Lime Cilantro Hummus

We at G@H invest too much time, effort and money into our home not to open it to others. We host. We’re hosts. And when friends stop by to wet their whistles, catch a football game, or engage in enlightened conversation, well, we have a moral obligation to feed them.

Here’s an easy recipe for Lime Cilantro Hummus that we adapted from Blendtec’s Fresh Blends cookbook:

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 cup of fresh cilantro leaves
  • A 15 ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Put ingredients into a blender. Blend for 45 seconds. Scrape down jar walls. Add 1/4 cup of water if needed for proper consistency. Blend again for 30 seconds. Serve with tortilla or pita chips.

Yeah, simple.
