Lacto – Fermented Hummus

Probiotic-packed with no preservatives or artificial flavoring hummus recipe.

Not the standard hummus recipe. What I am sharing with you today is hummus which has been fermented for several days using the lacto-fermentation process.

To do this with hummus (or almost any other condiment), just switch out some or all of the liquid for kefir whey. The beneficial organisms in the whey have a bit of a feast on the sugars in the food, and proliferate throughout. The result in hummus is that the organisms make it a little “fluffy” or “bubbly” from the gases they produce.

This is SUCH a great way to introduce healthy bacterias in your diet to help your gut health and overall well-being!
