Dr. Berg talks about the health benefits of hummus. Its composed of:
1. Chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
-improves insulin resistances and blood sugars. Its also high in the trace mineral molybdenum, which is great to detox the liver from toxins released from candida.
2. Tahini
-high in methionine (the amino acid that supports depression; and anti-grey hair factor.
3. Lemon
-great to prevent kidney stones and adds vitamin C.
4. Garlic
-one of the best anti-microbial foods around, also anti-cancer properties.
5. Sea salt
-93 minerals

Do not use pita bread, use vegetables to consume hummus. The fats and omega 3 fatty acids can buffer any insulin response helping you lose weight. It’s okay to have a moderate about of hummus on a ketogenic diet.

INGREDIENTS:
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas or 1 1/2 cups (250 grams) cooked chickpeas
1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh lemon juice (1 large lemon)
1/4 cup (60 ml) well-stirred tahini, see our homemade tahini recipe
1 small garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons (30 ml) extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt to taste
2 to 3 tablespoons (30 to 45 ml) water
Dash ground paprika, for serving

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the tahini and lemon juice and process for 1 minute, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process for 30 seconds more. This extra time helps “whip” or “cream” the tahini, making the hummus smooth and creamy.
Add the olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the whipped tahini and lemon juice. Process for 30 seconds, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process another 30 seconds or until well blended.

Open, drain, and rinse the chickpeas. Add half of the chickpeas to the food processor and process for 1 minute. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl, then add remaining chickpeas and process until thick and quite smooth; 1 to 2 minutes.
Most likely the hummus will be too thick or still have tiny bits of chickpea. To fix this, with the food processor turned on, slowly add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water until you reach the perfect consistency. Taste for salt and adjust as needed.
