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.
- Combine all the ingredients in a mixer and blend till smooth.
- Transfer the mixture into a serving bowl, garnish with olive oil, parsley and chilli powder.
- Refrigerate for atleast 30 minutes and serve chilled with cucumber sticks and carrot sticks.
