A Sunrise Recipe: Hummus

By MD for Seniors

A traditional Middle Eastern dish, this appetizer is a favorite in our
Sunrise of Wimlette, IL, community. This particular hummus recipe has been passed down in our chef’s
family for generations because of its delicious flavor profile and versatility as a dip or spread.

Chickpeas, otherwise known as garbanzo beans, are very high in fiber like most other legumes.
Research has shown that the fiber in garbanzo beans can stabilize blood sugar and insulin secretion,
improve colon health, lower LDL cholesterol levels, and regulate appetite. Aim for 3 cups of legumes per
week to get optimal health benefits from these superfoods.
