I prefer to make hummus (it's super easy if you have a food processor). It's a dip. You can dip veggies in or we like to dip flatbread (or pita) in it as a snack.
I absolutely love hummus. It is good on cracker spreads. Or dip cut up red peppers in it. It is tahini chickpeas garlic and lemon.The tahini in the humus actually acts as an natural antidepressant.
its good with pita bread or triscuits, you can also put in on sandwiches.
its made from chick peas
Quoting SaraNicole1019:I found this recipe just now on pinterest and it's hummus on whole wheat bread with Avacado and a roasted tomato. I'll definitely try and do that! It's good for you, right?
It's good for you, but you have to be careful about that.
Meaning, you have to be aware of what it consists of and of portion control and what your entire diet is like.
Tahini is high in fat and it's a component of hummus, which gives it some fat (it's a healthy fat, but it still has calories as a fat). If you also have avocado, which is also a healthy fat but a fat, you could add up to a bunch of calories without paying much attention.
Making your own would probably be the best tasting one. I'm fortunate enough to live near a Mediterranean restaurant, so every now and then I'll go in and get me some hummus made that day. Otherwise, a great brand to buy at the grocery store is Sabra. Theirs is very good!
It's pretty thick, but it's a great "dip" for almost any veggie. And with pitas, and I'm sure with a lot of crackers (someone else mentioned triscuits, I think?).
I like it better with white cannellini beans. I dont like chick peas. But google it. There are a ton of recipes for it and it tastes better than any of the store stuff I've bought.
