Is hummus good for you?
Yes, hummus is good for you. The reason some people think hummus isn’t good for you is because it’s so delicious, it’s really easy to overeat. A single serving of hummus is 2-4 tablespoons.
That might not sound like a lot, but all the fibre and protein in this easy hummus should leave you feeling full after eating just a little. Stick to the recommended serving and hummus is one of the healthiest dips there is.
The primary ingredients in this easy hummus — chickpeas and avocado — are bursting with wholesome nutrients to nourish your body. Chickpeas are high in plant-based protein and fibre, helping you stay fuller for longer and supporting healthy blood sugar levels. Avocados are loaded with potassium and heart-healthy fats, helping to lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation.
Combine the two in this easy avocado hummus recipe and you’ve got an incredibly good-for-you dish.
What to serve with this easy avocado hummus
My favorite way to serve this easy hummus is to scoop it up with raw veggie sticks or crackers. But that’s not the only way you can serve it. As well as being a great dip, this avocado hummus is also a fantastic spread. You can use it instead of plain avocado to up your avocado toast game, you can slather it on a wrap and pile on your favorite fillings to make a fajita or even spread it thickly onto some whole grain bread and make an incredible grilled cheese sandwich.
