Recently at a conference I discovered a trade display with this great tasting hummus dip and was told it was made with lupins. I had heard of lupins but didn't really know what they were or why I would want to eat them. I did know I wanted to make the dip so I thought I should find out a little more!
Lupins are a legume as chickpeas are however they are:
In this hummus style dip you use lupins rather than chickpeas. Nice for a change and a new ingredient to add to the pantry .
They are produced by a company called, 'The Lupin Co' or TLC for short. A little more 'TLC' never goes astray right, so read on, watch me cooking in the video and let me know how you go making this tasty lupin dip!
1 cup Lupin Flakes
2 small cloves crushed garlic
20ml dehulled tahini paste
20ml white wine vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
60ml extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp salt
10ml olive oil (for drizzling if desired on top)
I like to cut up vegetables for dipping (capsicum, snow peas, carrots, mushrooms- what ever veggies you desire)
Drizzled olive oil and sprinkled with paprika and dip away!
Great mid morning or afternoon snack, as a dressing on salad or spread on your sandwich or wrap. A good way to get in some protein between meals particularly for active people and athletes.
Look out for some more posts I will do together over the next few months with my partnership with The Lupin Company
