Pink Hummus Recipe
You’ve asked for it, so today I am sharing my pink hummus recipe with you!
To be honest, I never really follow a recipe (truth’s out!). I’m generally bad at following instructions and I just tend to throw ingredients together (it is a hit and miss sometimes...). The recipe I’ve shared below is the results of many years of experimentation and ‘intuitive’ ingredient mixing. Fortunately, hummus is pretty fool proof and the recipe I’m sharing with you today will give you an incredibly tasty end product.
I love pink hummus because the colour is so beautiful, it’s a great way to sneak in a highly nutritious vegetable that is otherwise not very popular and pink hummus is a always a crowd pleaser.
Hummus, a perfect food
I kid you not, I could eat hummus every day. It’s so tasty, there are so many different ways of preparing and eating it, I doubt that I would ever get bored!
On top of that, when eating hummus, I know I am getting a perfectly balanced snack (or meal, depending on how much I eat…). Here’s why:
1 cup of chickpeas contains 14.5g of protein 👍
Tahini/sesame seeds are a good source of calcium & iron
The lemon juice in hummus helps with digestion of the chickpeas
Cumin is an excellent source of iron & also helps with digestion of chickpeas (plus the flavour is 👌)
Hummus is very high in fiber which helps remove unwanted waste from our body
Beet these benefits
The red pigments in beets, betalains, are responsible for their high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
I personally love beets because they support our liver’s detoxification process, specifically the Phase 2 detoxification process, which is when broken down toxins from Phase I are bound to other molecules so they can be removed from the body (sayonara!).
Beets are also known to help cleanse the blood of toxins, heavy metals, and other waste products.
Last but not least, the high fiber content in beets helps cleanse the digestive tract of waste and toxins while restoring healthy and regular bowel movements.
Alright, now to the real reason why we are all here:
