What is Hummus?

Hummus is an Arabic word meaning chickpea.
It has been eaten in Egypt and the Middle East since a long time ago, but it is unclear which country it originated from. So, in the Middle East, each other claims that their country is the origin, but there is no evidence yet.

What Are the Ingredients in a Hummus Recipe?

As it is a food made and eaten by many people in many countries, it is made with various ingredients.
Of course, chickpeas are the main ingredient, plus lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil. Also add tahini. Is the name unfamiliar? Do not worry.
Tahini is sesame seeds. In the Middle East, peel and grind very finely, mix with olive oil and eat a lot as a sauce. I also add cumin powder.
Depending on your taste, you can also add finely chopped red pepper, cilantro, or parsley and mix them.
Mostly put it in a bowl and sprinkle olive oil, paprika powder, cilantro or parsley, or mint on it as a decoration.
