Hummus

Hummus can be a spread, a dip or a topping when making a bowl. It requires few ingredients and is extremely simple and quick to make. Hummus is also high in protein and high in fiber.

This recipe makes 2 1/2 cups and keeps in the refrigerator for 5 days

Ingredients:

3/4 cup of dry chick peas (Soak overnight, healthier and better than canned)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 garlic cloves
4 tbsp tahini
Salt (Optional)

Put cooked chickpeas and other ingredients in a food processor or blender. Process to a smooth purée, adding some of the cooking liquid until you get that consistancy.

I then drizzled some olive oil, sprinkled with paprika and served with some crudités, pita wedges and crackers

Seaweed also know as sea vegetable has a  high content in Potassium, Iron, Magnesium, Calcium & fibre, no one imagines how nutritional and good seaweed is for us !

In the photo is what I have in the pantry at the moment, top left Gomasio a mix of seaweeds and  sesame which I sprinkle as a topping on bowls, then wakame flakes which once soaked I add to salads or bowls or simply add to a miso soup. The Arame (top right) is delicious on salads as well. Bottom right is roasted Nori that I have as a snack or add to bowls.  Last but not least the Wakame in full for bowls or soups. Discover the many varieties of seaweeds !
