And because chickpeas have no fat and no cholesterol, you will be amazed to know that tahini (sesame paste) provides your body with essential fatty acids omega 3 and omega 6, plus other beneficial substances that cleans blood vessels and protects your heart for a long time.

Secrets to an exceptional hummus recipe

If you want to make an ordinary hummus, you must take into account several aspects. For example, the chickpeas beans must be large, nice and clean, and don’t forget about skimming and discarding the foam during boiling. In addition, during and even after boiling, the shells must be carefully removed.

Every day hummus

Now that we've talked about the benefits that this delicious dish has, we will not neglect the delicious combinations you should try. Good news for the vegans: hummus contains lots of proteins and can be a very consistent meal among exclusively vegetarian food. It's very good with plenty of olive oil and can be served simply with a pita bread. And if you want to try something new, we recommend Beiruty Humus, or more precisely hummus with red pepper, garlic and parsley, and hummus with Snubar which is in fact humus with pine nuts.

We didn’t forget those who prefer to add meat in their menu. Humus goes well with grilled beef or beef ras-asfur. Or if you want to simplify the process, you can choose hummus with beef or hummus with meat and Snubar. And for a genuine Lebanese experience do not hesitate to order hummus with Sujuk or otherwise Lebanese hummus with pieces of spicy sausage. In addition, it is no secret that we like to innovate so in our restaurant you can eat shrimp with humus.
