Garlic Cilantro Hummus

Well it’s been a while since I did a good recipe post.  I thought I had a healthier, vegan zucchini bread recipe, but it turned out to be an epic fail.  Like bread still in tin, in trash fail.  I don’t even want to deal with it.  Oh well.  It happens.  Sometimes in my quest to make things healthier and/or vegan,  things just don’t work out.  But I’m not giving up!! I’ll get that recipe 🙂

After that mess, I didn’t feel much like cooking.  I had some fresh picked cilantro I needed to use, so I decided on an easy hummus with some fresh chopped veggies.  Easy snack, or in my case, dinner.

Just a few ingredients!

Garlic Cilantro Hummus:

All you need is:

  • 1 can organic Garbanzo beans, half drained
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Tahini
  • Juice from 1 large lemon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped, fresh cilantro
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

Tossed all together in a food processor

Just toss the garlic and cilantro in a food processor and pulse for a few seconds.  Toss in the rest of the ingredients, and pulse again, but not the olive oil.  Feed the oil through the top feeder.  Start with 1 TBSP and add more as needed.

Serve with fresh veggies, pita chips, or as a spread for a wrap or sandwich; whatever you like…Enjoy!
