Hummus is a creamy, delicious middle eastern dipping spread, made popular in the vegetarian world, but ever relevant for the everyday eater! If you've wanted to steer from the traditional hummus recipe, this list has 8 variations, including a recipe for roasted red pepper hummus!
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
The basic ingredients for hummus are chickpeas, tahini (sesame paste), olive oil, salt and garlic, which can be found in the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern regions where this dish originated. Hummus bi Tahini literally means chickpeas with sesame paste and is the standard hummus recipe out there.
The Arabic word, Hummus has also been spelled hamos, houmous, hommos, hummos, hummous and humus and is popular in many countries throughout the Middle East. Greece and other Mediterranean countries are known to have a slightly different take on the hummus recipe.
Nonetheless, hummus is a vegetarian-friendly dish that is loved by vegeterians and meat-lovers alike. It is high in iron and vitamin C and pairs well with pita and raw vegetables. Some people put it on sandwiches in place of mayonnaise, or on toast in place of butter.
This sandwich is a vegetarian's delight! Fresh middle-eastern flavors of hummus and crisp produce between two whole-wheat slices of bread make for a fantastic and healthy lunch!
