Hummus is probably the most likely staple food for vegans. It taste just so good. I love to mix up the recipes for hummus to refine it. My lasted love is hummus with Za’atar.

Za’atar is a spice mix from North-Africa, the Middle East and Turkey and it is often used in the North-African and Arabian cuisine. They combine Za’atar and olive oil  and spread it on flat breads before baking. Here is a “recipe” for Za’atar.

I prepared this hummus in the classic way from chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, cumin and salt. To make it less fat I mixed it with aquafaba (the liquid from the chickpeas) and just added a little bit of olive oil on top. This way it gets also super creamy.

I wish you fun with this recipe and I hope you enjoy it!
