Hummus is a great source of protein and good fat, and the benefits of cilantro include aiding in digestion, preventing UTIs, and, perhaps most compelling, the ability to purify water.* The point is, it’s an incredible herb, and this recipe is like butta.
15 oz chickpeas, drained and rinsed
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 t sea salt
3 T tahini
1/4 c liquid reserved from chickpeas or olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c cilantro, roughly chopped
1/4 c water
- Combine all ingredients into the small bowl of a food processor, pulsing until smooth.
- Taste and add more lemon juice or sea salt, if you like.
Enjoy straight away or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to three days.
Serves many snackers.
