Hummus

hummus

Recipe by Chef Jason Kieffer and Gina Van Luven.

Chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) are very high in fiber and are an excellent source of Protein, Folate, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and Zinc. Folate not only helps a pregnant mother have a healthy baby; but it also helps prevent cervical cancer and osteoporosis. It also acts as a natural antidepressant because it boosts serotonin production.
