Hummus bil tahini

In 2008 I have been on Holiday in Jordan. A great country with warm people really wanting to help you, and not ripping of tourists. We visited many traditional sites and could enjoy delicious mezzes. On my way back I had a cookbook in my luggage with the best Jordan recipes.

One of them is hummus, which I still make a lot in summer and when I have guests.

It takes only half an hour to prepare. You can eat it with chips, tacos or flatbread.
