I got to thinking – why not ferment hummus? Sure why not? So I did it and it tasted great! It was a real winner with my husband and daughter. I have been experimenting much more with vegetarian recipes because I have to send in vegetarian lunches to my daughter’s new school. So here we go – fermented hummus it is!
Fermented Hummus Recipe
- 4 cups cooked chickpeas (recipe here for basic cooked chick peas)
- 2 Tbsp ghee
- 1/4 cup cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil (where to buy quality oils)
- 3 Tbsp tahini (where to buy)
- 3 cloves garlic (I used my fermented garlic I had on hand)
- 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 1/2 tsp salt (where to buy salt)
- 1/4 cup chickpea cooking liquid (see below – used to thin out the hummus)
- 1/4 liquid whey (how to make whey)
Puree all of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Put into a jar and leave out to ferment for about 7-10 hours. Then refrigerate! You can eat it at any time!
