Hummus

Hummus is a dip, spread or a savory dish made with cooked chickpeas. Chickpeas are cooked, mashed and added to Tahini, lime juice and garlic. Hummus is a popular dish in Middle East and Mediterranean countries. It is also found in many grocery stores around the globe. Hummus is typically served with pita chips as a dip and also served as accomplishment with Falafel, grilled chicken and fish. It also tastes great with tortilla chips, crackers,  carrots, cucumbers and celery. I will not be adding Tahini today as I will be serving it to a friend who is allergic to sesame seeds. 

I am using store bought canned chickpeas here, you can soak the chickpeas boil them and use it  as well. This recipes goes to day 3 week 3 of Blogging Marathon 109 under the theme " Dips and Spreads".
