Saturday Snack Spotlight – Hummus

Who’s a fan of hummus? I love it, and so doesn’t my husband!

Hummus is made of chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, tahini, lemon juice and salt. Sometimes it has other added ingredients, like red pepper or pine nuts. It makes a fantastic dip for raw veggies, crackers, pita bread… it also makes a nice topping on a sandwich!

Hummus is calorie-dense but also offers fiber and nutrients, which is perfect for a Diabetic!

Do you like hummus? Do you have a favorite kind? My faves are roasted red pepper, and spinach and artichoke – SO yummy!
