In Greece & the Middle East, it’s no secret that hummus is king and falafels are ever so popular! They are also used in stews and snacks in Africa and the Middle East. Hummus provides you with protein, iron, fibre and a number of essential vitamin and minerals, and while it can be high in fat (depending on the amount of olive oil and tahini used), it is mostly heart-healthy unsaturated fats.

The sun-dried tomatoes add a tasty tartness, which is balanced by the earthiness of the spices and sweetness of balsamic vinegar and honey.
