Nutrition Notes

This classic hummus recipe is a handy one to know because it uses chick peas which are full of fibre, protein and starch, a healthy food in and of themselves. For a more complete meal, you can serve chick peas with rice dishes, or alternatively make into a light snack like Hummus. It really does fill the gap on a busy day. Extra virgin oil is high in unsaturated fat which when used proportionately in cooking keeps our arteries working well.
