Happy Hummus Day!

May 13 is International Hummus Day, an unofficial holiday that gives us all a great excuse to eat the delicious chickpea spread (as if we needed one!).If you’re looking for a place to get your hummus fix, check out the latest innovation by the 21-year-old Hummus Day founder.Hummus Day is an invention of Israeli start-up entrepreneur Ben Lang, CEO of MapMe.com. To celebrate the day, the site has produced an international hummus map, showing exactly where fans can get their hummus fix in Israel, the US, Canada, the UK, and even India. “We opened up the map on Monday night, and in the space of less than 24 hours we got over 20,000 hits,” said Lang. “Hummus is clearly an international favorite.”That it was an Israeli entrepreneur – albeit an immigrant from the US – who came up with the map is a testimony to both the popularity of the dish in Israel and to the technological prowess of Israelis.If you prefer to make your own hummus, check out our recipes for traditional and grilled avocado hummus. Enjoy!
