‘Hummus’ Be Joking! 10 Recipes You Must Try for International Hummus Day

Extremely cheap and easy to make, hummus, a Middle Eastern spread made from chickpeas, is one of the most popular vegan foods on the planet.

Not only is hummus healthy, creamy, and the ultimate comfort food, it’s also quite versatile. From a cheesy hummus to a red-lentil hummus, we’ve listed the top, most interesting hummus recipes around so that you can celebrate this scrumptious dip on International Hummus Day—May 13—for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
