Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus (Chummus)


  • 3 cups dry garbanzo beans, soaked overnight
  • 1 pinch baking soda (optional)
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup tahini paste
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, or more to taste
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced, or more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling


Authentic Chummus Is Very Different And SO Much Tastier Than It's American Counterpart. This Chummus Is Creamy And Delicate In Taste Rather Than Overpowered With Garlic Or Thick And Pasty. It Is Eaten Warm, Fresh, And As A Whole Meal Spread Out In A Dish
