Celebrate Your Love For Hummus!

Hummus is a dip or a spread that comes from Eastern Mediterranean and Egyptian countries but it has gained fame all around the globe. Hummus is an Arabic word that literally translates to chickpeas in English. And, the star ingredients of this dip are chickpeas and tahini (a paste prepared with sesame seeds). People all around the world come together every year on May 13th to celebrate all the love they have for this dish. You will be surprised to know that the love affair with hummus is so serious for some people that there are movies made about it, songs written for it and it has literally led to wars. But what is the one thing that makes this dip so much special? Hummus is one of those dishes that you can add to your diet guilt-free and is also supremely delicious at the same time. It is high on nutrients and so versatile that you can literally spread it, use it as a dip, put it in your salads and so much more.
