I go through phases with houmous, sometimes I like it and buy it on a regular basis and other times I think, nah, no thanks.
I am also pretty conservative when it comes to houmus, I much prefer the plain version and ignore the versions with olives, tomatoes or other added flavourings.
I have made it in the past, using chickpeas, olive oil and unfortunately way too much garlic… as a result I now rely on the version you can buy in the shops.
As for eating it when going out, usually I ignore it.
So are you eating houmus?
