Are you hosting an upcoming party? Perhaps you are planning a Mediterranean meal this week or you just want a healthy snack. If either of these situations apply to you, you may want to consider various hummus dip recipes.
But what are hummus dips exactly? They are comprised of a mix of tahini (made from sesame seeds) chickpeas that have been pureed, salt, garlic, and lemon juice. The hummus may include other ingredients as well depending on the variety. Roasted garlic hummus dip and roasted red pepper hummus dip are examples of variations on the classic recipe.
As far as Guinness World Records go, the biggest hummus dish was made from two tons of tahini, eight tons of chickpeas that had been boiled, 154 pounds of olive oil, and two tons of lemon juice. Overall, it weighed as much as four regularly-sized automobiles.
Hummus recipes are indeed popular all over the world. In fact, in the year 2008, the Association of Lebanese Industrialists pushed to have hummus recognized as a distinctly Lebanese food by the Lebanese Ministry of Economy and Trade.
In America, a span of 21 months saw the amount of hummus purchased rise by 35%, with $300 million in sales accrued, according to a 2010 market study. If you have more questions, comments, or recommendations regarding hummus dip recipes, you may share them in the forum below.
