Jalapeño Cilantro Hummus!
I’ve been on a huge hummus kick. My go-to lunch of late has been a tortilla slathered with hummus and topped with roasted red peppers (from the jar) and lot of greens. I realized recently that the tub of “Garlic Lovers” hummus I had been buying isn’t organic and I decided to try a new brand. I found this at Whole Foods:
I’d been specifically looking for a jalapeño/cilantro flavor so I decided to give this a try. Turns out this was way too spicy for me. Between that and the fact that these eight ounces cost over six dollars (!) I decided it was finally time to make my own hummus. I picked a recipe from the Hungry Healthy Girl blog. This isn’t a vegan blog but there is a nice collection of vegan recipes. You can link to this hummus recipe here.
To make the hummus you just process the ingredients for a minute or two and it’s done. Doesn’t get much easier than that! For this recipe I took out all the seeds and ribs in the jalapeños. The hummus is slightly spicy but the heat doesn’t overpower the cilantro, lemon and garlic. It’s a good balance for me, but you can also easily play around with the ingredients to suit your taste.
I’m hooked. I’m done. Homemade hummus all the way…
