Humus, A Chickpea by any other name.....

"A traditional Middle Eastern meal is spread before the family and guests. Among the delicacies on the table is a dip or spread called "Hummus." Hummus is the Arabic word for "chickpea" which is widely known today at the Garbanzo Bean. Garbanzo is the Spanish translation of the word meaning "chickpea." Hummus is one of the oldest foods known, dating back to Egypt over 7,000 years ago. It is a popular food in Greek and Syrian cultures as well. If you like Middle Eastern food you'll know that Hummus comes in many different forms and has many different flavors." - Dawn Lewis, The History of Humus appetizer Lately, while dining out, I have found the appetizers exceeding the entrees in quality and interest. This colorful and simple plate of multi- flavored humus was a fun starter. From "Sunsets" in Wayzata.
