Hello Friends,
         Hummus is a creamy, thick spread made from cooked and mashed chickpeas and blended with tahini sauce, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, chilies and garlic. Homemade hummus is better than store-bought, and it's effortless and is a 10 minutes recipe to make at home. If you want to make hummus without tahini, just avoid it or add more olive oil or add 2 tbsp of dry roasted peanuts and blend all together.
              Hummus is an excellent protein source for vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores too. It is heart friendly; it helps balance cholesterol levels, reduce hypertension and protect against heart diseases. So with just a few simple tips and tricks, try to make creamy smooth hummus at home.

**If you don’t have any tahini, a paste made from sesame seeds, you can try making it yourself (You Can Find Tahini Recipe Here).

  2. Peel off the skin from the chickpeas to get creamy and smooth Hummus ( peeling off skin is optional).
