Homemade Hummus Recipe

Hummus with veggies

Hey!

Hummus is a common oriental dip – the name comes from the arabian word for chickpea. It is a perfect dip for your veggies and bread and is essential for more a lot of middle eastern dishes like Falafel.

 

The usual ingredients are chickpeas, a sesame paste called Tahina, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and spices like garlic and sometimes cumin – Hummus is really versatile though you can add your own flavor by adding chili paste, dried tomatoes or even mint. There are no limits though – Go crazy with your own ideas!

Here are two variations that I make on a regular basis:
