#hummusisafoodgroup, Hummus is a Food Group, Hummus as a Food Group, Vegan Plant Plate, Vegan Food Groups
Hummus just cartoon-bombed the Plant Plate!
Here at Kale Crusaders, we try to keep up with the latest food trends and movements. We've been late to one party, though: the "Hummus is a Food Group" phenomenon has been gaining momentum for quite some time now.  There are already t-shirts and hash tags devoted to this dietary movement.

Thanks to Jess from Cupcakes and Kale for bringing us up to speed!

Here's a a little disclaimer for the hummus purists out there.  "Hummus" means "chickpea" in both Arabic and Hebrew, and many folks from the Middle East insist that that hummus is, in its purest form, a smooth spread made from chickpeas and tahini.  Hummus lovers outside of the Middle East, on the other hand, sometimes refer to any smooth bean spread (throw in other ingredients! with or without tahini!) as hummus.


  1. This one is great! I love it! I could eat hummus for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (and often do). It's definitely a food group in my book!

    1. Yay! Thanks for stopping by! Hummus is a favorite breakfast treat here at Kale Crusaders Headquarters. :)
