Hummus is easily prepared at home with some chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, salt, garlic and lemon juice. It’s very low in fat and high in iron. It also contains folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin C. Since its made with chickpeas, it has protein and dietary fiber along with zinc, calcium and other minerals.

With eating habits taking a healthier turn, hummus has become more popular in the Caribbean. It’s prepared for vegetarians and can be transformed with different ingredients.

It can be flavored in so many ways by adding a few ingredients such as avocado, beans, cilantro, tomatoes, jalapeños and more.

Hummus, a Mediterranean favorite, is absolutely great for you. A study by the New England Journal of Medicine shows that nearly 30% of heart attacks, strokes and deaths by people prone to heart disease can be prevented by switching to a Mediterranean diet, which has multiple health benefits.
