Homemade Hummus Recipe Description

Hummus is a creamy and savory dip or spread that originated from the Middle East. It’s made primarily from cooked and mashed chickpeas (garbanzo beans), blended with tahini (sesame seed paste), lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil. The texture of this hummus recipe is smooth and velvety. It’s often served as an appetizer with pita bread, crackers, or vegetable sticks for dipping. It also has health benefits since chickpeas are rich in protein, fiber, and various nutrients.
