Before I made a point of making my own hummus , you could find me at the store every 2 days buying it for $5 a tiny container! Talk about time consuming and a waste of my hard earned money! When I finally got my hummus ducks in a row and made my own, I haven’t bought store hummus since. Besides homemade is ALWAYS better than store bought. The recipe that follows is adapted from Dr. Furman’s Black Bean Hummus recipe with an added Mitch and Gina twist 🙂

*You can make this hummus with a can of chickpeas, black beans, white navy beans or our favorite – sprouted lentils. Whatever your taste buds are in the mood for.

1 1/2 cups cooked sprouted lentils, or 1 can of  cooked lentils, low sodium

2 tbsp water
2 tsp fresh squeezed lime
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tbsp raw tahini
2 tsp Bragg’s amino acids or low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 clove of garlic ( I put in 2-3 because I LOVE garlic)
1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper or paprika (once again, I put in 1-2 tsp of cayenne cause I LOVE spicy)Directions:
Throw all this into the blender and you will have yourself the happiest, yummiest hummus in about 30 seconds!*For best results, we highly suggest using a high power blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec
