Spread the word: a new Guinness record was set, and this time it’s Israeli. The smallest hummus plate ever is 39mm in diameter, with 14 grams of superb Israeli hummus. Bit that.
Asstonished from the recored-breaking 2 ton hummus plate from Lebanon, we decided it’s time The Hummus Blog will set a record of it’s own. Since we Israelis were always pioneers in miniaturization, we thought it’s makes sense to set the first Guinness record for the smallest hummus plate.
Ladies and jents, may I introduce our 39mm hummus plate, containing 14 grams of hummus. 300 Lebanese chefs were needed to break the record for the largest hummus plate. We only needed ONE!
We used 5 chickpeas, 1 teaspoon tahini, 1cc lemon juice, 9 drops olive oil and VERY little salt and garlic. Garnished traditionally with papparika, cumin and one chopped parsley leaf, our ultra-miniature hummus plate was ready to eat in less than 15 seconds.
The picture on the right shows our record-breaking hummus plate on a 1:1 scale (viewd in 1280×768 or 1024×768 resolution), alongside a 1/2 NIS coin. Bellow, you’ll see four close-up pictures.Now, spread the word!
