Use Dried Garbanzo Beans aka Chickpeas
Hummus is a great source of protein and other important nutrients!
For better nutrition use dried garbanzo beans or chickpeas instead of canned.
Dried garbanzo beans aka chickpeas contain more magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, copper, zinc, selenium, and potassium.
You'll also avoid any added sodium or additives by using dried beans instead of using the canned - not to mention the money you will save!
You can also eliminate the anti-nutrients that are naturally present in all beans by soaking them first (before cooking) and you can learn how to make a lacto-fermented hummus for even better nutrition.
How to Make Hummus - from Dried Garbanzo Beans
Soak dried beans overnight in room temperature filtered water - a few inches above the beans.
In the morning, drain off the soaking water from the beans.
Put the soaked beans into a cooking pot and cover with a few inches of filtered water.
Bring up to a boil and then lower the heat - simmer beans for approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours with the lid ajar.
When the garbanzo beans are tender, drain the water using a colander and cool.
Add garbanzo beans, roasted garlic,
lemon juice, tahini paste, olive oil, salt, and pepper to a food
processor or high speed blender.
Blend until smooth consistency is reached and add small amounts of filtered water (to thin your hummus if needed).
Pour hummus into a bowl and add seasoning and drizzle olive oil on your hummus recipes.
