Happy International Hummus Day! This day, though celebrated by millions of people around the world, is particularly special to Lebanese people.
Hummus is mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. It is a popular and traditional dish in Lebanon and in the Middle East and it can be eaten in many ways and goes with almost anything.
You should feel no shame on May 13th when it comes to Hummus. You can eat Hummus all day long because this is what International Hummus Day is all about.
