My Favorite Hummus

Time: 10 min

Level: Easy

Hummus is a wonderful food. Rich in fiber, protein, useful fats and also it is very versatile. As a side dish, with raw vegetables, with bread, for breakfast, lunch or dinner… I always have some ready in the fridge. I don’t recomend snacking, but if you accidentally get hungry, it makes a lovely afternoon snack that won’t raise your insulin as something sweet would do.
