Auntie Helen’s Hummus

I love my Auntie Helen’s cooking, it’s always clean, fresh and tasty.

She has been an advocate for healthy, organic, clean living for as long as I can remember & we love sharing recipes and ideas!

Being of Middle-Eastern descent I am no stranger to hummus and I just love this recipe from my Auntie’s kitchen.

Hummus is a great idea because it’s high in protein, and is also a good source of fibre, heart-healthy fats and essential vitamins and minerals.

It’s so versatile and makes a great addition to lunchboxes with some vegetable sticks, it’s a quick and easy dip to make when you have guests, and is a delicious accompaniament to many meat dishes ( I particularly love it with lamb).

Now here’s a few reasons why hummus is so good for you!

Chickpeas

Chickpeas are naturally low in fat, high in dietary fiber and rich in vitamins and minerals.

It’s a fibre rich food which can help promote a healthy intestine.

Tahini

Tahini is very easy to digest, and many of its nutrients find their way in to the blood stream within about half an hour of consumption.

Has high nutritional value, especially B vitamins which help prevent anaemia and are essential part of the running of the body and is a great source of fatty acids

Lemon

Vitamin C is an antioxidant and gives your body protection from free radicals, which damage your body and contribute to diseases. Vitamin C also helps strengthen your immune system.
