For those of us committed to improving our diets in small, manageable ways, Eat Well Enjoy Life delivers innovation in hummus flavors made from a wide range of different beans, including Edamame, White Bean, Black Bean, Red Lentil and Yellow Lentil.
If it is made with something else, than it is not hummus.
It might be like hummus, but it's not actually hummus.
Be like saying a veg. protein hot dog is a hot dog.
Not really since it isn't made of meat, it just looks like a hot dog.
Or you could say my wife's twin sister looks like her, so it could be said she is my wife and therefore I can sleep with her. Now that would go over good huh? (OK my wife doesn't have a sister let alone a twin).
So on the possibility this might be good I was searching on "alternate" forms of "hummus".
Ran into this blog, it's worth a smile if nothing else.
I thought I was so breathtakingly brilliant in figuring out that if hummus were merely a puree of legumes, then peanut butter is really a peanut hummus because peanuts are legumes, and refried beans are a pinto bean hummus because beans are legumes, too! And though edamame, young soybeans, are not beans as many of us would mistakenly believe since it has the word “bean” in the name, but oilseeds, they are still legumes, which made them candidates for said “puree of legumes.” I was so smug in my clever sleuthing and deductive prowess. Smug smug smug.
*shakes head* How wrong I was. How wrong we all were. Utterly utterly wrong. It is all…a myth.
Well, good thing I am here to dispel that myth! “Hummus” does not, in fact, mean “puree of,” which is what we uneducated folk might havethought it was. The word “hummus” is Arabic for “chickpea” (or garbanzo bean or ceci bean or chana), so technically, hummus isalwaysmade from chickpeas. That certainly deserves to be repeated.
