Nutritional Benefits of Chickpeas

The beauty of this hummus recipe is chickpeas have loads of nutritional benefits:

  • Fills you up but not your waistline
  • 2 cups of chickpeas contain your daily value of fiber which keeps your gut healthy
  • Contains both copper & iron to give you lots clean fuel and energy
  • Regulates blood sugar levels; Your body burns starchy legumes slowly which means you’ll have less sugar spikes
  • Awesome source for protein!!  1 cup of chickpeas is ⅓ of your daily value of protein…great news for vegetarians and vegansNutritional Benefits of Chickpeas

Hummus Recipe


  • 2 Cups of canned chickpeas, drained set liquid aside
  • 12 Cup Tahini
  • 14 Cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Fresh Garlic Cloves, peeled (or to taste) Trust me darlings 2 makes the hummus plenty garlicy
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 14 tsp+ Cumin I go easy with cumin because it has a mighty flavor, you can add more to taste
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

For Garnish:

  • Chopped fresh Parsley
  • Paprika

To Make:

  1. In a food processor, add all the ingredients, except the reserved chickpea liquid
  2. Blend until smooth.  Add more of the reserved liquid if you want to thin it out or blend for a less time if you like your hummus a bit chunky.
  3. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.  I like my hummus lemony and garlicy so I tweak it until I get just the right balance without thinning it too much.

I want to play with adding other ingredients like black beans, edamame, and cilantro/jalapeno!! Now that I have a good base hummus recipe I think making variations will be fun and of course DELICIOUS!!!
