Homemade Healthful Hummus

Mediterranean food always been one of my favorite cuisines. Especially hummus since its so versatile & super tasty. Definitely top tier eats.

Hummus is made with chickpeas, which are high in plant based protein & a great source of fiber. I recommend this recipe for new beginner culinarians. Not many ingredients & you can pair this & use it as a base for other dishes.
