Cilantro Hummus

Here is a recipe for a wonderful hummus I threw together today.  It was a combination of several different recipes to make this one.

  1. 1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained; reserve juice
  2. 1 teaspoon cumin
  3. 1 clove garlic
  4. 6 tbs lemon juice
  5. 1/4 tsp salt
  6. 1 tbs olive oil
  7. 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  8. 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a food processor.  Add about 1/4 cup of the reserved juice from the can and mix.  You can adjust some of the ingredients to your taste such as the garlic, lemon, cilantro, and cumin.  I think I added maybe about a cup of cilantro and a bit more salt because I used reduced sodium chickpeas.  Other hummus recipes call for tahini but I did not have any and this turned out just as yummy without it!

Serve with vegetables, pita bread, or use on a sandwich.  Enjoy!
