About Hummus

Ask anybody at a restaurant if they have ever had hummus, and chances are, most people, young and old, will have tried it at least once. This traditional Middle Eastern dish is globally recognized as a tasty spread worthy of any dining experience. Made of chickpeas and sesame seed butter (also known as Tahini) this creamy, savory bean dip has been a part of the human diet for thousands of years now -- mixed sources cite origins of the recipe anywhere from the 12th century to as old as 4,000 BC. Modern hummus recipes contain not only pureed chickpeas and Tahini, but also olive oil, lemon, and various spices.

Variations on the traditional hummus are numerous, as you can substitute all types of beans in for the usual chickpeas. Spices like cumin, cinnamon, chili pepper, garlic, or paprika all modify the flavor of a hummus, and the addition of fresh herbs like mint, parsley, or basil are a delicious finishing touch. Serve hummus as a dip for pita bread, chips, or tortillas, or smear it atop a sandwich for a nutritious and hearty spread.
