Cilantro-Lime Hummus

Ever since I bought a food processor, I have wanted, well needed to make some kind of hummus. I stumbled upon this recipe in an App on my iPad (sorry Darla, I'll share it with you). It looked so creamy and delicious, I just had to try it. The cilantro-lime combo also makes a very refreshing summer dish!


2 15 oz. cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
Juice and zest of 1 lime
2 cups fresh cilantro
1 tbsp tahini
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup water


In food processor, add all ingredients except for the water.

Pulse for a few minutes, and periodically scrape sides of mixture.

Slowly add 1/2 cup water to mixture.

Pulse until mixture is smooth.

If mixture is too chunky, add a little more water or olive oil to reach the desired consistency.

I made some naan (recipe I will post later) to go with, or you can just enjoy with some chips.

Either way, enjoy!
