22 Ways to Eat Like A Greek Islander
Dip into homemade hummus
Hummus, traditionally made with chickpeas, is rich and creamy without the saturated fat of dairy-based dips. Plus, it's naturally high in fiber and proteinand delicious on a whole-grain pita or when served with crudités.
There are plenty of variations on hummus; it can be made with peas or black beans, and mixed with everything from red peppers to (for the truly adventurous) chocolate. For a true Mediterranean experience, however, try a traditional chickpea recipe flavored with garlic and sun-dried tomatoes.
Try these recipes:
- Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus
- Mint-and-Pea Hummus on Flatbread
- Spiced Black Bean Hummus with Marinated Peaches
