Hummus my love… it is with Sir, one of our many cold favorites, yes I say ” our ” because there is also the Moutabal which we are addicted, I confess !!! Tasted just like this with the lebanese bread, or served in a pita with fresh vegetables and keftas… I become the happiest of women (yes it takes me not much I know) ! Yes, because cooking middle eastern cuisine that speaks to me and that I like a lot, and what better than the hummus to be his ambassador. We know least, but the hummus is sometimes served with beef, back to the spices above, such as a full plate, enjoy, you will be seduced !

I don’t know what you think, but the hummus is also (and mostly) a spread perfect for the cocktail hour which will take only 5 minutes to prepared if you already have the chickpeas cooked in the hand. In short, to serve with everything and anything because it is really too good ! Good, and then it is not as if it called for six ingredients…ah bah if, in fact !
