Hummus: from on 2004-07-15

Should hummus be in the starchy or protein group?
I read on some food combining site about hummus and pita bread as an example of a good combo. But isn't hummus made of chick peas? So isn't chickpeas a protein? Can somebody explain it to me

I would regard chick peas as being relatively high in protein as you suggest. I would serve hummus with raw vegetable sticks.
