I always have a lot of hummus in the fridge because it’s my favorite snack. As I eat a lot,I told myself that it would be more economical to do it myself, in addition I can control the ingredients that I put in my recipe.
You can also make this recipe with dry chickpeas, which you need to soak overnight, and cook the next day. It takes longer but it’s just as delicious.

With all the vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber, chickpeas have a lot of health advantages.2
PROMOTES HEART HEALTH
Chickpeas are high in fiber, containing 16% of your daily needs in one half-cup serving. About one-third of the fiber in chickpeas is soluble fiber, making it a heart-healthy food. Studies have shown that people who eat fiber-rich diets typically have a reduced risk of heart disease.3
MAY HELP PREVENT SOME CANCERS
Several of the nutrients and compounds in chickpeas may protect against certain kinds of cancer.
- Fiber: Protective against colorectal cancer3
- Butyrate: Protective against colorectal cancer4
- Saponins: Protective against multiple types of cancer5
- B vitamins: Protective against breast and lung cancers6 7
REGULATES BLOOD SUGAR
Chickpeas, like other legumes, contain resistant starch that slows down the digestion of carbohydrates. Some resistant starch is not digested in the small intestine at all.
At least one study has shown that replacing more rapidly digested carbohydrates with legumes enhances glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity in people with diabetes.8
IMPROVES COLON HEALTH
Consuming foods high in resistant starch like chickpeas may also improve the health of the digestive system by promoting healthy bowel flora.3
Foods that are high in fiber and protein can help you feel full and consume fewer calories overall. Research comparing chickpeas with white bread found that study subjects who consumed chickpeas had better glycemic control and suppressed appetite and calorie intake.9
A review of research found that including pulses (certain legumes, including chickpeas) in a diet leads to a weight loss effect even when diets are not designed to restrict calories.10
