Party Dips: Hummus:Recipe


Is there a guest anywhere in the world who can resist a bowl of creamy dip and a plateful of crisp crudités? I haven’t discovered one. In the following section i will give you the recipes of dips which you can serve with you meals.

Hummus is a Arabic name and it is made from mashed chickpeas.The chickpeas make it a good source of protein and dietary fiber.



  • 3 cans drained chick peas.
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp tahini (sesame seeds paste)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste.


  • In a food processor, place chick peas, lemon juice, olive oil garlic, tahini. Process until all things are well combined.
  • Add enough water to make a smooth dip.
  • Season it with cumin, salt and pepper.
  • Transfer it in serving bowl and drizzle it with little olive oil.

    your website has a great look. it’s very sophisticated looking. in hummus recipe you haven’t given the amount of chickpea’s in cups since in pakistan we get them in plastic bags. plus there is no method of making tahini sauce.
