Eps 1: The history of hummus
The debate over the origin of hummus is old-probably as old as hummus itself.
According to several historical sources, the earliest mention of hummus dates back to Egypt in the 13th century.
Chickpeas were and are abundant in the Middle East and are still commonly eaten.

The fact is, however, that because humus has been around for so long, the exact origins of history have been lost. While you can find a wide range of variations, some of the following are included in the basic hummus recipe, along with the great variety of ingredients.
Several culinary sources say that humus is described in folklore and fairy tales as one of the oldest known ready meals. Others have said that it was first prepared by Saladin in the 12th century, but this claim is highly controversial.
Although the exact origin of humus is unclear, we know that chickpeas, the main ingredient, were cultivated in the ancient Mediterranean and the Middle East. It is known that it is made from chicken eggs and that it is cultivated throughout the Mediterranean.
Although chickpeas were among the earliest crops, they were eaten by people in the Middle East 2,000 years ago. Certain artifacts and ceramics have been described and beaded, and the purée goes back many years.
I thought it would be interesting to know a little more about the history of hummus, so I knew that it comes from the Mediterranean. Although not much is known about where it comes from, this delicious spread is very old and helps fans understand how we loved it for so many years.
The word hummus, which has different spellings, is an Arabic word meaning "chickpea." Hummus is a Levantine (Arabic) dip or spread made mainly from chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans), which are cooked, pureed and then mixed with a sesame paste. It is made primarily by pureing the chickpeas with tahini, but it is also coated with other ingredients such as olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.
This chickpea-based dish has a long and interesting history and offers a variety of health benefits, especially if you prepare it yourself.
The question of who invented hummus is up for debate, and various regions claim the dish for themselves. Some claim that the recipe was developed by the ancient Egyptians, while others claim that it originated in ancient Greece, Turkey, or Palestine. The earliest known hummus recipe comes from a cookbook written in the 13th century in Cairo, Egypt.
The invention of the creamy spread is often attributed to Sultan Saladin, who was the first to combine the basic humus ingredients. Given that the two main ingredients, chickpeas and tahini, are used, experts believe their origins go back far.
Many regions and countries around the world are the origin of humus, including the Middle East, North Africa, South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Humus is so popular that even countries such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Egypt and Tunisia have a rich humus history.
This delicious spread, also served as a dip, consists of pureed chickpeas mixed with olive oil, salt, garlic, cumin, paprika, coriander, chili powder and salt. The recipe may vary, but let's take the dip (or any other spicy substance) and see if we can digest it.
It is popular in the Middle East, including Turkey, and in North Africa (including Morocco), and is slowly making its way to North America. It is also found in South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia.
The full name of the prepared spread in Arabic is hummus tahina, which means "chickpeas" or "tahini." Hummus is an Arabic word that means chickpea, and it is a combination of "hummus" and "tahina," which means "cheese," and the first known recipe for it was published in a cookbook in Cairo in the 13th century by Al-Qassim, one of Egypt's most famous chefs.
The full name of the prepared spread in Arabic is hummus tahina, which means "chickpeas" or "tahini" and is derived from the Arabic word. I can think of no better method than to make a mixture of boiled and pureed chickpeas mixed with a little olive oil, salt and a pinch of salt and pepper. It is then served hot or cold, rolled up and left to sit overnight, presumably to give it a very different consistency to hummus or tahina.
There are many dishes that contain chickpeas that are not humus, and that is true, but actually not humus. If there is tahina (pronounced very similarly in Arabic and Hebrew), it is called hummus, and nobody there says anything about it. I have no idea whether it has the same meaning in Arabic as in English or even in Hebrew.
