she is glutened and she wore out her welcome at Catholic School.  We were keeping her gluten free and her behaviors were wonderful.  Like I said she started the new school and was doing great unbeknownst to me she was glutened and I did not know.   She had a terrible week at school punching people kicking people hit and kick the principal. She is wet the bed every night for 8 days.  Is there any way to flush this out of her system faster.  Normally when she gets glutened it's a 10 to 14 day process.  It hasn't happened in a long time..... Right now I can't even send her to school.
    • I'm so sorry. Nursing school is rigorous enough on top of all this stress.  And, kudos to you for cooking regularly even in school.  I've been through a lot of school and I never managed that.  I can see how it feels hopeless to try and change your roommate's behavior - almost like an insurmountable hurdle! After reading all of these followup posts, I was doing some more thinking. One idea  is posting an add for a gluten free roommate next semester. The more I talk to people the more people I meet that are gluten free. Maybe there is someone out there like you. And one thing I know about medical people is that they are not embarrassed to discuss medical problems (even the ones they should be embarrassed to discuss  )  Put the word out there in your class - find out if there are people doing something similar - maybe they are gluten-free for health or mood or diabetes. And look for people that are low carb, Whole 30, Ketogenic or similar - those folks don't eat gluten either - they just don't call themselves "gluten free".  Maybe you don't have to be trapped in your current situation.  I eat a lot of eggs and beans which are cheap ways to get protein without meat. Also, (and I know this might be controversial) but there is a study out there, that says that celiac patients that get neurotic about avoiding gluten and focus on only eating certified etc  have a worse quality of life (and no improvement in control of their celiac) compared to people who are not as neurotic and eat gluten free foods (but don't only eat certified). That may be a whole separate post - but it's worth considering. I'm one of the neurotic types but I'm thinking about how to be not so crazy!   I wish you the best!
    • "Any Coeliac will tell you the most awkward time of the day for them is lunch" Ya just can't make stuff like this up. Lunchtime is awkward?
    • Shouldn't they be studying why celiacs who have been gluten-free for a year are still seropositive and having moderate to severe symptoms?  It sounded like the pill was suppposed to be taken with meals that might have cc ? So why would they do a study where it's given with gluten-free meals? What would it be breaking down if the meal has no gluten? How would it help? I'm confused. But it's been a long day. update Just read some drug company is going to be selling these pills in 2023. I hope by then the poor celiacs still having bad problems are able to figure out why they are still hurting instead of having to take super expensive pills.
