Houmous is packed full of essential nutrients like zinc, selenium and calcium as well as being a great source of healthy fats from the olive oil and tahini. Ready-made houmous makes a really handy snack, and it’s easy to make at home too.

How to make Homemade Houmous (Vegan + GF)

  • High in protein
  • Good source of fibre

With their high protein content, pulses such as kidney beans, adzuki beans, chickpeas and lentils are a great addition to a meat-free diet, which is why they are a favourite ingredient for many vegetarian and vegan dishes. Packed with fibre, they can also help promote good digestion, and are a good source of vitamins and minerals, such as iron, zinc and magnesium.
