Try this enhanced hummus dip to boost nutrition, increase digestability and feel fuller longer. The flavor is very similar to our familiar snack, but the tempeh adds a richness and depth unlike normal hummus.
What you will need:
1 10 oz cake chickpea tempeh
1 C water or stock
1/4-1/2 C Tahini
juice of 1.5-2 lemons
1 T lemon zest
3 garlic cloves
1/2 T sumac
salt to taste
olive oil to garnish before serving
First, you will want to cut CG chickpea tempeh into cubes or small pieces. Poach the tempeh in a fry pan in 1 cup of liquid for 10 minutes with a lid. Remove from heat and place the tempeh into another container. ***Save the liquid that remains and set aside.
Next, you will add the tempeh to a food processor along with tahini, lemon juice, garlic, sumac, tempeh liquid, salt and lemon zest. Blend until desired smoothness. I like mine extra smooth so I needed to add more water. I chose not to add olive oil because I was seeking a specific texture.
Garnish with more zest, olive oil, salt and sumac. This is so rich and wonderful and I cannot wait to make this for family and friends!!
