Ingredients

  • Optional: 2 T chopped fresh parsley
  • Water – to adjust consistency as needed

Personal tips

  • Using legumes of the brand Eden Organics is recommended – this company pressure cooks them before canning them so that the lectins are inactivated. Lectins are a type of protein found in beans, grains and nuts/seeds that can reduce the nutrient bioavailability of that plant-based food, especially in those of us who may have difficult digestion to begin with. This means that your body doesn’t absorb all of the vitamins/minerals that the food contains. Lectins also contribute to symptoms of gassiness and bloating that can happen when you eat beans.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend; add salt to taste and more water for desired consistency.
  2. Store in a glass container for up to a week in the fridge.
