Using a food processor is the number one way to get the smoothest hummus. If you are using canned chickpeas, when you drain the liquid, drain it into a bowl.

They didn't, although the ingredients were all known and eaten in ancient times. The earliest evidence for true hummus comes from 13th century Egypt, long after the ancient period had ended. The ancient Egyptians ate chickpeas in stews and other hot dishes, there is no evidence of any kind that they were mashed and eaten cold with tahini (which is the standard form of hummus).

Well, hummus is gluten free depending on how you make it. My dad takes chickpeas and boils them for two hours at a low temperature. He then lets them sit in the water for another two hours, therefore absorbing lots of water. Then, he blends the peas up with onion, garlic, and lemon juice in a food processor. However, some people will add flour to hummus to make it more substantial. I hope this answers your question.

Hummus finds popularity on many restaurant menus and grocery store aisles today. Making it at home is relatively easy, and the nutritional benefits of this well-regarded dip make it a real gem. Dietary fiber from the chickpeas, heart-healthy olive oil, antioxidant-rich lemon juice, and the essential B vitamins in tahini (ground sesame seeds), make the main ingredients in hummus excel. Combined with the carrots, celery, or whole wheat pita often served with it, hummus nutrition surpasses most other dip options. Hummus, a staple of the Middle Eastern diet, is a healthy and tasty option.

Nobody knows for sure. Most say The Middle Eastern region traded with many places and received spices and goods along the way. They used this to make a special food out of crushed chickpeas and olive oil, and lemons and garlic as well. Then the hummus idea spread across the world. Others say Greece invented hummus first and later it spread across up to the Middle East. But the most probable one is the Middle Eastern Invention of hummus, typically dipped in pita bread or falafel. Greeks however may have added on or changed the hummus.(Note: This answer is from a 12 year old kid)

Hummus is a source of protein and the good type of fat called monounsaturated fat (that's if it is made with olive oil and many hummus recipes use this oil). It also contains calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and a few other trace minerals. It also contains a little of the B vitamins including a decent amount of folic acid, which benefits the heart, and a little vitamin A.
