Hummus – Chickpea Dip

Hummus and parsley salad

Middle Eastern cuisine continues! Today I am sharing a recipe for hummus – who hasn’t heard of it? Delicious chickpea paste you can buy it at any supermarket, it is available in various flavors. However, today I present to you a recipe for classic chickpea and sesame hummus. A very simple and quick recipe. You can modify it by adding different vegetables and spices.

It is possible that there will be different versions on the blog, but we start with this standard one. It is fantastic as a dip for chips, carrots or celery. A delicious and healthy snack, e.g. for playing board games (board gamers will definitely appreciate the lack of greasy finger marks). A brilliant addition to Moutabbal, Tabbouleh and Pita bread that together will create a nice set of starters. It’s another delicious vege snack on our blog. Try to evaluate it by adding e.g. coriander, parsley, peppers or tomatoes. Chickpeas contain a lot of protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and B, and many natural minerals. So it’s worth trying to prepare homemade hummus.


Delicious chickpea paste – a perfect snack, vegetable dip or bread spread. A simple and traditional recipe. HIT known all over the world. You will never buy ready-made hummus in the supermarket again. You can do it in 5 minutes!
