All About

Hummus

Hummus, a traditional Middle Eastern dip, requires only a few basic ingredients. Chickpeas are blended with lemon juice, garlic, and tahini, a sesame seed paste. From there, the variations are endless. Hummus can have added spices and the chickpeas can be swapped for other legumes or even vegetables.
