Hummus: An Age Old Traditional Dish Served Fresh, Everyday at Shata
Hummus is an Arabic word meaning “chickpea.” It’s a traditional Middle Eastern dip or spread that is made from chickpeas that have been cooked and mashed, then blended with tahini (a paste made from sesame seeds), olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt.
But the health benefits of hummus is almost as rich as it’s history. It provides you with protein and a number of essential vitamin and minerals, and while it can be high in fat, it is mostly heart-healthy unsaturated fat. So basically, the exact fat that our body actually needs.
At Pita Cafe, hummus is just one of the delicious foods we serve up, every single day. For only $3.50, enjoy a delicious serving of hummus, smothered in olive oil and served with traditional pita bread.
