Hummus is a popular Middle-Eastern dip made of ground chickpeas, tahini (sesame seed paste), lemon juice, and garlic, and often olive oil and paprika.
It is a nutritious food, containing a large amount of protein, dietary fiber, iron, and varying amounts of monounsaturated fat.
Once you find out how easy it is to make it yourself, you will never buy it premade again, as it tastes much better.
