Tofu and Flaxseed Oil Hummus – Linseed | Cold-pressed oil | Milled | Handmade Flaxjacks

Tofu and Flaxseed Oil Hummus

Tasty, Very quick, easy and economical

Depending on the palate(s) you are preparing this for you can make it mild or spicy, or flavour with many other veggies or spices.

This is as easy as simply putting ingredients in a blender. Know you’ve used good quality, fresh oil, herbs and spices. More economical than buying readymade.

Protein and Omega-3 are good for muscles

A tasty dip that can be made with any hummus, I prefer silken but works fine with more traditional tofu too.  Hummus with Tofu is a great way to improve your protein intake because tofu is a complete protein, unlike chickpeas and other pulses. Flax Farm cold-pressed flaxseed oil. makes this a useful way to enjoy more omega-3 in your diet.

Protein and omega-3 are both  essential for building lean muscle, this makes Tofu and Flaxseed Oil hummus ideal for those who want to be fit lean.

Tasty healthy eating, Low GI, low carb, high fibre

It’s very tasty and I particularly like it because it’s very low in carbs and sugar-free. Use keto crackers or celery sticks for a perfect meal for keto, low carb, diabetic and weight control diets.  It is also very low GI and high fibre so helps keep you feeling satisfied for longer.

Tummy friendly

Tofu is better tolerated than many other pulses.  Flaxseed oil and ground linseed are also kind to the gut, good for your gut biome and help your digestion work the way nature intended.

Recipe Alternatives

Feel free to use different herbs, fresh or frozen or no herbs.  Garlic isn’t essential, a milder version can be made with a little shallot or a dessertspoon of red onion. .  Nor is cumin essential, I like cumin  but feel free to use none or other ground spices. Try  paprika, cayenne pepper or chili powder (go gently on the hot spices) or blended spices such as zaatar.

Other tasty additions are char-roasted red peppers, concentrated or sun-dried tomatoes, caramelised onions, beetroot and turmeric  (remember to add black pepper too). Nutritional yeast is also a tasty, healthy addition and provides loads of vitamin B and flavour.
