This Hummus happened when a dear friend paid us a surprise visit in Dubai and I had to quickly whip up a few starters for drinks before we headed out for dinner.

Fortunately I always have a box of boiled Chickpeas in the refrigerator and all it took was to add few ingredients to the blender to put this creamy herby delightful Hummus together.

I had some fresh Parsley, Cilantro and Basil from the Farmers market in the refrigerator, so I decided to add a handful of all to my Hummus. I also added a few pitted fresh Olives to add a touch of Umami to my Herb Hummus. A generous dash of good quality Oilve Oil, a heaping tablespoon of Tahina, few cloves of Garlic and juice of one big Lemon, make this Hummus a beautifully well balanced and addictive dip.

This recipe is so forgiving, you can literally add any fresh herbs you have at home and you will get a unique flavor each time you make this.
