Ingredients
  

  • 250 g cooked chickpeas
  • 100 g cooked beetroot
  • 30 g tahini
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Lemon juice to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil/sesame oil
  • cumin to taste

Instructions
 

  • For the quick version, use canned cooked chickpeas or cook your own. Start with soaking them in advance for at least 18 hours, rinse well and cook for about 30 minutes.
  • For a smooth humus and to avoid bloating, remove the peels before blending the ingredients. This step is optional, of course, but will make a difference, especially for a Vata type or generally for people with a low digestive fire who tend to bloat easily.
  • Cut the cooked beetroot (in water or even backed) in small pieces and start adding all the ingredients in a mixer. Use some water (50–100 ml. or more if needed) to help the mixture get smooth.
  • Eat it on toast, with vegetable sticks or use it even as a pasta sauce.

Notes

The caloric value was calculated per serving.
Recommendations for doshas:
• Vata: generally, chickpeas should be consumed in moderation. This recipe is more balanced and beneficial than a regular humus, due to the beets, which have a positive impact on Vata.
Additionally, it is recommended to eat it with some warm toast bread, avoid eating it with raw vegetables, sprinkle some cumin and fennel seeds, or have a warm tea with spices.
• Pitta: Is a good choice for Pita. Additionally, you can remove the garlic and replace the lemon juice with lime juice. In summer, for example, serve it with fresh cucumbers, which have a cooling quality.
• Kapha: Because of the beets, this meal has a natural tendency to increase Kapha energy. Reduce the amount of oil/tahini and add more hot spices like pepper.
