In my cupboard I had the following:
Some dehydrated buckwheat.
Black sesame seeds.
Something that was unrecognisable.
Various herbs and spices.
So! I grated the beetroot, chopped the apple, put it in a bowl, sprinkled on some black sesame seeds and sunflower seeds, tossed it about, splashed a bit of sesame oil and tamari on, and THEN... the magic happened. The Buckwheat Hummus was born.
- 1 cup buckwheat (either sprouted or soaked and dehydrated)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tbsp's tahini.
- 1 tbsp cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp's olive oil.
- Salt and black pepper.
- Water to blend to desired consistency.
(please note- this is the version that I made using only the ingredients I had. You can add anything you like! Replace cider vinegar with lemon juice for a more authentic hummus taste, and add cumin to make it extra special)
Blend everything together and serve. I put mine on the top of the beetroot concoction with some finely sliced spring onions. And it tasted all the better for knowing that you can create something beautiful from very little if you just stay positive and look at what you have got. There is a lesson in there somewhere, i'm sure...
