5 Flavours of Hummus that you can whip up at home!

Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini (a paste made from sesame seeds), olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt. It is a popular appetizer or snack, and is often served with pita bread, crackers, or vegetables.



Some benefits of hummus include:

  1. High in protein: Chickpeas are a good source of protein, and a serving of hummus can provide up to 7 grams of protein.

  2. Good source of fiber: Chickpeas are also high in fiber, which can aid in digestion and help regulate blood sugar levels.

  3. Rich in vitamins and minerals: Hummus contains various vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6, folate, iron, and manganese.

  4. May help reduce inflammation: Some studies suggest that the anti-inflammatory properties of chickpeas and tahini may help reduce inflammation in the body.

  5. May improve heart health: Chickpeas and olive oil are both high in heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which may help reduce the risk of heart disease.
