I confess that I'm mad about Hummus. I've tried just about every concoction and flavour invented, and I've yet to meet a Hummus I didn't like, and devour. Add in some fresh pita, tortilla chips or veggies and I'm in culinary snack heaven. Hummus may be a Middle Eastern invention, but there is no denying the mainstream popularity of this chick pea delight in North America and around the world.
Sure Hummus is in just about every grocery store these days. However, like most foods, Hummus is actually incredibly easy to make at home. Hummus is also one of the most customizable recipes you'll ever encounter.
The primary ingredients for making fresh hummus include chick peas (garbanzo beans), tahini, lemon and extra virgin olive oil.
Here are some of the best recipes showcasing the most delicious and easy recipes for making hummus.
