1. What's so great about hummus?

The word 'hummus' is actually Arabic for chickpea, as that's the main ingredient of this side. Chickpeas are high in protein and fiber, as well as having a great amount of B vitamins and manganese. It also manages to contain a lot of minerals and healthy fats, while being low in sodium and cholesterol. You might just be used to hummus as a dip for your crunchy vegetables. Yet the consistency of hummus makes it an excellent option for wraps, rolls, and sandwiches. You can also add it to your salad or salad bowl.
