Directions

This Middle Eastern classic with a healthful twist will become staple in your house! Chickpeas are a great source of plant-based protein as well as complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber. Maca, on the other hand, contains compounds capable of nourishing the endocrine glands to regulate the body's hormone production, thus relieving the symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

  1. Place all of the ingredients - except for water - in a food processor or a high-power blender. Process until smooth.(2 minutes)
  2. Keep adding water until you reach preferred consistency.(2 minutes)
  3. Transfer into a bowl and garnish with olive oil, smoked paprika, and parsley. Serve with toasted pita bread. Enjoy it right away or refrigerate before serving.(1 minute)

Maca in this recipe can be easily replaced with powdered sacha inchi for an additional protein punch. Besides pita bread, hummus goes well on homemade veggie crackers or maca bread as well as with fresh vegetables, such as carrots, cucumber slices, or celery sticks.
