Do you eat humus? Humus is a spread or dip made from chickpeas and tahini, with the addition of various spices and aromatic oils which enrich its specific taste. On the market, hummus can be easily found in several standard flavors, such as garlic, lemon, olive oil, curry, sunflower… although with a little imagination, hummus can have any flavor you chose!
