International Hummus Day- May 13

Hummus is an ancient Middle Eastern dish that in recent years has become well known in Western countries.
Hummus is a dip that can be eaten with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic.  
There are many ancient sources that link hummus to ancient periods and famous historical figures such as Saladin. Indeed, its ingredients: chickpeas, sesame, lemon and garlic were eaten in the area for a thousand years.  
The hummus can be eaten as a hot granule, or a cold granulated salad, but it is most popular to eat it as a cold spread, served on a plate or in a pita, with all kinds of additives such as beans, egg, tahini, chips, salad, and more...
