Hummus is a creamy puree of chickpeas and tahini seasoned with lemon juice and garlic. It is popular in the Middle East and Greece.

This recipe was absolutely delicious. I've tried many different variations of hummus but this one is my favorite. The only thing I changed was to use the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes jar instead of regular olive oil. It really gives it the kick of sun-dried tomato flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe! - 20 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Awesome! I halfed the recipe (used 1 clove of garlic) and omitted the tahini - AMAZING! This is the best hummus I've ever had. - 06 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
