Hummous or Hummus

Whether you pronounce it whoommus or hummmmus the familiar taste and texture of this healthy and flexible dip usually gets an MMmmmmmm from the taster. This version of the familiar recipe has a touch of Tamari (or you can use a light soy) which adds an interesting flavour and enhances the lemon.

      Pita chips - that's a good idea teaches12345. Thanks for your comment.
