Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip made from pureed (cooked) chickpeas. The classic version insist on the addition of a paste called Tahini, which is made from Sesame seeds. Other aromatics like garlic, cumin, lemon juice, Olive oil and paprika are also added.

This is eaten along with Pita bread or any other flatbread. This is extremely nutritious filled with protein, potassium and fiber. Many variations exist, where other ingredients are included instead or along with chickpeas. This can also be made without Tahini. For a variation check out this Beet Hummus.
