Making hummus at home is so simple to do and is generally always going to be healthier than the shop-bought versions!

Making Hummus from Canned Chickpeas

When you make hummous yourself from canned chickpeas, you have an endless choice of additional ingredients to use in your recipe.

This one is one of my faves and I’m sure you’re going to love it, too.

Nutritional Value of Radishes

Radish might not be one of the first things that come to mind when you are choosing how to flavour your hummus, but it’s great for both taste and nutrition.

These veggies have a natural spicy kick to them which is great for soothing sore throats and decreasing the presence of mucus in the body. This also makes them useful in clearing the sinuses and combatting colds.

Radishes are also known to be useful in aiding digestion, as well as tackling toxins in the body. Add to that they contain a combination of phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and fiber and you have a food that is great for the whole body!

Dill Nutrition Facts

Dill is a herb that is also incredibly healthy! It is believed to be useful in aiding digestion, relieving insomnia, and helping to prevent certain cancers and respiratory disorders.

Dill is also useful for boosting the immune system as well as helping to alleviate inflammation in the body.
