Hummus is a famous Middle Eastern dip or spread made from mashed chickpeas, tahini (sesame seed paste), lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil. It has a creamy texture and a nutty, slightly tangy flavour. It is commonly used as a dip for vegetables, pita bread, and crackers and also works well as a spread on sandwiches and wraps. Hummus is an excellent plant-based protein, fibre, and healthy fats source as a healthy snack or appetiser.
