I don't normally blog, as a matter of fact, I've never blogged, but after seeing yet another abomination of hommos, I felt the need to do something, so here I am.
Hommos, hummus or any other spelling is the Arabic word for chick peas or garbanzo beans. Homos bi tahini is the full name of the dip, which denotes that it is hommos (garbanzos) with tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt. That is the original and real (asli) hommos. There is no olive oil in the dip, it is added later according to taste as is a garnish of parsley or a dash of cayenne or paprika.
Hommos bi tahini is not made with black beans, soy, artichokes, blackberries, asparagus, herbs, black carrot juice, canola oil, safflower oil, or any other ingredient than what I listed.
You can make anything you want, however don't call it hommos.
