HOMMOS or HUMMUS HAB

HOMMOS HAB

This dish is a favourite for Tahini lovers.

It is popular throughout the Middle East, Turkey, North Africa, Morocco, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Yemen, Greece, Palestine, and other countries in the area.

You will need the following:

Tahini, lemon, tomato, fresh parsley, paprika, 540 ml can of Mr. Goudas Chick Peas, Mr. Goudas Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Salt.

Dice half of a large tomato into tiny cubes.

Set aside.

Vigorously shake you container of Tahini and place 2 to 3 tablespoons into a glass bowl.

Add the juice of half of a lemon. In this instance we were fortunate to have obtained a seedless (which cost a bit more, oh well).

Notice the process of juice extraction.

Pierce the lemon with a fork and the juice flows out.

Read the book, The Lemon Tree, and discover how to choose the perfect lemon (and we are not referring to that old car that stalled on you on the way home after purchasing).

He created a masterpiece.

Not only did he create the best Hommos Hab,

he created the best recipe to represent his homeland of Syria to the rest of the the world.

 

Special thank you to Mr. Taysir Fahham from Syria for preparing and presenting me with this cultural favourite.

By the way, Mr. Taysir Fahham is a gynecologist who has practised his profession for over ten years in Europe.
