Mediterranean Diet Recipes: Lebanese Hummus

Lebanese Hummus

The variety of different types of hummus in the grocery store is growing rapidly. The thing is, homemade hummus is so inexpensive and easy to make that the store-bought hummus won’t taste the same after you try this version. Hummus is a traditional Mediterranean diet recipe and is made with extra virgin olive oil, not canola oil, while most store-bought hummus contains canola oil. Your homemade hummus will already taste better and be healthier with extra virgin olive oil.

This hummus has some garlic, but isn’t too garlicky. I also really love the tahini ratio in this recipe because I find that some hummus has too much tahini which makes for a strong after taste. The thing that makes hummus so easy to make is that you basically just add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blend it.

I like to use this hummus in a few different ways. I  love to dip pita bread in it for a quick snack. I will serve it as an appetizer at lunch or dinner, as it goes well with most other Mediterranean diet recipes. However, my favorite thing is to make a falafel pita wrap with tons of hummus spread inside. Here is one of my favorite falafel recipes.

If you’re bringing this hummus to a guests house, impress them by garnishing with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, a dusting of paprika, and a sprinkle of pine nuts. They will be impressed with the presentation as well as the amazing Mediterranean flavors of this traditional Lebanese hummus.
