In this pic below I used garbanzo beans with tahini which makes it a lighter shade; feel free to use black beans or garbanzo beans – switch it up!
HOMEMADE HUMMUS WITH SPIRULINA & SPICE
1 3/4 cups organic black beans OR chickpeas (1 – 15 oz bisphenol-free can)*
1/4 cup chopped organic yellow onion
1 tablespoon extra virgin organic olive oil
1 tablespoon Longevity Spirulina
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon
2 cloves fresh garlic
1/4 teaspoon high quality sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
OPTIONAL: 1-2 tablespoons organic raw tahini
* If you have access to heirloom organic beans like I do from the local farmer’s market, I’d suggest using these beans instead of canned ones.
Rinse and drain the beans (not in tap water, please!). In a food processor, combine all ingredients and let it run until smooth. Taste test & adjust if desired. To serve, add colorful chopped organic veggies, and serve with more chopped vegetables (celery makes a great scoop) and/or your preferred crackers.
If you’re thinking this dip looks like spirulina plop, I swear it tastes much better than you’d ever think! You cannot even taste the spirulina very much and if you want, just add less to accommodate your fear of greeeeeeen (or brownish) food 😉
I used black beans in this one and is the picture I took after I made the recipe exactly as I shared above. OMG – it was sooo good, I ate the entire thing in 1 sitting (and felt great)!
Longevity Spirulina is for active people who want plant-based protein. It’s grown in the air quality of 9500-foot elevation in the Andes mountains and is fed with glacial water (as opposed to dirty chemical-laden tap water) from Cotopaxi, Ecuador. Most definitely it’s a quality you can taste – a creamy dense flavor with NO fishiness (and lends a cheesiness to savory meals).
This prized spirulina is rich in the blue pigment phycocyanin, a substance studies show to have outstanding anti-inflammatory effects.
It’s going to bless you with:
– 60% Absorbable Protein (highest source of protein on the planet)
– All 9 Essential Amino Acids
– Youth-Enhancing Antioxidants
– High Elevation Glacial Water Grown
– Sweet Dense Taste (No Fishy Taste)
– Vegan and Gluten-Free
