Hummus is one of my favourite dishes from the Middle East cuisine for my re-feed day. I like to have it with sliced vegetables or on top of chicken or yuca arepa.

 

Hummus is an Arabic word that simply means “chickpeas.” Chickpeas have been grown inthe Middle East and India for thousands of years.
