Making and enjoying a quick and easy hummus is one of my absolute favourite things. Making it yourself is just as easy and tastes way better than buying store bought. I love it as an afternoon snack with veggies or a dollop with my meals to add some flavour (try it in a macrobiotic bowl!).This version has turmeric and ginger in it for their anti inflammatory properties and tons of healthy fats and protein to keep you feeling full and blood sugar levels stable.
Carrot Ginger Cashew Quick and Easy Hummus:
1 canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 whole carrot peeled and cut into small pieces
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbs tahini
2 tbs olive oil
2 gloves garlic
Nub of ginger (about size of your thumb)
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
¼ cup raw cashews
½ tsp turmeric powder
Sprinkle of red pepper flakes (adjust to taste or omit if you don’t like the heat!)*
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy. Serve with gluten free crackers and mixed veggies!
