Creamy Hemp Hummus

__________________

This creamy dip goes especially well with crackers and raw vegetables, or used as a spread in sandwiches and wraps. The addition of hemp seeds provides a superb load of protein, essential fatty acids, iron, and chlorophyll.

INGREDIENTS:

1½ cups garbanzo beans (freshly sprouted or canned)
2 Tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
4 Tbsp hemp seeds
1 Tbsp hemp or flax oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1/3 cup lemon juice
½ tsp sea salt

DIRECTIONS:

Blend: In a food processer, blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a bowl and serve. Will keep for 1 week.

Makes 2 cups

    Hi, me again (this is my third comment tonight!). I’m always looking to tweak my hummus recipe and I loved your addition of hemp seeds. I recently starting eating chia in the mornings instead of hemp but still wanted to get the that hemp goodness in my diet – this was great for that! Like most of my hummus and spreads I ate it over salad instead of dressing. So good! (I did the cooked beans but will hopefully try the sprouted version soon!)

    This was my first time making hummus with hemp seeds and definitely not the last – great idea! I usually also add either avocado or spinach (or sometimes both) because I find plain hummus kind of bland. It is PERFECT with dijon mustard on veggie sandwiches.

    Julie,
    Don’t give up on fresh garlic! Next time you mince some up (or onions), rub your hands down with yellow mustard, like French’s, and then wash with soap and water. The mustard will take out that pervasive smell. It’s pretty amazing.

    Another way to use fresh garlic without the smelly hands is to use a garlic press. I love mine. It came with a little cleaner gaget that gets in all the holes after you press your garlic and then you just toss it in the dishwasher. I use a fork to get the last bits of the garlic out of the press and I never even touch the chopped garlic.

    [...] For an appetizer, we had the naked hummus plate. It came with small cups of regular hummus and red pepper hummus plus very generous helpings of veggies and warm pita trianlges. Both types of hummus were good, but I did enjoy the regular a bit more. I thought it had a little more flavor than the roasted red pepper hummus. We actually did not finish all the veggies and pita, so I took the rest home and enjoyed them with some of Julie Morris’ hemp seed hummus. [...]

    I was all excited about trying hemp as I just went raw about 4 months ago. I loved the taste of the hemp……added 1 T. to my smoothie the other day. Is it common for hemp to cause constipation? I”v only read that it helps constipation. Not the case w/ me. Or is it just me? Might have to go to using the hemp oil instead?
