A Delicious Appetizer: Notch Paste (Hummus)

Hummus, which has become very popular in all world cuisines in recent years, is actually an appetizer made since ancient times and originally from the Middle East. It is even claimed that it has been done since the 13th century. Hummus, which is made with changes in its recipe from country to country, can be served with pita bread, bread, sandwiches as well as served with fresh vegetables at the drink tables.

We are used to seeing tahini in desserts and donuts, but it is a great idea to pour it on this appetizer. Tahini will facilitate the digestion of hummus.
