U-Relish Farm is known for its diverse selection of crock pot cuisine. One pea dish, the Garlic Paprika Chickpea, can be served as a soup and can also be used to make a delicious hummus. The hummus, like the Spicy Cherry Blackbean soup, is easily restaurant quality. Once you taste it, you’ll keep coming back for more.
The eight-ounce bag contains three servings, which guarantees you’ll have plenty of hummus (or soup, if you decide not to make the hummus). When I made it, it filled a Bell jar and I still had some left over. I’d like to try making the soup with chicken, or adding some hot sauce or red pepper to the hummus. The fun thing about U-Relish products is the ease of experimenting, although everything I’ve had from there has been able to stand on its own.
According to Wikipedia, hummus is high in iron and vitamin C. It is also an excellent source of protein and fiber. When eaten with bread, it serves as a complete protein.
The dish has no preservatives and is vegetarian and vegan. Allergen notice: it is packaged in a kitchen that uses tree nuts.
The ingredients are chickpeas, garlic, paprika, lemon and cumin. The cumin gives the dish a bit of a chili kick.
The dish can be cooked in a one-quart crock pot. Add 6 cups of water or broth to the mix, and cook for seven hours on high. If you wish to eat it as a hummus, refrigerate overnight, then blend the mixture for two minutes on a high speed. Add one-fourth cup of tahini and lemon to taste.
A protein suggestion on the bag recommends serving over rice.
