International Hummus Day

International Hummus Day

Hummus is an Eastern Mediterranean, Egyptian and Middle Eastern food. You can find it as a dip, spread, or in the form of a dip. It is made with cooked, mashed chickpeas and other beans and then blended together with tahini and olive oil, salt, lemon juice and garlic.

This delicious dip is very popular today in the Middle East (including Turkey), North Africa, and all over Middle Eastern cuisine.

Hummus is a nutritious part of a Mediterranean diet. It provides nutrients and delicious flavor. International Hummus Day is a great day to learn about this tasty treat, and of course enjoy some hummus!

Hummus is often described as an ancient cuisine by many sources. They also sometimes link it to a historical figure such as Saladin who was a well-known Muslim leader during the 12th century. Many women at the time would disagree with the idea that a man invented this dish, when it was almost exclusively women who cooked.

Others historians disagree with this assertion. Chickpeas were a common food in the region. They were also eaten in hot dishes such as stews. However, chickpeas puréed with tahini and eaten cold in Egypt and Levant do not appear to have existed before the Abbasid period.

No matter where it originated, the ingredients that make hummus are the same: garlic, ginger, sesame and lemon. Hummus has been enjoyed in this region for thousands of year! Hummus is not a new dish from this region.
