I’ve always been a fan of making my own hummus, because it’s incredibly easy and fool-proof.
Also because you can make it any flavor you like. I like to add fresh greens to mine, especially cilantro aka coriander.
This hummus is creamy, with a medium spice level, though that is adjustable based on your preferences. Want it to have a stronger kick? Add 3 jalapeños, instead of 2.
2 jalapeños, seeds removed, diced
(this won't make it crazy hot. If you’re a lover of spice, add 3 jalapeños)
1 can 15 oz garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup cilantro
3.5 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
4 garlic cloves
6 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
water to thin~ approx. 2-3 tbsp
Blend all the ingredients together and top with extra virgin olive oil and roasted chickpeas!
Serve with cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper or pita chips!
