RECIPE: GOLDEN BEET HUMMUS
I love a good hummus.
But I can be quite picky when it comes down to it, as all store bought hummus have canola / soybean oil in them, which are no bueno for me. I stay away from rancid plant seed oils as they can create a lot of inflammation in our bodies, and disrupt our ratio of Omega's 3 to 6 most notably. A much larger topic at hand, but just know that inflammatory oils are never a good choice when trying to create optimal health, and a disease free bod!
I also think hummus is just so easy to make, and when you make it at home you have options a plenty when it comes to what you can add to your delicious creation.
For me it usually includes some unique ingredients such as golden beets, zucchini, turmeric, and ACV to give it a little tang, and a lot of nourishing goodness. My body is also not a beans lover, but I can tolerate them in moderation. So when I make it at home I can control the chickpea and vegetable ratio, in favour to my veggies, as I'm clearly obsessed.
Todays creation involves all four of those high vibe + nourishing ingredients that I listed above, along with a few other spices + superfoods that take it to the next level.
I love eating hummus with roasted vegetables, or a nice plate of local roasted brussel sprouts + broccoli, organic / local chicken, a simple romaine salad, and a nice dallop of homemade hummus. A perfect winter plate as the temperatures start to deep dive. Comforting, yet still high vibe, whole foods based, and highly satiating and nourishing.
GOLDEN BEET HUMMUS
- 2-3 steamed golden beets
- 1/2 can - 3/4 can of organic chickpeas sans salt
- 4 TBSP Tahini
- 2 peeled zucchinis
- 1 generous heap of turmeric
- 4 cloves of fresh garlic
- 2 lemons juiced
- 2-4 TBSP of water (Add TBSP at a time then blend, as you don't want it too watery, this is the trick to thick hummus)
- Dash cayenne
- Dash ACV (apple cider vinegar)
- 1 TSP pink salt (84 minerals!)
- Edible flowers (super optional) they add flavour + depth + beauty
Enjoy with choice of raw veggies, winter staples, or simply as you wish.
Glowy golden beets for the win.
