Low Chemical Hummus - Suitable for The RPAH Elimination Diet

intolerances recipe Sep 19, 2022

Most people, even those with the 'windiest tummies' can tolerate a small amount of legumes. We recommend starting with a teaspoon of hummus or canned brown lentils (rinsed well) if you are unsure and gradually increasing the amount to establish your threshold level. Dried legumes should be soaked for at least 18 hours to remove most of their poorly absorbed sugars which are responsible for producing gas. Don't forget to discard the soaking water and use fresh water for cooking.

  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Flat Teaspoon Citric Acid (optional)
