Hummus: Vegetarian Cuisine in Koh Samui

Makes approx 250 grams

This popular Middle Eastern spread is rich in fibre, protein, iron and folic acid. It helps to stabilise blood sugar levels, making it a great dietary addition for diabetics. It is a staple of the Middle Eastern diet, where it is enjoyed at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Serve with vegetable crudités or flatbreads, use it on sandwiches or even add it to pasta dishes for a healthy cream sauce.
