So, what makes this recipe so nutritious? Well, chickpeas, which are also known as garbanzo beans, are a fantastic source of plant-based protein. They also support satiety and help cut down on in-between-meal snacking. 

In fact, a 2010 study followed 42 participants and discovered that when they supplemented their diets with chickpeas, they reported eating less junk foods, feeling more satisfied, and having improved bowel function. Interestingly, when the participants stopped eating the chickpeas, they consumed more processed snack foods. [1] They’ve also been known to support both healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

In addition the cumin in this recipe has been found to decrease IBS symptoms within as little as two to four weeks. [4] It’s also known to contain anti-viral and antibacterial properties, which help to fight off infections. [5]

Now that you know the health benefits of this incredibly delicious Easy Homemade Hummus, let’s get to the recipe. You’re just 5 minutes away from a satisfying, tasty snack!
