Mind you, I am not positive 100%, but those supermercados are quite well stocked with a wide variety of foods and such.thankyou! big chickpea enthusiast over here.
Using a fork will create our own Jerusalem style houmus a bit lumpy - I don't recall many blenders in the albergues so try this instead: pour a can of chickpeas with the juice - don't loose those vitamins and minerals - into a pot and heat them up, mash up in anyway you can about half of them into a gloopy soup/sauce add the remaining whole chickpeas add lots of tahini and you have 'masbaha' - a Palestinian/Lebanese/Syrian/Israeli dish served warm but not hot - a true comfort food!No worries - there may not be the processed stuff for sale, but hummus is so easy to make.
Take the juice of a lemon and mix it with tahini (an espresso-cup sized amount, about 1/4 c).
Salt, then a little garlic or cumin if you like them.
Smash a tin of garbanzoes up with all that...a drizzle of olive oil if you like.
A food processor is best but on the camino a fork will have to do.
It'll still taste great.
There are garbanzos for sale in tiendas all along the camino. And lemons. You may need to bring the tahini.
I love it too. But have never thought to buy it in Spain because of its shelf life, once opened and having to stay in my rucksack all day. Not sure if personally, I could consume a whole pot in a day or two? Hope you do well on your search. Buen Camino
Hummus not only goes off quickly, once opened it turns into glue - any amount of olive oil or water are of no avail. Eat it all or don't buy it. PS Supermarket humus world round is not hummus - the producers add preservatives and other crap to hold the emulsion fresh or don't. Maybe try a kebab place - they will sell it to go and it's probably the real stuff.I love it too.

Mine lasts about 3-4 days (OK in the fridge ). However I do believe that if I did somehow wade it - the survival rate would be less than 1 hour with everyone present in the dining roomHummus not only goes off quickly, once opened it turns into glue - any amount of olive oil or water are of no avail.

This is awesome, thanks Wendy! I am doing the Frances, yup. Checking out your blog now- I'm not vegan but like to eat a lotta veges so am a little apprehensive about the pilgrim dietOh, how I wish hummus were more readily available on the Camino! It's the perfect vegan picnic food. I did find it a few times along the way, but definitely not in every supermarket. Will you be doing the Camino Francés? If so, here are the places where I found hummus along the route in 2017 (as a food/travel blogger I keep detailed notes of what I eat):
Pamplona - Raíces restaurant and a shop called La Despensica
Logroño - Begin Vegan shop
Nájera - Eroski supermarket
Burgos - Viva la Pepa restaurant
San Nicolás Real Camino - the 2nd bar has it (look for the signs saying they have veggie food)
Hospital de Orbigo - Albergue Verde
Foncebadón - Albergue Monte Irago
Las Herrerías - Miriam's Hostel
A Balsa - El Beso hostel
Santiago - TS A Casa
I can also tell you where to find hummus on the Camino Primitivo in case you're interested
As others have said, canned chickpeas are widely available, so you could also make your own, but you would need to bring tahini or go without.

the bags cost 3 cents, 5 tops.Mind you, I am not positive 100%, but those supermercados are quite well stocked with a wide variety of foods and such.
Tip...bring your own bag/pack when you shop in the supermercados. You save a few euros on not having to pay for a bag and it is better for the environment.
Yes, they are inexpensive and would certainly not break me whilst on the Camino and force me to be eating gruel in a halfway house, but more than anything the damn things are an environmental disaster. Everywhere, just like their equally disastrous cousins the plastic water/soda/whatever bottle. I want to partake in their use to the utmost minimum as difficult as that is at times, and maybe by doing so I just fooling myself, but I do feel a wee bit better, anyway.the bags cost 3 cents, 5 tops.
