The origins of hummus
Although hummus has become a household food staple & universally loved food item, this Middle Eastern spread has a serious history. While the base of this tangy, nutrient-packed dish uses simple & accessible ingredients — chickpeas, sesame paste, lemon juice and garlic — hummus offers nuances depending where you are & who is making it.
Egyptian Arabs, Palestinians, Lebanese, Israelis, Greeks & other Middle Eastern and Mediterranean countries all claim hummus as their own dish. As to where it originally comes from, the earliest mention of the spread dates back to Egypt during the 13th century. Since then, hummus was made all over the Middle East for hundreds of years, before being imported west from the chickpea-growing Arab countries to Greece through centuries of trade. Some great books about the origin of hummus & its complex political implications include: On the Hummus Route: A utopian journey between cities, people, and dreams by Jim Barnes and Hummus: A Global History by Harriet Nussbaum (release 2021).
