White Bean Hummus

White Bean Hummus

You may have noticed that I’m a huge fan of hummus, and that’s why I always try to combine it with new ingredients. In this recipe, I added organic white beans with mediterranean spices to create a smooth and creamy vegan hummus. Did you know that white beans offer a generous quantity of magnesium, which can help your body handle stress better. They are also packed with slow digesting carbohydrates and have a low glycemic index, which is good for your blood sugar level.

Raw Beetroot Hummus

Raw Beetroot Hummus

I love the flavors of Middle Eastern food, especially from Lebanon, Turkey, and Morocco. To make this hummus, I added Zatar and a little chilli, which goes very well with the earthy flavour of the beetroots. Zatar is an herb that grows in the Middle East and tastes similar to thyme and oregano. In the Lebanese cuisine, it’s being used with sesame seeds and olive oil to create spreads for flat breads. Beetroots, especially when raw, are a very good source of vitamins and minerals. They are packed with antioxidants to keep our immune system healthy. A real super food!

Walnut and Hazelnut Crackers

Crackers make for a nice snack and are also great as an appetizer when welcoming guests. In this recipe I added hazelnuts and walnuts combined with a little spicy chilli powder. Baking your own crackers is great because you can get very creative with different herbs or spices. I love trying different ingredients to see what the outcome is. And the best part: you only have to mix the ingredients, spread them out, and let them bake in the oven – easy, quick, and delicious.

Flaxseed Sesame Crackers

I’m always trying new ways to prepare carb-free crackers, and I’d like to share the following recipe with you. The ground sunflower seeds and the eggs create a slightly denser texture, and the cumin and paprika powder add a nice flavor. Feel free to add or replace different spices as you prefer, for example, rosemary or thyme. You can get really creative – perhaps I’ll try tomato powder next.

Sweet Potato Hummus

Sweet Potato Hummus

Hummus is always a great snack in between or as a tapa or meze when welcoming guests at your home. In this recipe I used sweet potatoes, which are not only delicious, but also a great source of beta-carotene, which helps raise the vitamin A level in our blood. Adding olive oil helps to extract the beta-carotene benefits of this root vegetable even more.
