What is hummus?


Hummus is a popular Middle Eastern dish commonly enjoyed today. If you're planning on hosting a social event, hummus dip makes a simple and satisfying appetizer that you can lay out for your guests to enjoy all night long. If you're not in the business of preparing items such as these from scratch, pick up a box of easy hummus mix (available in original or Spinach Parmesan) and make it in a snap.

Hummus (hummous), is available packaged. This wonderful Middle Eastern spread is made from chick peas and tahini. It´s also simple to make yourself. This is a common vegetarian "transition" food as almost everyone loves it at first bite.

The chick peas (or garbanzo beans) can be combined with salsa or chipolte for a Mexican flavored hummus, or with teriyaki sauce for a Japanese flair, or with any number of other flavors for a creative spread or sandwich filler.
