What Is Hummus?

Hummus is a dish originating from the Middle East and Mediterranean that is made with cooked chickpeas, tahini, a paste made of ground sesame seeds, lemon juice, garlic and salt. 

Having gained widespread popularity around the world, various regions have come to adding in their own staple ingredients and unique garnishes like chopped tomato, cucumber, olives and olive oil, parsley, paprika, pine nuts, caramelized onions, mushrooms, and even hard-boiled eggs.

Is Hummus Gluten Free?

You would be pleased to know that the answer is a big fat YES. Hummus is generally made from mashed chickpeas, tahini (sesame paste), olive oil,  lemon juice and mashed garlic.

All these are gluten free, but if you buy hummus from a shop it is always best to check the label to make sure.

Hummus Recipe Without Tahini?

Well, you can simply substitute the tahini for a small amount of nut butter, for example, almond butter, peanut butter etc. Please do check out this chocolate hummus made with peanut butter. So so good.

Want A Smoother Hummus?

Whilst I think this dip is as good as is, you can make it smoother by peeling the skin of the chickpeas first before blending.
