Hummus

Read Dr. Kyla Smith's review Chewsday Review - Roasted Chic Peas

Here is my Chickpeas are packed full of fibre, protein and potassium and combined with vegetable crudités for dipping, it makes a fantastic snack or lunch box option.

You can also use hummus as a spread on sandwiches or crackers. You can use it as a salad dressing.

It really is very versatile. Tahini can be quite strong for little tastebuds so if you prefer you can increase the quantity to taste.
