Ideal for sharing, this Middle Eastern recipe has become a classic party dip. We show you how to make it even more special by adding Palacios Chorizo.

Method

To make it easier, you can opt for pre-cooked chickpeas. Put them in the blender together with the peeled garlic clove, lemon juice, tablespoon of Tahini and the broth or water. Blend until you get a smooth cream. If you would like the hummus to be runnier, just add more broth or water.

Separately, cut the chorizo into thin slices and fry it in a skillet over a low heat. After about 3 minutes, raise the heat to make it crispy.

Finally, you just need to serve it on a small serving dish. Spread the hummus over the dish and top with the fried chorizo. Serve with pita bread.

NUTRITIONAL COMMENT

Here we have a different way of eating legumes. Hummus appears to originate from Ancient Egypt, and is a very popular dish throughout the Middle East, Italy, Turkey, Cyprus, etc.

Like all pulses, chickpeas are an important source of vegetable protein and fiber. Among the minerals it contains, we can highlight its calcium content; not forgetting the iron, magnesium and potassium it provides. It is an interesting source of vitamins E, B1 and B2.

The benefits of high dietary fiber content are not limited to maintaining bowel regularity and preventing hemorrhoids or diverticulitis. Fiber also helps reduce the risk of heart disease as it helps you to lower blood cholesterol levels and control blood sugar levels in cases of diabetes. A good supply of fiber in the regular diet will also be beneficial to increase the feeling of satiety after meals and prevent you from feeling hungry again soon after.
