Houmous Recipes And Serving Suggestions


Houmous, also called hummus, is a delicious and popular Middle-Eastern dip which is made out of pureed chickpeas. It can be enjoyed as a healthy snack or as part of a main meal. This article takes a look at houmous and how it is made, plus it also provides some tasty recipe ideas.


Basic Recipe


Houmous is very easy to make at home. All you will need is several cans of chickpeas that have been precooked, which you can purchase from most supermarkets and grocery stores. You will also need some olive oil (extra virgin will work best), some tahini - which is paste made from blended sesame seeds, some salt and a lemon.


The best way to make hummus is to add small amounts of each ingredient and blend, and then adapt the recipe to your tastes.


Start by adding the chickpeas into your home blender, then add a dash of oil, a pinch of salt, a few teaspoons of tahini and a squeeze of the lemon juice. Blend until you reach the desired consistency. You can either choose to have your houmous slightly chunky with bits in, or you can blend it until it is completely smooth.


Optional Extras


The great thing about houmous is that you can add different herbs and seasonings in order to jazz it up a bit. This can include things like garlic, coriander, parsley, chili oil, paprika, onions, peppers and so much more. Play around with different ingredients to see what you can come up with.


Serving Suggestions


If you are serving the houmous as a dip than you can include a number of chopped up vegetables for dipping as a healthy and nutritious snack. Thinly slice carrots, peppers, beans and cucumbers to dip into the houmous.


You can also add a dollop of houmous onto a range of dishes, including couscous and salads. It is also enjoyed as part of a lebanese meal which can include things like aubergine dips, fattoush, tabouleh, labneh and some pita breads.


If making your own houmous sounds like too much hard work then there are a huge range of delicious premade houmous dips available to purchase from most supermarkets and many specialist online retailers. Enjoy!
