Brace yourself, because you are just about to learn how to make the best hummus!
Prep the Chickpea:
We soaked the chickpea a night before making the hummus (well-soaked grains cook faster). You can also use the canned cooked chickpea. Make sure you give the canned chickpea a rinse to wash off the preserves.
Overcook the chickpea in a pressure cooker. Allow the cooker to cool down naturally. Remove the skin of the cooked chickpeas.
If you wish to cook the chickpea in an instant pot, yup! can be done. But it may take longer than you think. 😉
Add the cooked/overcooked chickpea to the mixy or a food processor.
Add a clove of garlic, some tahini sauce (sesame seed butter) and a dash of olive oil.
Grind everything until you get a smooth consistency. ✔️
Making hummus is not only easy but its also delicious, versatile and is packed with incredible nutrients.
This ⬆️ hummus is made without the oil as we are trying to avoid oil as much as possible.
Excellent source of plant-based protein. Makes it the best choice for vegetarians and vegans. Full of fiber and contains micro and macronutrients like healthy carbs, protein, manganese, thiamin, vitamin B6 and so on.
Hummus has a low glycemic index. That being said, the chickpea paste dissolves slowly in the body. Controlling blood sugar levels (ups and downs). Gradually controls digestion, keeping you full for longer.
A win-win for those who want to lose weight! 🤸♀️
