Your new favorite?!? Garbanzo beans, tahini, sesame oil, lemon juice, curry (coriander, fenugreek, turmeric, and red pepper), garlic, cayenne, paprika, onion powder, and just a touch of salt. Just a bit of heat on the aftertaste. Garbanzo beans contain vitamin K, folate, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, choline, and selenium. Garlic is known to be an antioxidant, and has been found to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol. It may also decrease the frequency of colds in adults. Peppers, including Chilies, Cayenne, and Jalapenos, have been used to fight cancer, lose weight, prevent bacterial growth, fight the common cold, help stop migraines and improve eyesight. Peppers contain capsaicin, a phytochemical that systematically interferes with pain reception. NOTE: Hummus can be eaten (and temporarily stored) at room temperature based on the ingredients and preparation (we use dried herbs). It will last longer if refrigerated (about a week) or frozen (about a month) before use if you don’t consume it right away. If it ever doesn’t live up to your expectations we will make it right — just let us know!
