Almond Hummus introduction
When hummus first became readily available in stores around the world, many thought it was just a novelty that would quickly disappear. However, humus soon became very popular. Of course, this is due to the fact that it is very tasty, and at the same time made of extremely healthy ingredients.

You can easily adapt the taste of hummus by adding different ingredients such as jalapeno peppers, black olives, artichokes, but also nuts.
Hummus is traditionally made from chickpeas, which are also called garbanzo beans, tahini, or sesame paste, olive oil, lemon, cumin and garlic. Chickpea is a plant from the legume family.

Many nutritionists claim that chickpeas are a better choice even than meat. How great chickpea protein really is speaks for itself. On the other hand, almonds are among the best nuts, they are crunchy and tasty, and also full of essential nutrients.
