We know that this time of the year, there are plenty of “bugs” going around…
And since you’re a loyal member of the Stonehenge Health community, you already know — one of the best ways to stay healthy is to:
Keep your gut healthy.
But, we understand that you’re going to indulge every now and then — like when you’re hosting a party for a big sporting event, movie night, or family gathering.
Foods at an event like that can be strong enough to knock down even the HEALTHIEST gut.
So, to keep your health on track and keep those “bad gut days” at bay…we’re sharing a simple, nourishing, affordable recipe you can make to snack on during your favorite championship game, party, or really anytime at all.
We call it our “Super Hummus Dip” — because it’s ALWAYS a hit at every big get together.
Here’s how you make it:
Super Hummus Dip
Prep Time: 1 HR
Servings: Makes two cups
*1 Head of roasted garlic
*3 cups of chickpeas
*Zest of 1 large lemon
*Juice of 1 large lemon
*2 ounces of tahini
*2 ounces of olive oil
*Sea salt and white pepper (to taste)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Grab your garlic. Cut them about a ¼ of an inch from the top to expose the cloves. Peel off the loose skin and place the garlic on a sheet of aluminum foil, drizzling a bit of olive oil on top.
Place the pan in the center of the oven and bake for 45 minutes. When you check on the garlic, you should be able to easily slide your knife in.
When the pan is cool enough to handle, squeeze out the soft garlic and set the pan to the side.
Now, place your chickpeas in a bowl and run some lukewarm water over them. Next, dump them out and shake off any excess water.
Place your chickpeas in a pressure cooker for 45 minutes. (Set this up right after you place your garlic in the oven to save yourself some time.).
Finally, we’re ready to prepare the hummus: Place your chickpeas in a food processor. Add in your garlic, the zest of a lemon, lemon juice, your tahini and lastly, your olive oil.
Now, process the mixture until you achieve your desired level of smoothness. (If the mixture is too thick for your liking, just add in a bit of cold water until it’s the consistency you desire.)
Now all you need to do is season everything with some salt and pepper.
Voila, you’ve got an incredibly simple, delicious, healthy snack you can prepare for any championship occasion.
