Gallbladder Friendly Hummus
Just about everything in hummus sets off a bad gallbladder, but with the magic of sprouting, you can turn those wonderful and evil beans into something that you can enjoy and won’t hurt you. You can also sub in walnuts and avocado for the seasame seeds if you can’t handle them in even small quantities—I find actual tahini is just too much sesame oil.
Goes good with greens and as a spread. Try it with celery in place of the peanut butter that you can’t eat anymore.
¾ cup garbanzo beans, sprouted
2 tablespoon flax oil
2 tablespoon flax seed, ground
2 tablespoon cillantro, chopped fine
1 tablespoon seasame seeds
2 tablespoon pickle juice
2 teaspoon sea salt, (or to taste)
½ cup walnuts, (optional)
½ avocado, (optional)
Ideally one could just dump it all in a food processor and blend it until creamy smooth. I don’t have one, though, and just wholloped on it w/ a potato masher until I was bored—slightly crunchy but just fine.
I also added a teaspoon of lemon-flavoured cod liver oil, since folks with gallbladder issues also have issues (usually old ones) with vitamin D and it just happens to add some lemon flavour. If vegan, add a tiny bit of lemon zest.
