Mung Bean Hummus with garlic and lemon | Easy Hummus Recipes #GlutenFreeVegan

Garlic Lemon Mung Bean Hummus

Hummus is a great source of protein – we have the classic Chickpea Hummus, Indian-Spice inspired Roasted Carrot Hummus, Beetroot Hummus, Roasted Bell Pepper Hummus. Today’s dish is a simple yet 100% delicious and vegan Mung Bean Hummus.

Mung Beans / Moong Beans are a versatile ingredient lending itself from Mangodi (sun dried moong dal fritters), Curries to Burger Patties to Chaat and even stir fry / salad. If you have a sweet tooth, why don’t you check out this superbly delish and melt in the mouth Rajasthani Moong Dal Halwa that Aruna has posted with split moong dal.

This hummus is made with soaked and cooked Mung Beans and goes well with crudités and / or Pita Chips. The spice level is fairly low in this Hummus as I was making it for the kids, but please feel to make any changes that you need?

    Wow, that is a different kind of hummus recipe. Moong has such a lovely earthy flavour so am sure this mung bean hummus must be so flavourful. A good way to enjoy moong besides in the curry form.

    Moong bean hummus wow you made the regular chickpea hummus more nutritious. Loved the idea. I always use moong bean in chila, appe or other dishes because my family members don’t like moong bean as dal. So happy to get a new idea to feed this nutritious bean to my family members.
