Hummus is a staple of North Africa and the Middle East. This is my own recipe that has less fat than others as I don’t use Tahini which is high in fat. Hummus can be enhanced and modified in many ways. We usually serve it with whole wheat pita bread triangles that have been brushed with Olive Oil and toasted in the oven. This is a quick, easy, healthy and delicious recipe.
