I am sure you already know I like hummus as a dish. You should be having hummus at least about twice a week. Therein lies the challenge.
If you are going to have something that often, then creativity is going to have to come in to avoid boredom.
Hence I crafted this hummus recipe to give a regular hummus recipe some jazz.
The question was whether it was going to work. I had my fingers and toes crossed. If it tanked, that will be a huge embarrassment.
If it worked, then great. That would be another tick on the creativity board.
Off I went and came up with this Plummed Peanut Butter Hummus.
…and it worked a charm. Nice texture, nice taste, great for blood sugar control and nice for your waistline too.
If you are a fan of hummus, then this is another one to add to your portfolio.
What do we need for the Plummed Peanut Butter Hummus?
Chickpeas (drained) X 3 Cans
Peanut butter (crunchy) X 3 tbs
Plums X 3
Lemon X 2
Red Onion X 1
Black pepper X 1 tbs and half
Cumin powder X 2 tbs
Paprika hot X 2 tbs
Salt to taste
How to make the Plummed Peanut Butter Hummus
>> Slice up your red onions and the plums ensuring the core of the plum where the pit is located is discarded.
>> Squeeze out the lemons and pour the lemon juice into the food processor.
>> Add the red onions, the plum slices, crunchy peanut butter, black pepper, cumin and hot paprika into the food processor with the lemon juice.
>> Blitz the lot for about a minute and half. Pause the processor and check if you have got a fine paste. If you haven’t, blitz the lot again.
>> Now add the drained chick peas and salt to taste.
>> Blitz the content until you are happy with the texture. You want a nice thick paste but of course you can thin it out some more if you prefer it thinner by adding a little water at a time. Blitz every time you add water and check to make sure you are happy with it.
>> Turn off food processor.
That’s it. Your plummed peanut butter hummus is ready.
What about blood sugar friendliness of the plummed peanut butter hummus. I got a reading of 4.4 mmol/l (79.2 mg/dl). Nice.
