The word hummus literally translates from the Arabic word chickpea. 

Its origins are suspected to be from the Shami region (Lebanon/Palestine/Syria/Jordan).

A few years ago a group of Lebanese chefs created the largest hummus

 plate in the world weighing more than 2 tons.

Humus is the most famous mezze in Lebanon. An express and economical

 recipe that will bring an oriental touch to a dinner with friends.

                                                        ⚜️  If you use dry chickpeas :

✔️Soak the chickpeas in a large container filled with water (the water must

 be above the level of the chickpeas).

✔️The next day the chickpeas will swell. Pour them into a pot or a deep pan

 and add water and place them on the fire.

✔️When the water starts to boil and a foam will form on the surface, skim 

it off. Reduce the heat and simmer with the lid on but leave a small 

opening. Let cook 1h30 (add water if necessary).

✔️At the end of the cooking time you should be able to crush the chickpeas

 easily. Keep a small amount of cooking water for the next steps below.

                                                     ⚜️  If canned chickpeas are used:

✔️Drain the chickpeas (keep a small amount of chickpea water) and remove

 the skin, it's a bit long, Mr. can help you 

✔️Place the chickpeas in a blender, add the degermed garlic cloves and

 the lemon juice and tahini. Press the button and blend while adding the

 olive oil in a stream until you obtain a homogeneous and velvety paste.

 Season with salt and pepper.

✔️If you find that the hummus is thick, extend it with the reserved chickpea water.

✔️Serve in small soup plates sprinkled with cumin, paprika, chopped parsley

 and drizzle with olive oil.

✔️Serve with pita bread!!!!
