Hummus is a popular dish commonly enjoyed in Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, around the globe.

What nutrients are in this?

Carrots have a bright orange colour, which means they are rich in vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene; they are also a great source of fibre, vitamin K1, potassium and numerous antioxidants. Another compound found in carrots is Lutein – which is an antioxidant that is extremely beneficial for eye health. It is also worth noting, that eating a healthy source of fat with carrots assists the body’s absorption of the vitamins.

Chickpeas contain considerable amounts of fibre, protein, vitamin B6 and manganese, as well as other nutrients, making them the perfect addition to your diet.

Tahini is also a rich source of protein, B vitamins, vitamin E, and minerals such as magnesium, iron, and calcium, which are great for protecting the heart.
