The ingredients in hummus bi tahina are simple and invariable: chickpeas, tahini, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt. Nothing more, nothing less. And always, the best quality ingredients must be used.
And it must be eaten properly.
You should eat hummus with your hands. I don’t mean with your fingers, but eat it with your hands and Lebanese bread and lots of really good olive oil.
There’s an etiquette to this: hold the bread at the tips of your five fingers, dip in the bowl and move in a clockwise direction with a quick flick of the wrist. -Mo Moubayed
