11 Interesting Takes On Hummus

Today is International Hummus Day! To say that hummus has been my savior on many lazy nights would certainly not be an exaggeration. After all, hummus goes with just about everything. All you need to do is toss a couple of ingredients together and top with hummus for it to be considered a meal!
