What makes Palouse Brand so special???

Five generations ago the Mader Family started farming. Their farm operations span across the southeast part of Washington State and are headquartered in Pullman, Washington. In 2001 they acted on an opportunity to add a cleaning facility to their operation. Their cleaning plant, Palouse Trading, is located in Palouse, Washington, just north of Pullman. Originally named Wallace Grain and Pea Company in the 1930s, Palouse Trading was designed for quality instead of quantity as is their cleaning plant. It has cleaned legumes and grains for the international market and domestic consumption. Their food is appealing to their consumers because of its nutrition, aesthetics and trace-ability to their farm fields.

I received Palouse Brand Hummus Trio!! It is one of their Year of The Pulse Specials.

What is a Pulse? A pulse is a part of the legume family but pulse refers to the dried seed where legume refers to all fruits enclosed in a pod. Examples of pulses are dried chickpeas, lentils and green split peas. 

Year of the Pulse Specials: 2016 has been declared by the United Nations as the International Year of the Pulse or "IYP". This year will give pulses an opportunity to step into the spot light and for people to learn more about them. Pulses are important to both our diets and the environment. Not to mention cooking with pulses is easy, affordable and a great source of protein and fiber.

This Hummas Trio Year of The Pulse Special is only $37 and includes FREE shipping!!

All you need to make healthy homemade hummus with their kit is water and oil.

Their Delicious Flavors!!

  • Bare Hummus: No more searching the internet for a plain hummus recipe. Although this hummus recipe is anything but plain! The toasted sesame seeds and creamy garbanzo beans shine in this authentic hummus kit. Pair with vegetables, flavored pita chips, warm pita bread or use to make falafel. 

  • Mediterranean HummusThis decadent hummus recipe has a distinctive lemon flavor with hints of cumin and other aromatic spices. This tempting hummus is complimented by its appearance which is lavishly speckled with spices. Pair with vegetables, naked pita chips and pretzels. 

  • Garlic and Herb HummusIf you are looking for a tantalizing hummus recipe, look no further. This mouth-watering hummus is rich in garlic and chives. To make these hummus recipes even creamier peel the garbanzo beans after cooking. Make a great spread for sandwiches and wraps.
We decided to make a lot of hummus all at once and freeze it in small portions. That way when we want more we can just pop a bag out of the freezer and it will thaw quickly to snack on. Hummus can stay frozen for at least four weeks. You can keep it frozen longer but the consistency may change so we made enough for 4 weeks and made enough to give away to a few family members.
Before you begin the process of making your hummus you need to soak your beans over night. Make sure you add plenty of water.....your beans will swell so also make sure you are using a large enough bowl so they don't spill out once swollen. Once they have soaked over night you want to rinse your beans well. Get them all nice and clean!! 


Now that your beans are clean put them into a pot on the stove with plenty of water.Palouse Brand Hummus bags have the exact measurements you will need so it's super simple. I made big batches so I multiplied the recipe on the back of the bag according to the amount of beans I used in each batch.
Palouse Brand Hummus Kits include all the spices you need to make your scrumptious hummus.

All you need to do is get out your olive oil so you can add the required amount to the sesame seeds. You want to blend the sesame seeds and olive oil in your food processor until seeds are moist.


Once I blended my oil and seed mixture I poured it into cups so I could measure it out for each of the batches I was making. Next I poured my beans into the food processor, added the required amount of water, added my oil/seed mix and blended until it became the consistency I prefer.

The last step is to add the spices into your hummus. The back of the bag will also tell you how much to add to your batch.  



See making hummus with this kit is truly super simple. You will never buy another overpriced mini container of hummus again. Palouse Brand Hummus kits are amazing.
