Basic labenese humus

HUMUS !! It’s a new rage and modern day comfort food. The best part u can get your experimenting gears on and do as u like it !This is the first and simplest in the series, sure to hook you on to it as it serves as a dip, spread and I like to eat it as it is when craving for flavours. humus has found  popularity in recent times to an extent that I see it almost in all restaurants topping the menu served with pita.

Roll up a wrap with humus and salad , spread it over  a sandwich for a burst, use it as a party dip with lavash ( the Lebanese chips)
