Hummus: served with tahini sauce/tarator and sauteed mushrooms

Who invented the Hummus? Was it the Lebanese? the Jordanians? Maybe the Israeli Arabs? (((((((((((-: Frankly, I don’t care ! Whoever invented it was a genius !

In Israel there’s another version eaten with mushrooms (on top of the hummus with tahini sauce and lots of olive oil).


My hummus recipe can be found here but you can always play with the amounts (especially if you want it to be lighter in texture/less thick, you can add a bit more water):

For the tahini sauce, with or without herbs (called Tarator in Middle Eastern countries):

And as far as the mushrooms: You just need to saute finely sliced onions in olive oil till they are golden brown and then add fresh sliced mushrooms, a bit of garlic and let the mushroom release their liquids till they are brown and “roasted”.
