The best hummus recipes - 16 recipes

By lazar

Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip or spread traditionally made with garbanzo beans, lemon, tahini, garlic, salt and olive oil. Now hummus is now extremely popular all over the world, especially in the US. There are lots of variation that can be made with a standard hummus recipe. Mix in cilantro and jalapeno for a spicy kick, roasted red peppers for a bold flavor and color, add spicy chili sauce or olive salad. Hummus made a great snack because it is low fat and high in protein, iron and vitamin C.


Fun fact: In 2010 Lebanon created the largest bowl of hummus that weighed around 23,000 lbs! The recipe consisted of eight tons of cooked garbanzo beans, two tons of tahini and lemon juice and 150 lbs of olive oil!
