We blend cooked chickpeas with homemade tahini, roasted beetroot, extra-virgin olive oil, cumin, lime, Bali heritage garlic and a pinch of Bali sea salt for a dark pink twist on the creamy classic Middle Eastern spread. Put some on a bagel or a slice of one of our healthy breads. You can also enjoy hummus as a dip with chips or cut-up vegetables, such as cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, cucumbers or capsicum.
Chickpeas are a good source of plant protein and fiber and help with weight loss, blood sugar control and digestion. Beetroot, with its distinctive purple color, is a great source of minerals and Vitamin C, for a healthier immune system, and to improve exercise performance and increase your stamina. Extra virgin olive oil is one of the healthiest oils you can eat, full of healthy fats and antioxidants that can help reduce the risk of heart disease, and Vitamins E and K for good cellular health. Garlic is known to boost the immune system and can help reduce the symptoms of the common cold. Garlic also may help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Sesame seeds (tahini) are a good source of fiber and healthy fats and may help lower cholesterol and high blood pressure. Cumin promotes digestion and weight loss.
