Hummus is usually a Middle East dish and is usually eaten as a spread or dip. Its nutritional benefits can be rooted from each of its ingredients. The chickpeas being low in fats, makes it a favorite for even the vegetarians. White sesame seeds or tahini adds on to the protein content of the recipe, while the healthy olive oil being high in monounsaturated fats helps regulate cholesterol improving heart health.The extra fiber in the pita bread slows down the digestion releasing sugars into the bloodstream at a slower rate.
