I regularly think about the spelling. That so many countries claim it as their own doesn’t help matters.

I think ‘houmous’ may be a supermarket thing?

Too sweet, fool.

Had a right good laugh with a couple of my Middle-Eastern mates about how Westerners pronounce hummus and falafel.

Heavy emphasis on the first syllable’s right in both, i’m told.

You know what I like to put on humours? Olive oil, lemon and Pomegranate seeds

Constantly baffled by people buying those tubs of slop in the supermarket for £2 when you can make your own at home in 5 mins with about 60p worth of ingredients which will be edible and taste of something other than salt.

Alright Jamie Oliver

Homemade ones are never as nice, and the supermarket ones are £1.

If it’s made from tinned chickers then I would much rather have even the worst supermarket slop.

That is a lot of different varieties :open_mouth:
Some sound intriguing, but I think stuff on top/with hummus is generally better than the stuff itself being flavoured.

was a dark day indeed when sainsbos switched their moroccan topped houmous for moroccan flavored houmous. still check the aisle every week to see if they’ve switched back but alas
