Hemp Hummus

Hemp Hummus - shutterstock_223870918Making your own hummus at home is an easy way to ensure that the ingredients are healthy and natural. Most commonly, olive oil is used as the base for hummus, but by trading olive oil out for hemp oil, you can make a hummus that really packs a natural benefit punch. Of course, don’t forget the nutty flavor of hemp will add a tasty touch to your hummus.

Use the hemp-based hummus as a dip for pita chips, crackers or fresh vegetables. Spread the hummus on pita pockets, sandwich raps, or use it as a healthy alternative to salad dressing. Use the hummus as a spread on an avocado and tomato sandwich, as stuffing in cherry tomatoes or bell peppers, or as a topping for baked chicken or fish. By making your hummus with hemp oil or seeds, you can create tasty lunches, midday snacks or a quality post-workout meal.

All you’ll need to make the hemp-based hummus is a handful of ingredients and a small food processor. Make just enough for whatever you’re going to immediately eat, or store leftovers in the fridge for up to two days later.

The ingredients:
1 ½ cups of garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
4 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp hemp oil
1 tsp garlic powder or chopped garlic
1/3 cup lemon juice
½ tsp salt

Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blend thoroughly until the mixture is smooth.

To increase the thickness of the hummus, perhaps for when you want to use it as a sandwich spread, use a little less hemp oil. For a thinner version, which you might prefer when using for salad dressing, add a touch more oil to the mix.

If you have hemp seeds on hand, you can sprinkle them on top of the hummus just before serving.
