Protein-Packed Hummus Delight
- 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- ½ teaspoon Sunwarrior Sea Salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons Sunwarrior Nutritional Yeast
- 2 scoops Sunwarrior Classic Plus protein, unflavored
- 2-4 tablespoons water (as needed for consistency)
- In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy.
- Add the nutritional yeast and protein powder to the food processor. Process again until all the ingredients are well combined.
- While the food processor is running, gradually add water, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency. The water helps to make the hummus smoother and creamier.
- Taste the hummus and adjust the seasonings if needed. You can add more lemon juice, salt, or spices according to your preference.
- Once the hummus reaches your desired texture and flavor, transfer it to a serving bowl. Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with some extra hemp seeds and paprika for garnish.
- Serve the protein-packed hummus with fresh vegetables, whole-grain crackers, or pita bread. It also makes a great spread for sandwiches and wraps.
