A couple of days ago, I tried to make falafel at home. After cooking the chickpeas, I decided to bake the falafel, instead of fry them. I halved the recipe, in case the baked falafel was dry and not so good. I used the leftover chickpeas to prepare hummus.
Hummus, which means chickpeas in Arabic, is a very popular spread throughout the Middle East. The full arabic name of the food is Hummus bi Tahini, means chickpeas with tahini.
Makes 6-8 servings. After cooking the chickpeas, it only takes about 5 minutes to prepare the hummus.
