What is this stuff??

Hummus seems to be an unholy monstrosity of impossible tastes and textures.

What’s inside

Basic hummus is nothing more than

  • extra virgin olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • salt

What’s so good about it?

Hummus is really rich in protein and iron, which is incredible news for vegans.

Fibre

According to the findings of a 2008 study by Jane Pittaway, hummus isn’t just a great source of fibre; our body is also able to absorb the fibre a lot more efficiently than with bread and cereal.

Microbiome

Perhaps the biggest reason of all for starting to eat more hummus may be the way it impacts our microbiome.

To sum it up

Hummus isn’t just delicious, it’s incredibly good for you and super easy to make.
You can easily add it into your daily eating habits by spreading it onto sandwiches, stirring it into pasta, and using it as a dip with chips.
