Hummus

This is one of the world's best recipes for Hummus.  Chickpeas, the main ingredient in hummus have an abundance of wonderful fiber and protein. If you mix chickpeas with rice you get a very high quality and healthy protein.  In its different preparations, hummus can be an excellent sourve of folate, zinc, Vitamin B6 , Vitamin C,  molybdenum & magnesium.  This is some tasty and very healthy stuff we are making here.

You will need:

1 can of Chick peas (Garbanzo beans)  or 200 grams
2 garlic cloves crushed and chopped finely (with the little tongue in the center removed before crushing)
1 tablespoon of Sesame paste (Tahini)
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
a pinch of sea salt
cayenne pepper, and paprika to taste.
optional lemon juice


If you have a food processor, you can add a little water and put all ingredients in the food processor, and fastly whip up the hummus for a quick treat.

If you do not have a food processor, start by crushing the chickpeas with a fork, and then add the sesame paste and olive oil and mix thoroughty.  Follow with the garlic.  Finally mix in the salt, pepper and paprika.

Some wonderfully tasty ways to enjoy your healthy treat are with slices of organic carrots, celery, and cucumber.

Another great way is to make sandwiches with pita bread finely chopped carrots and onions, and stuffed with yummy organic arugula.

For an extra bonus next week or next month, make a double recipe and put the extra in the freezer.

With this you will be prepared for your yoga, vegetarian fed, strong and healthy and ready for handstands!!
