Did you know that this Friday the 13th of May is International Hummus Day?
Enjoy hummus for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks.
There's not a better day to enjoy hummus!
First consumed in Egypt around the 13th Century, hummus is an ancient power food from the Middle East. The most basic hummus is made from chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and salt. A wonderful source of plant-based protein, fibre, healthy fats and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, hummus can give you a great health power boost!
Making hummus at home is so easy if you have a food processor or a blender.
There are great recipes here on Hummus Day's website, as well as our popular Everyday Hummus.
Spread them on sandwich and wraps instead of margarine or dip in carrot sticks for a crunchy snack.
There's even a Mushroom Hummus Soup recipe out there. Go creativity!
