Make It Yourself: Hummus
Hummus is so common now that some people might not even realize that hummus is not a food, but in fact a kind of dip. So, what’s in hummus, then? Well, it’s made from chickpeas and tahini (aka sesame paste) with garlic, lemon, olive oil, and ground coriander for seasoning. It’s easy to make, especially with canned chickpeas, and it’s tastier than anything store bought. Once you get the hang of how to make hummus, you can tweak the flavors to your liking. Try mixing it up with roasted garlic cloves, roasted red peppers, or even jalapeño.
