Humus = "mature compost, or natural compost extracted from a forest or other spontaneous source for use to amend soil." That is, what's left after your table scraps have decomposed in the compost pile.
Hummus is different: "a Levantine Arab food dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic."
We make our own hummus and enjoy it. It's fairly simple to make.
After everything is cool, get the blender out.
1 lime or 1 lemon.
2 tsp Cumin
2 tsp black peppercorns
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp chopped garlic
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp paprika
Liquify the lime/lemon add the rest of these ingredients. Dribble in a bit of water if needed.
Add the chickpeas with the liquid they were cooked in. Supplement enough water to get the bottom half of the mixture liquifying.
After a bit, pour the whole lot out into a large mixing bowl, stir, and return to blender in small enough lots (a little over a cup) to allow the blender to liquify the chickpeas thoroughly.
Do all the lots, stir them together in the mixing bowl and add:
1 cup Tahini
3 Tbsp Sesame oil
Mix the Tahini and sesame oil together with the chickpea liquid. The mix will stiffen a bit with the addition of the Tahini. Whipping it with a mixer will make it stiffen a bit more.
