I really don't care, or for that matter don't even want to know.

All I know is that I love the stuff.

Used to prefer taramasalata - but it's too salty for me nowadays (since I stopped using salt).

However comma.....

.....after creating a veggie curry of squash,cauliflower and chickpeas whch was very tasty, I found I had a fair few chickpeas left over. Hummus here I come! Before next meal thought I'd have a little starter of said hummus and flatbread. Very tasty it was too.
In the middle of the night the rumbling became quite intense and the resultant explosions, whilst not reaching the "Nurse, nurse, the screens!!" level did cause strangled gasps from the other side of the bed and demands to take myself somewhere else.

Calm was restored in the morning. Phew!

Hummus, tarama, tsatsiki, pickled octopus, stuffed olives, home-made bread, some good cheese and wine. Heaven.

Falafel is pretty decent schtick too, with a dollop of yoghurt, salad & a toasted pitta.

All hail the humble chickpea!

Agree, not for everyone. Histamines are abundant - wine etc... - affects each differently.

Best.

Love it all, but Mrs Hobo won't let me eat it due to the 'explosive' effect it all has on my digestive system.

Any one else have this problem?

If the hummous gives you gas, try moutabal. It's smoked aubergine paste made the same way as hummous. Just do your peeled aubergine slices on the barbie (salt them first then wash off the resultant juice to remove bitterness) with a little olive oil. Chuck in the blender with olive oil, garlic, a little lemon juice and salt. Labne (yoghurt, lemon and garlic) and a taboule, some pita bread and you can't go wrong.

Hummus gives me continual (often wet) farts.

Is that a good thing?

I get this sense its cleaning out my intestines and bum...

Middle Eastern peanut butter. You're lucky it doesn't bind you like a gallon of cement.

I've tried Tahini on it's own. That's like chewing newspaper.

Agree Bruce, but it does help if you really, really, really like Feta & Olives.

feta, cucumber tomato, a little olive oil, some vinegar a sprinkle of oregano...

some home made hommus, maybe a little tzatziki and some warm pita...

some good debate and a game of backgammon or three.

nothing better.

well maybe a nice baklava and greek coffee to finish off.

All good, except the Moutabal.

If it's made well (which is not very often) it's okay-ish, but if not it makes me gag!
