Prediabetes Recipe for Hummus

Prediabetes Recipe For Hummus (High Fiber)

Hummus is a staple in our household and doesn’t last long! This Prediabetes Recipe For Hummus is packed with healthy fats, slow release carbs, fiber, protein and just…well…a bit of heavenly wonderfulness…Read on to see how I make my hummus and how you can make it too…

Hummus is great for:

  • Dipping raw veggies
  • Over grilled or roasted veggies (roasted zucchini and hummus – OMG!)
  • For adding to your broth based soups (makes veggie soup come alive!)
  • Or on whole grain bread or crackers

Hummus is just plain wonderful!

Here’s how I make it. It’s very easy to make.

Prediabetes Recipe For Hummus

What You Need: A Food Processor

Ingredients:

  • 5 cloves Garlic
  • 2/3 cup Tahini
  • 5 cups Chick Peas
  • Juice from 3-4 lemons fresh squeezed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (you can use half water/half oil if this is too much oil for you, but olive oil is very good for you…and the oil will slow down any blood sugar rise for my Prediabetic and Insulin Resistant friends)
  • Water to thin, depending on your desired thickness

Directions:

  1. Process garlic, olive oil and tahini until smooth.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and process again until smooth.

Notes: Check to make sure you have enough salt! Canned chick peas vary in saltiness – a lot!

Makes about 5 cups.

Cook the Chick Peas Yourself:

I cook my own chick peas in my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker – super easy! It makes great soups and stews too!
