Hummus - The best of chickpea ... In a light version!
We're currently professionally translating all content. In the meantime, this article has been translated by Google Translate. Sorry if this isn't 100% relevant.
The hummus is a culinary preparation that is often found on the map of Lebanese restaurants. It is made from chickpea puree and tahini (sesame puree).
The consumption of hummus is particularly recommended the evening after the training for example. Indeed, according to its recipe, this emblematic dish of the Middle East is ideal because rich in antioxidants such as manganese and copper, it is essential to properly assimilate the iron, itself very present in this legume.
We also find in chickpeas an important source of folate or vitamin B9, which plays a fundamental role for the proper functioning of the nervous system, the immune system and the healing of wounds or muscle micro traumas ... Moreover, the zinc content in these small seeds is obviously no stranger to the good repair of our cells!
Some other B vitamins are also present, such as B6 and B1, which allow the resynthesis of muscle glycogen quickly.
Other interesting chickpea, its high fiber content - which is sorely lacking in our modern diet - and its high protein content.
In fact, chickpea is a particularly well balanced food in proteins, carbohydrates and fats. In its "hummus" form it contains sesame, rich in calcium and possessing anti-infectious properties.
The disadvantage of hummus is that it can become a little too fat and very caloric when you add a lot of oil ... that's why we offer below a lighter version:
Ingredients for 4 persons
- 1 can of 100 g chickpeas (drained weight)
- 50 g of white cheese 0%
- 1/2 garlic clove
- the juice of a lemon
- 1 tablespoons roasted and mixed sesame seeds
- 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
- Place drained and rinsed chickpeas, minced garlic, lemon juice, coarsely mixed sesame seeds, sesame oil and cottage cheese in the mixer bowl.
- Salt lightly, pepper
- Mix and taste
We only have to wish you a very good appetite!
