The best Darned Hummus we have tried!
To make Hummus you must have chickpeas, Tahini, olive oil, and lemon juice. The ingredient are easy to come by in your local produce store and even easier to make but to get the perfect taste is a whole new animal and can be disastrous to your taste buds if not concocted correctly.
We met Kelly a local dealer at Market night and he gave us a taste test of all of his different Hummus’s and we have to say they are all delicious depending on what your taste buds are yearning for. When we say all types we mean all types from spicy peppers, sweet styles, Gallic, Olive, and some others we didn’t think would be very taste but ended up being fantastic. Plus with their fresh made breads and chips you can get spoiled with all the flavors.
The cost is comparable to any supermarket at 5 dollars each or 3 for 10 but for that price you must understand this is fresh Hummus and cannot be compared to store bought that has been sitting on the shelves for a couple of weeks and even months. With Kelly’s booth he brings to you the best and most fresh hummus, pits chips, and related items across southern California.
Hummus is rich in proteins and great for vegetarians if they need proteins in their diets. Chickpeas do not contain cholesterols or saturated fats plus Chickpeas are also known to be effective in preventing buildup of cholesterol in the blood vessels. Apart from that, it can maintain correct blood sugar levels.
Tahini, meanwhile, is full of fat and calories. However, the fact that it is used sparingly in most hummus recipes and that it mostly contains unsaturated fat means there is not much to worry about. Like chickpeas, tahini is also high in protein. Apart from that, it is a great source of calcium.
The Olive Oil found in hummus is olive oil. As most people know, olive oil is a healthy fat. It has high monounsaturated fat content but low in saturated fat. This oil can thus help regulate cholesterol and protect the heart from various diseases.
Garlic and lemon juice, meanwhile, are filled with antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress in the body. They also work to improve immune functions and fight of bacteria and viruses.
Hummus as a whole contains plenty of Omega 3 fatty acids, which are great for improving intelligence and maintaining a healthy heart. On top of it all, this dish also has iron, vitamin B6, manganese, copper, folic acid, and amino acids. Tryptophan, phenylalanine, and tyrosine are the amino acids found in hummus that can promote good quality sleep and uplift one’s mood.
