Thanks to Mediterranean cuisine for giving us this exciting dip! Chickpea is one of the most versatile beans that abounds in all major nutrients like vitamins A and C, iron, calcium as well as fibre.

Hummus makes good use of this useful bean, by making it into a chutney-like form that can be used as a spread for breads or as a dip for finger foods.

Garlicky Hummus is a healthier version of the traditional Hummus, which makes use of loads of olive oil. In this Diabetic friendly version, we have drizzled just half a teaspoon of olive oil as part of the garnish, along with herbs and spice powders for a peppy flavour.

We also suggest serving it with fibre-rich cucumber and carrot sticks rather than pita bread.

Great low cal version. Used low fat curds and note that the olive oil consumption is only 1 tsp. At restaurants, you will get 2 or 3 tablespoons olive oil which makes this very unhealthy.
