Hummus is a delicious Lebanese dip. It's usually eaten on pita bread any time of the day, with any meal. It's made with chick peas, garlic, lemon juice, and salt. It's also great on steak!
ex. Could you pass the hummus?

A dip/spread (commonly eaten on pita bread) made from mushed chickpeas, garlic, and lemon juice. Believed to have originated in the Middle East, it is popular in America with vegetarians and college students (no one else seems to know it exists.) It's quite good, and has a nice zing to it--delicious with lime tortilla chips.

Also spelled humus (one m), although this spelling can also refer to decaying plant or animal matter. When writing appetiser menus for formal banquets (especially those banquets including guests familar with horticulture), it is probably best to stick with H-U-M-M-U-S. (Though you must admit, H-U-M-U-S is bound to get a priceless reaction or two.)
First Horticulturist: Mmm, this spread is delicious. What is it?
Second Horticulturist: *check menu* ...Humus.

Passing College Student: *eats remaining hummus*

Hey Tara, lift up your shirt so I can scoop out some hummus from under your back-flap. This cracker's too dry on its own.
