>Hummus should be nice and period and requires no cooking.

Assuming you mean hummus bi tahini, I don't  know of any period 
recipes for it. There's an Islamic recipe in the expanded version of 
al-Baghdadi that has hummus and tahini in it, but if you try to make 
it it's pretty clear that it isn't the familiar dip. And there's a 
white salsa that I'm told tastes rather like hummus bi tahini, but I 
haven't actually tried it.
