Chocolate Hummus

October 12, 2018

We made CHOCOLATE HUMMUS in our 6th class of PLANT-BASED EATING FOR PERSONAL AND COMMUNITY HEALTH. Traditional Middle Eastern Hummus starts with a chickpea base and tahini, but that’s where the similarities end. Instead of garlic and lemon for a savory dip, we added cocoa and maple syrup for our sweet treat.  It was quite tasty, unusual, but good. We served it with a sprinkling of COCOA NIBS, pretzels and apple slices.

Hummus, whether savory or sweet, is loaded with plenty bone-building minerals from chickpeas. Beans of all kinds— Chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans, lentils, even soy beans—are great sources of nutrients that support excellent health. But watch out for ISOLATED SOY PROTEINS, which are highly processed into chemically changed particles causing irreparable damage to human health. Dr. John McDougall explains why and how and so much more in this talk: Osteoporosis and the Broken Bone Business
