Hummus is so easy to make that you really shouldn't have to buy a plastic pot of it. The basic hummus has four ingredients: chickpeas, tahini (pounded sesame seeds), garlic and lemon juice. But this is just the starting point. You can add spices, herbs or even other vegetables such as peppers or beetroot. In Egypt, hummus is often flavoured with cumin.
