Hummus with olive oil

Hummus – the traditional dip we all fell in love with

Hummus, a creamy chickpea dip, has a rich and ancient history throughout the Middle East, and rose to popularity in Europe and the US around the mid 1980s. In Britain (dubbed the hummus capital of Europe) 12,000 tonnes of the spread is consumed every year.

Hummus is usually made from blended chickpeas, tahini paste, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil. It is often eaten with flat bread, like pita, or with vegetable batons. In Lebanese cuisine, it is served with other small dishes like falafel, tabbouleh and Baba Ghanouj.

Health benefits

Chickpeas, the main ingredient in hummus, are packed with protein and fibre and are also high in iron, folate, phosphorus, and B vitamins. For vegetarians and vegans especially, the dip delivers many nutritional benefits.

Texture is key

Achieving a rich, ultra-smooth and creamy texture is key to the success of hummus. Many consumers prefer the texture of shop-bought hummus over homemade, as it is lengthy and difficult to obtain the same level of smoothness with a home food processor.
