Wikipedia: Hummus
Hummus (/ˈhʊ.məs/, /ˈxʊ.mʊs/, or /ˈhʌ.məs/; Arabic: حُمُّص‎‎, full Arabic name: hummus bi tahini Arabic: حمص بالطحينة‎‎) is a Levantine dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas or other beans, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. It is popular throughout the Middle East and in Middle Eastern cuisine around the globe. It can also be found in most grocery stores in North America and Europe.
