Hanes Hummus

We’ve all come to love hummus over the last decade and it’s become a staple in many people’s fridges.  But if you want to elevate your hummus experience, you need to go to talk to Yohannes. Entrepreneur Yohannes Petros along with his parents and family immigrated from East Africa in 1980 and settled in the prairies.  He now calls Toronto home.

Being surrounded by family and friends in the kitchen, the idea of community and food blended to ensure all were welcome with a plate of authentic African meals. As a young man, Yohannes played with hummus recipes and developed it into an amazing product that friends would request over and over. He kept to his belief that small batches, fresh ingredients, handmade, no fillers or cheap shortcuts would produce the best possible hummus in Canada.  It does not disappoint!

We tried the Roasted Garlic & Dill Hummus which provided a quick appetizer bite – Cucumber Bites – in our Recipe section – easy and lots of compliments!  Play with the recipe by changing up the hummus, cheeses and toppings.  With three varieties of hummus: Moroccan 7 Spice, Hot Date, and Roasted Garlic & Dill, you’ll get a ton of different flavours from Hanes Humus.

I was curious about the origin of hummus and found this: Based on historical information, hummus likely originated from ancient Egypt. According to several historical sources, the earliest mention of hummus dates back to Egypt in the 13th century. Chickpeas were and are abundant in the Middle East and are still commonly eaten. In fact, the word hummus means chickpea in Arabic. Historical documents show a dish, very similar to the hummus we eat today, being consumed in Cairo in the 13th century. But that doesn’t stop other areas from continuing to claim hummus as their own.”  https://www.thespruceeats.com/ And now you know!
