Hummus is a dish served in several Mediterranean cultures and countries. It is considered a salad and is served with Nan (a flat bread) to be spread.

I love it as a snack during the day and I just use a spoon to and skip the Nan.

There are so many way to enhance this simple recipe I could write and entire book just on Hummus.

Tip: Another recipe with the exact-same name "Hummus" ranks higher.
