The origin of hummus recipe can be found in cookbooks dating back to the 13th century. While many claims the invention of the dish as their own, hummus has become indicative of middle eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. Today, hummus is made all over the world, as this Lebanese basic dish can complement any main course dish it is served with. Hummus is fairly easy to make and like most of the othe ... r chickpeas recipes, the hummus recipe also requires you to soak the chickpeas overnight. Once you have that, the preparation time to make hummus is nearly 30 minutes, including the time it’ll take to cook the chickpeas in the pressure cooker. While most of the hummus recipes in the middle east and the Mediterranean use olive oil and tahini, you can also use refined oil and white sesame seeds as an alternative. To further enhance the taste of this dish, you can also add some Greek yoghurt. Once prepared, anyone can enjoy hummus as a dipping sauce or a spread with absolutely any dish or snack. You can use hummus as a top-up for your pitas, sandwiches, fishes, veggies, and chips. And with its health benefits, you don’t have to ever worry about indulging yourself with an excess amount of hummus as it is high in protein, fibre, and carbohydrates. Adding hummus to your daily diet can improve your digestion, blood pressure, and immunity. As far as shelf life is concerned, you can store your hummus in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
