Hummus is the best. It’s quick, easy, high in protein, low in fat and loaded with fibre. And if you make it homemade (as we did last night) you’ll save big money, as health stores seem to price the stuff at a premium. But I guess that goes for anything healthy these days.
With left over chicken from our Chinese New Year dinner, we cooked up Moroccan-style cinnamon carrot chicken breasts and paired the dish with our first batch of homemade hummus.
Between us, our homemade hummus sucked. I won’t even bother including the recipe. I’ll just say this: make sure to chop your garlic up before throwing it in the food processor.
Now I leave you with a fun chick pea fact…

In Italian the word ‘ceci’ means both chick pea and wart. Long ago it was believed that you could cure warts during a noon moon by wrapping chick peas in a cloth, touching that cloth to your wart, and then chucking that cloth behind you.
