Last week I went on a little road trip with my grandma to Austria and I wanted to pack a light lunch for us. It should be super quick and easy to wrap up, as well as super nutritious at the same time. I ended up making this classic with a twist – Spirulina Hummus. When it popped into my mind, I was absolutely sure that I would be the first one to ever try this, a quick research told me otherwise, though. Still I thought I would share this little superfood pearl with you. Both my grandma and I absolutely loved it!
By the way I have been very much into superfoods lately, thanks to my discovery of Terra Elements. It’s a Munich based company (#supportyourlocalsuperfoodproducer) producing all kinds of amazing superfoods and raw foods, and they opened up a whole new world for me. Sounds silly, but it’s the truth. To be honest I didn’t see the need to spend my money on the often rather expensive superfoods, but now I really learned to love my weekly acai bowl, spirulina green smoothie or a special treat like my raw baobab cakes.
1 can of chickpeas (400 gram), drained
100 milliliter cold water
2 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon spirulina
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
sea salt and pepper to taste
Add all the ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth. Serve with pita bread or fresh veggies.
Note: I like my hummus quite smooth and liquid, you could always add the water gradually to find your perfect consistency. Also I chose to leave out the oil completely, since the tahini already is oily enough for me.
