Legumes (beans) are meat to vegetarians, as are nuts and seeds, for the protein they provide. Although there is no true organic now, due to the geoengineering ruin of all water, air, soil and growing cycles, we must still choose from the best of what we have available at hand. Choosing foods which are as non-GMO is no longer trustworthy, since the “Non-GMO Project” label on everything is indicative of the opposite: whitewash like on a picket fence. BUT, you can make your own, with the best and “cleanest” (from pesticides, fertilizers, GMOs, contaminated soil, irradiated) you can afford. By making it yourself, you reduce contamination, handling, and other toxic and cumulatively life-shortening vectors.
Traditional hummus, a Mediterranean staple, is usually made from chick peas, which I recall are one of the few beans not genetically modified (yet), but you can actually use any variety. (Black beans make a great hummus, with cumin and cilantro mixed in). What you see in the images is exactly what I used, and it took ten minutes. I ground the grains and baked the bread from scratch a couple of weeks ago (I freeze it in small, separate bundles for use over time). The garbanzo (the proper term for chick peas) beans already soaked, lemons juiced, all I had to do was cut some onion and garlic. Always let the garlic air for ten minutes after slicing but before adding to a recipe or cooking process to allow the active component Allicin to reach antioxidant capacity.
This served one =)
About 1-1/2 cups chick peas, 2 TBS lemon juice, 1/4 small onion, 2 cloves garlic (sliced 10 minutes prior to blending), 2 TBS Tahini, 1/2 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt, 1/4+ freshly ground black pepper, and enough bean soak liquid to blend at a smooth consistency.
All ingredients were added to the Ninja blender cup, and in ten seconds it was done. It takes longer to spoon it all out into a dish! After that, I drizzled it with toasted sesame oil and red pepper flakes. The rolls are made from spelt, oats, brown rice and quinoi that I grind in a standard coffee grinder a bit at a time. This is an ideal recipe to add Diatomaceous Earth to, as the texture disguises it beautifully, and critters are drawn to carbs you enjoyed it with! Below is a simple alkaline/acidic food chart.
