Hummus Bi-Zeit Az-Zeitoun

December 22nd, 2017

Hummus is a Middle Eastern food that has become popular in other areas of the world. Hummus is made of chickpeas as the primary ingredient — after all, the word “hummus” means chickpeas in Arabic.

In Syria, Hummus has different varieties:

Hummus Bi-Zeit Az-Zeitoun: a specialty of Hama, chickpeas blended with olive oil only. Mostly eaten as breakfast.

Hummus Bet-Tehineh: chickpeas blended with tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt.

Hummus Bet-Tehineh W Lahmeh: same above but topped with meat and pine nuts.
