Hummus made easy

I love chickpeas and therefore I love hummus. Chickpeas are a good source of plant protein and fibre and can be added to many a dish or simply roasted for a healthy snack. Adding chickpeas to soups, stews, curries, salads an roasted vegetables is an easy way to add more fibre to your family meals. Canned chickpeas are a great pantry staple but you can also cook up a large batch of dried chickpeas and keep them in the freezer. If you have something on hand, you are more likely to use it.

Easy to prepare, hummus is a nutrient-rich addition for any meal or snack. Hummus can be used in a number of ways to add the benefits of chickpeas to your diet.
