Looking to add beans to your diet? Hummus is a great option since its base is chick-peas. But don't settle for the plain old savory type that you eat with carrots and cucumbers. Branch out and go for a sweet version that pairs great with apple slices. Adding dried fruit gives you texture and both tart and sweet flavors. Since the liquid is removed, the sweetness becomes more concentrated so a little goes a long way.
