There is a very rare allergy out there to garlic. There is also a slightly more common garlic intolerance. The allergy triggers an immune system response; my husband suffers from an intolerance and the response is incredibly uncomfortable. Those who suffer from either the allergy or an intolerance can’t enjoy hummus, at least not as it is traditionally made. Traditional hummus has two ingredients that add more flavor than the rest, garbanzo beans and garlic. But you can make garlic free hummus recipes that taste amazing so you don’t have to feel left out if you have a garlic allergy or intolerance.
Having a garlic allergy or garlic sensitivity can be difficult but you can still enjoy these garlic free hummus recipes for a healthy snack!
You may be surprised by the number of dishes that are made with garlic. Garlic acts as a flavoring agent in salad dressings, vinaigrettes, marinades, sauces, meats, soups, stews and so much more.
That makes having a garlic allergy or intolerance very difficult. You will need to navigate your way through a restaurant’s menu very carefully.
The fact that this allergy is rare makes it even more difficult as most chefs and cooks don’t come across it very often.
