How to make a salad filling
I’m sure if you clicked here you love hummus as much as I do. I wanted to find a way to get the best of both worlds, without having to compromise for a side salad.
This loaded hummus salad is filling due to the high protein in the hummus, a combination of crushed brasil and hemp seeds to take the cake.
This salad is very high in plant-based fats, as well as being rich in complete proteins. All from the likes of the hemp seeds and avocado thrown into the mix.
Not to mention the high iron, selenium and omega content from the walnuts and brasil nuts; The hummus itself is highly nutritious, so makes for a perfect post-workout meal to refuel them muscles.
Is houmous healthier than salad dressing?
When you compare to the typical fatty dressings, and salad dressings with excessively added sugar, hummus is a considerably healthier choice to eat as a garnish for salad.
The high protein content, healthy fats and lemon juice naturally incorporated in the hummus, helps with the absorption of key nutrients and vitamins such as Vitamin A, C & K.
Does it pair well with salad?
Hummus pairs really well with salad? The garlicky, bold hummus flavour pairs very well with the subtle taste and crunchiness of salad ingredients.
The hummus also adds for an additional creamy, almost nutty texture, different to the typical salad dressing.
