Humus is a popular meal from the Middle East, and has become a trend in nutrition over the past decade. It is increasingly found on the table of our housewives, precisely because of its nutritional properties.
The Arabic spread of humus is made from cooked leblebies, pasta from sesame, lemon and garlic, and is very good for health because it contains many vitamins, minerals and healthy fats.
The basic ingredient of humus is leblebia, a plant that is an excellent source of iron.
Many people who opt for vegan or vegetarian food are concerned about the iron deficiency in the body, which makes them try to present humus on their daily menu.
“Additionally, Leblebium also contains vitamin C that helps iron absorption,” explains Sara Vikers for Medical Daily, adding that the consumption of humus can help people with anemia problems.
Because of the wrong belief that only the meat contains many proteins, there are many plants that contain this substance – and humus is one of them.
Humus is a rich source of protein, produces a longer sense of satiety and prevents overeating.
“If you want to reduce the intake of processed animal fats, you can use humus as a substitute for butter or mayonnaise,” Sarah advises.
The humus itself has excellent taste, and on the market you can find this spread with chili, avocado, peanut.
