Best Smoked Aubergine Dip

Coriander Hummus

Fifty shades of hummus!! Why stick to the basic taste when you can indulge in different variations that are just as delicious and mouth-watering?

Growing up in Africa, I was only exposed to¬†the basic chickpeas and tahini hummus which was an essential of all Lebanese restaurants. Now, that I am back in Africa, I can confirm that the classic flavour is the only true flavour available. ¬†But, why stick to plain and simple when you can be a bit crazy with your hummus??¬†Don’t get me wrong, a good simple hummus can be all you need, but start playing around with it and add some herbs, some roasted peppers, dried tomatoes, olives, a bit of this and a bit of that and before you know you could¬†be eating a different hummus¬†every day of the week!
