Yield: 2.5 cups or 20 oz
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes (including clean up)

Homemade hummus made entirely of raw, whole, natural ingredients? Yes, please. The PURE Juicer makes this process a breeze when you simply grind the ingredients through stage one. This recipe allows for modifications according to personal taste: start with our suggestions below but feel free to play around with the spices, especially the cumin and garlic! We used a #4 PURE juicer grid, but if you prefer a super-fine grind, use the #2.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 can chickpeas (15oz)
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1-3 garlic cloves
  • salt & pepper to taste

Pro Tip: add a simple garnish of olive oil, finely chopped parsley, roughly chopped red onion, toasted pine nuts, and a sprinkle each of cumin and cayenne pepper.

Health Benefits:

chickpeas: high in fiber, low on the glycemic index, and considered to be a whole protein, these legumes pack a nutritional punch. A good source of polyunsaturated fats and low in cholesterol, a diet including chickpeas can regulate blood sugar levels and mitigate risk of heart disease.

tahini: made from ground sesame seeds, tahini is rich in anti-inflammatory monounsaturated fats and contains a variety of vitamins that can aid in bone health and energy production.

lemon: high in vitamin C and citric acid, lemons aid in iron absorption and could possibly prevent kidney stones. Several plant compounds found in lemons may lower cholesterol.

red pepper: bell peppers are high in antioxidants and vitamin C, as well as other important vitamins and minerals like vitamin B6, vitamin K1, vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, and potassium.

cumin: promotes digestion, prevents food-borne infections, and can help improve cholesterol and control blood sugar levels.

garlic: garlic can boost immunity, improve blood pressure, and even protect raw food from bacteria that causes food poisoning.
