MUNG BEAN HUMMUS WITH A TWIST!

MUNG BEAN HUMMUS image This is my take on Hummus, since I love the mighty Mung Bean! It’s a bit out of the box, but that’s a good thing if it tastes good, and that it does!!! Mung Beans are super high in protein and fibre which reduces the carb value! They are so versatile and delicious, that I continue to experiment with them. The raw Sesame Seeds adds a little crunch and the Lime Juice really compliments the combined flavours! Hope you like!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup Mung Beans

2 cups Water

1 large clove Garlic, more if you like Garlic

1/4 cup raw Sesame Seeds

1/4 cup Olive oil

1/4 cup Fresh Lime Juice

Sea Salt, to taste

Cayenne

METHOD

Rinse beans and cook in 2 cups of water for approx 40 min, till soft and let cool.
