Hummus: That Topping you Can’t Resist!
Hummus is an Arabic word meaning “chickpea.” It’s a traditional Middle Eastern dip or spread that is made from chickpeas that have been cooked and mashed, then blended with tahini (a paste made from sesame seeds), olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt.
But the health benefits of hummus is almost as rich as it’s history.
It provides you with protein and a number of essential vitamin and minerals, and while it can be high in fat, it is mostly heart-healthy unsaturated fat. So basically, the exact fat that our body actually needs.
That is why we recommend you add it as a delicious, healthy topping to anything you order at Shata. In fact, it is one of our over 15 toppings you can choose from when you dine with us!
