Recently proclaimed as a favorite “new offering.” This hummus is crafted from garbanzo beans, pecans, olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, and salt. Pecans contain vitamins and minerals such as manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. They also contain monounsaturated fats such as oleic acid along with phenolic antioxidants which help reduce the risk of heart disease. Thyme has been used to treat bronchitis, whooping cough, sore throat, colic, arthritis, upset stomach, stomach pain (gastritis), diarrhea, bedwetting, a movement disorder in children (dyspraxia), intestinal gas (flatulence), parasitic worm infections, and skin disorders. Garbanzo beans contain vitamin K, folate, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, choline, and selenium. 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!
