When you think of dill, what comes to mind?
Maybe a garnish on fish?
Dill can be so much more! And it’s so good for you. I found this graphic that outlines some of the health benefits of dill. There are so many great reasons to eat dill, but I’m pretty sure my favorite is unusual:
“Can halt the hiccups.”
Seriously? Amazing. I HATE the hiccups. And I can’t ever just get them once. As soon as my body opens the door to hiccups, they just come on in as they please, off and on, all.day.long.
So, I got dill (aka hiccup ninja herb) in my CSA box this week.
I wanted it to be more than a sprinkling on a hard boiled egg.
SOOO, I made dill hummus. Wanna make some? It’s pretty simple:
2 cans organic garbanzo beans, drained.
1/4 cups plain yogurt
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
4 tablespoons freshly chopped dill leaves, plus extra for garnish
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 teaspoons hot paprika, plus extra for garnish
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Pulse all in a food processor until smooth. Serve with veggies, pita chips or a SPOON.
Get more from your food.
Take that parsley and make it the focus of your dish, not just an accessory.
Make your cilantro the star.
Turn that butternut squash into the main course, not just a side.
Get creative, think outside the box, and (in some cases) enjoy the hiccup-free benefits.
