Anyone on a diet can agree that it can be a challenge to find food that is both delicious and healthy. Often we find ourselves compensating flavor for health benefits.

But dieting doesn’t have to feel bland (or taste like it). Many of you are most likely familiar with hummus, the iconic Mediterranean dip.

Hummus is very popular in Middle Eastern countries.

You can trace the origin of hummus back to the Middle East, as early as the 13th century. It didn’t take long for the dip to gain popularity, and you will find many variations of hummus based on country–Egypt, Greece, Israel all prepare hummus with some modifications.
