Hummus GAPS Style

I have eaten hummus before, but not very often.   I recently bought some tahini as sesame is apparently a source of calcium and naturally there was a hummus recipe on the jar.

But we can’t eat the main ingredient – chickpeas – on GAPS.  Chickpeas are not on the recommended list.  So I thought I’d try a GAPS Friendly version using small white navy beans.  This recipe calls for some foresight as you need to have already prepared the beans.  To make mine I soaked the beans overnight in water, changed the water in the morning and soaked them until evening.  Then I put them into a crockpot using broth instead of water, added in a few strips of bacon, some fatty ribeye bones leftover from a few weeks ago and let them cook all night.  When I make beans like this I tend to make a big batch so that I can freeze the leftovers. Then when I want to make something like this I can just pull out the beans from the freezer and make the recipe.  I also have soaked the beans for twenty-four hours and then divided into two cup portions and frozen them so that step it out of the way.

Hummus Style Dip GAPS Friendly

  • 2 cups small white navy beans, cooked
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup grapefruit juice
  • 3 large cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

Place all ingredients into a food processor and whir until smooth.  Salt to taste.  I prepared some carrot and celery sticks, and cucumber moons and had them with this dip.  It was pretty good.

A couple of notes: You could use any kind of citrus, in fact the original recipe called for lemon or lime juice.  I only had one grapefruit on hand, so I went with it.  Also, I measured the beans cold and they were pretty juicy when they were done cooking.  The original recipe called for drained chickpeas.  If you choose to drain your beans, you may need to add in some liquid.  The texture of this “hummus” was thick but creamy.

As always, let me know if you try it!  I thought it had a fairly “hummus” type taste to it.
