    Technically, no. It's a legume and they are generally excluded, but there are exceptions. Like green beans and fermented soy (in moderation; don't make tempeh a staple - at least I wouldn't).

    However, some Paleo/Primal/Ancestral Health people have lightened up on legumes (see Dr. Kurt Harris). I say if it makes you happy, have some every now and then. There are much worse things. If you're not making it yourself, check the ingredients to make sure it doesn't have crap like soybean/canola oil added.

    Hey another Brit primal! I love Hummus too but yodiewan is right, you have to check the contents. I picked one up in tesco the other day that had palm oil in it. I remember reading somewhere that palm oil is pretty crap, so I left it on the shelf. A good hummus will only have olive oil in it but they are hard to find !

    Hummus is also ridiculously easy to make, so that is probably the best way to ensure quality ingredients. Plus, you get to make all sorts of tasty alterations to the standard flavors.

    I just don't buy anything ready made from Tesco, Sainsbury or anything like that. The other day in a supermarket deli I saw olives - in sunflower oil!!!

    And I was given some delicious sweet spicy red peppers stuffed with ricotta which were delicious but slicked with oil which I bet was sunflower or soy or something (from Sainsbury).

    I make a variation on babaganoosh with added roasted red peppers. It's quite yummy. No problem with that unless you're one of the poor unfortunate souls who have to avoid nightshades.

    As for the humus, yeah, not primal. But if you make it yourself, you can make it a lot less bad if you soak and even sprout the garbanzos before cooking. That should eliminate a lot of the antinutrients. It's still carbtastic but if you're an active person, that shouldn't be a problem in reasonable portions.

    Ditto. It's creamier, tastier, and less time to make if you take the skins off the chickpeas.
    Warning: I'm the most laid-back primal gal you'll ever meet.

    it's one of the easiest damn things to make yourself, if you have a little food chopper thingy, and use canned beans. Just put all the ingredients together in the chopper & voila, hummus in a matter of minutes.

    however, as much as i like chickpeas, they don't like me, so hummus is one thing that i really don't miss at all!
