Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare Cilantro Hummus: With the motor running, drop 1 clove peeled garlic through the feed tube of a food processor fitted with a steel blade attachment; process until finely minced. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Rinse and drain one 15-ounce can no-salt-added garbanzo beans (chickpeas). Add garbanzo beans, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame seed paste), 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon white pepper. Process until completely smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. Add 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves. Pulse several times or until cilantro is evenly distributed and chopped. Chill until ready to use (see Tip).
