Nutrition Tip

Garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas, Bengal grams, and Egyptian peas) are a type of legume with a smooth, nutty taste and buttery texture. Rich sources of fiber, protein and iron, these are a wonderful base for hummus.

The American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, and the American Cancer Society recommend legumes as a key food group for preventing disease and optimizing health. It's the dietary fiber content of legumes that researchers say can help reduce the risks of cancer and help lower cholesterol and promote bowel regularity.

Chickpeas are a great way to start the shift to a more plant-based diet, as the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans suggest. Their simple taste lets the spices in hummus come through, while adding a nutritional boost to a vegetarian wrap shown here.
