Hummus is an easy oriental chickpea dish that is usually consumed for breakfast as a spread or a dip with flatbread, flatbread chips and raw vegetables. Over time the simple classic taste of hummus got many different variations in taste and colours, e.g. red hummus blended with ajvar and chilli, green hummus mixed vegetables such as green peppers or peas, blended with mays corn or carrots, and many others.
Eating hummus for breakfast gives a high boost of energy in the morning due to the presence of a high amount of carbs. It’s rich in carbs, high in proteins and easy for the digestive system. It’s nourishing and very healthy if drizzled on top with a bit of virgin olive oil.
As a side dish it can be served next to vegetable or seitan fritters, vegan black bean burgers, but it tastes great too served together with air fried potato fries and breaded aubergines and champignons. It can last in the fridge up to 3 days, but it tastes best when freshly made.
