Jackfruit Seeds Hummus

The internet is buzzing about the benefits of jackfruit. Did you know that the seeds are also highly beneficial to health. I have grown up on jackfruit seeds curry. It tastes delicious – a lot like chestnuts actually. Many health experts feel that these seeds should be a part of our daily diet. They contain zinc, vitamins, and fibre, which builds for stronger immunity. They can be roasted and eaten as a snack too.

Since we are in the middle of a pandemic, a healthy immune system is a must. This is the perfect time for you to experiment with these magical seeds.

This hummus is delicious with pita bread, tortilla chips, veggies, crackers, etc. You have to peel the seeds after boiling them and then blend with the other ingredients. I hope you will give it a try. This makes about a cup of hummus.

PREP: 15 minutes COOK TIME: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients

1/2 cup jackfruit seeds

2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 tsp lemon juice

3 tsp tahini

Pink salt/Kosher salt

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil plus extra for garnishing

Sumac for garnish (optional)

Instructions

Wash the jackfruit seeds well. Cover with enough water in a small pan and boil until the seeds are cooked through. Drain and cool. Peel the seeds by removing the outer skin.

Blend all the ingredients in a high-speed blender until the mixture is smooth and creamy, using a little iced water to achieve the consistency that you desire. Transfer to a bowl and garnish with the remaining olive oil and sumac powder.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
