Easy Hummus with Tahini Recipe

Easy Hummus with Tahini Recipe

Hey Foodies – I hope you have had a good weekend!

I am writing today to talk about a dish I grew up on and added to almost anything. Hummus- now I know you all have heard of it. Hummus is a very popular dish when it comes to the Mediterranean Diet. Not only is the Mediterranean Diet a tasty way to eat, drink and live, but it is also a realistic and sustainable way to reduce diseases!

Hummus is so popular for many reasons. One of these is the best – it tastes SO DELICIOUS. I don’t think I have ever met anyone who doesn’t like hummus. Another is that is GOOD FOR YOU. Two for two?

Let me put it this way – in 2010, people in Beirut made the biggest plate of hummus to ever exist. Guess how much it weighed….23,520 POUNDS. Now, why would you make this if it sucked? Exactly – you wouldn’t! Here is that big ole plate of hummus!

 

Okay back to being serious…..ish.

Here are some of the many benefits of eating hummus!

  1. Helps improve your bone, muscle, skin and blood health
  2. Helps you lower your cholesterol
  3. Help prevent cancer
  4. Help you lose weight
  5. Help your bones grow stronger
  6. Helps alleviate anemia
  7. Be a good sub for unhealthy foods
  8. Help balance blood sugar levels

Also!

  • It’s dairy-free
  • It’s nut-free
  • It’s gluten-free

Hummus is a great natural option to keep your heart healthy!

Macronutrients – A 2 tablespoon serving of hummus contains 50 calories, 2 grams of protein, 3 grams of fat and 4 grams of carbohydrates, including 2 grams of fiber. Only 0.4 grams of fat is saturated.

Hummus is made with Tahini – which is a sesame-seed paste

This combination of protein and fiber will help you feel full for longer periods of time!

Hummus makes a great dip for pita bread and vegetables, and you can also use it as a sandwich spread. I add a tablespoon or two to my buddha bowls!


This recipe I made was even approved by my lovely Lebanese Mother – who is VERY picky when it comes to making hummus. Normally she is the only one who can pull it off! But this one was signed off by her!

Making hummus is incredibly easy! All you need is a food processor!

If you are in need of a food processor – here is a great one! Mine is KitchenAid and I highly recommend it!
