Why is hummus considered so healthy?

 

Hummus is made with some superstar ingredients and is a healthy part of your everyday diet. The main component is chickpeas, which are a type of legume. Also called garbanzo beans, they are a powerful protein source for vegans that is eco-friendly, readily available, affordable, and versatile.

 

Eating chickpeas is tied to improved gut health, and protection against heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. For another way to enjoy these tasty beans, try our Indian-Spiced Sauteed Coconut Kale with Chickpeas recipe.

 

Extra Virgin olive oil is also a key ingredient in hummus, contributing to its creamy texture and flavor. This traditional oil from the Mediterranean has been a dietary staple for some of the world's healthiest populations.

Because it is fresh-pressed, EVOO retains all the nutrients and antioxidants from the olive fruit. It is also rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, which help to lower bad cholesterol in the bloodstream.

 

More about Turmeric

 

This spice has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to heal a variety of ailments. It contains curcumin, a strong antioxidant that is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.

 

This compound can heal the gut, improve digestion, and even has cancer fighting properties. When mixed with black pepper, the medicinal compounds in turmeric become activated and are able to be absorbed and used by the body.

 

The Power of Garlic

 

There is more to garlic than meets the eye. Besides being a delicious, natural seasoning, this allium has some amazing health benefits. When crushed or chopped, garlic produces a compound called allicin.

 

This enzyme has been found to reduce inflammation, and offers antioxidant benefits. Research shows that crushing garlic before cooking allows more of this compound to be produced before the enzyme is inactivated by heat.

How to make Creamy Turmeric Hummus

  1. Start a pot of boiling water on the stove, and cook the chickpeas for 5 minutes or until they can be easily crushed. Boiling your beans ensures that this hummus will come out creamy and smooth every time.
  2. Crush the garlic with the flat side of a wide knife, and let sit on the counter while prepping the other ingredients.
  3. Zest the lemon with a vegetable peeler, and add juice and zest into the blender. Drain the boiled chickpeas, and add to the blender along with the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Blend on high until smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste, or more water if the hummus becomes too thick.
  5. Package into a glass container, and allow it to cool off in the fridge. This hummus will keep for a week in the fridge, or can be stored in the freezer for later.
