24 Hummus Recipes to Celebrate National Hummus Day

It’s National Hummus Day, a holiday we can truly get behind. We know these silly food holidays are just that – kind of silly. But we love taking the opportunity to celebrate our favorite foods, and hummus is definitely top of the list.

Hummus seems to have become a universal food. What was once a purely Middle Eastern food now appears in every grocery store and bodega. Kids love it, it’s considered pretty healthy depending on the ingredients and methods and you can make it nearly a million ways. Or in this case, twenty four different ways.
