Hummus is a popular Middle Eastern food dip usually served with pita bread. The chickpeas are rich in protein and the tahine paste made with sesame seeds, which are an excellent source of amino acids, make this a protein rich healthy snack.

Your hummus looks flavoursome and well balanced. I like that you have added some garlic to complement the nuttiness of the hummus. Adding some lemon juice must give this a lovely zingy, savoury taste.ReplyDelete
