Hummus with a healthy twist
This Probiotic Hummus Recipe with vegetables is my kind of snack, it is quick and easy, yet nutrient dense. Hummus in particular is something that I always try and have stocked in my fridge, I have recently started to make up pre made hummus jars that have vegetable sticks ready already cut up in the jar to help me avoid those 3pm hunger slumps and reaching for a not so good for you snack!
I rotate my dip recipes depending on what I feel like, this recipe below is packed full of pre and probiotics and is made within minutes. If I have a bit of time, I opt for my roasted garlic hummus, which is rich and garlicy.
Not only does this Probiotic Rich Hummus taste delish, it is a great source of plant based protein, and teamed with the added benefits of the probiotics. So it helps with digestive issues and intestinal health.
Probiotic Hummus Recipe w/ Vegetables
Prep Time: 5 minutes
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon tahini
1 can organic chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
1 lemon (juice)
Pinch of Himalayan sea salt & cracked pepper
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 heaped tablespoon Natures Way Probiotic Powder
4 carrots (sliced into long crudités)
½ celery (sliced into long crudités)
3 cucumbers (sliced into long crudités)* only use cucumbers if you are going to be eating them straight away – as the hummus can become quite watery after a while due to the cucumbers moisture content!
- In a food processor, combine all ingredients and blitz until your desired consistency.
- You want the consistency to be silky smooth, you may need to add a touch more oil or a splash of water.
- In a jar/mason jar start layering your hummus first, then position the vegetable sticks on top.
- Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with paprika
- Pop the lid on them and leave in the fridge
A great little snack for a picnic or even just to keep in your fridge for a healthy, quick and easy snack.
