What is Hummus

 

Hummus is a dip traditionally made from chickpeas, tahini (ground sesame seeds), olive oil, garlic and lemon. It is popular in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cultures. There are countless varieties of hummus flavors or adaptations you can make, but the base of chickpeas stays constant, it is the defining factor. Chickpeas are a great source of plant-based protein as well as fiber.
