I made pico de gallo earlier this week, and anyone has used cilantro knows that buying a bunch is almost always too much cilantro! What to do with it? Should it sit in my fridge as I promise myself day after day that I’ll do something with it? Should I throw it out right away to prophesize the inevitable? OR should I get an idea from my Google Buzz feed that Cilantro Jalapeño hummus might be delicious?!
-2 cans Chick Peas
-1/2 bunch Cilantro (the leftover)
-1 Jalapeño (incidentally, also leftover from my pico de gallo)
-4 tablespoons lime juice
-3 cloves fresh garlic (unless you’re a vampire), roasted (I microwaved mine)
-2 tablespoons tahini sauce, if you have it
-salt to taste
Throw everything in your blender and blend it until smooth-ish. If your blender was like mine and refused to blend it, add a little water until it starts blending smoothly.
The ingredients posed for a picture before mixing it up.
The blending process didn’t go as smoothly as I had hoped it would.
But I made it blend by mixing with my trusty mixer, the spoon.
Doesn’t that look scrumptious?
This is probably my favorite hummus ever. It tastes sort of like green chutney, which is basically all the same ingredients minus the chick peas.
