Thai Coconut Hummus
If you’re eating a plant-based diet, there’s one question you probably receive more frequently than any other: where do you get your protein? Though such curiosity seems logical, many people simply aren’t aware of the high levels of protein in plants. For example, chickpeas have around 14 grams of protein per cup. Also known as garbanzo beans, chickpeas also contain around 14 grams of dietary fiber which dominates the 0 grams found in animal protein. Our favorite way to eat these little super beans involves a creamy Middle Eastern dip. Take hummus to the next level by adding some of aha’s SWEET CHI Butternut Squash Bisque! This powerful combo adds extra health benefits such as reduced inflammation, lots of vitamin A and C, and high levels of carotenoids to protect against heart disease. SWEET CHI hummus has the perfect balance of Thai spices and sweet squash to leave dippers everywhere satisfied. This recipe is quick, easy, and free of added oil and preservatives! So next time an inquisitive omnivore analyzes your protein intake, just let the hummus do the talking.
