Ayurvedic Hummus & Tahini

In Ayurvedic thought garlic is Rajasic, meaning it brings about excess stimulation that can interfere with digestion and overstimulate your mind. In its place, we’ve added digestive spices that increase Agni (digestive fire). You can try many different spices, including fenugreek, sumac, and or Hing (asafoetida). You can buy cooked garbanzos beans or cook them yourself.
