I was recently asked this question, So here’s the answer and I’ll warn you it may turn your stomach.
Houmous is so expensive to buy in supermarkets, but is relatively cheap to make at home, plus you can tailor it to your own specific taste. Houmous is a great source of fibre, protein, iron and calcium, it’s super stuff for Vegans.
After a routine blood test, my Doctor tells me I’m folic acid deficient and she believes the cause to be dietary, because I’m Vegan?! Which is insane.
