Cilantro Hummus

This delightful hummus is ready in less than 10 minutes and tastes wonderful as an appetizer dip, sandwich spread, or side dish.

Hummus is a super quick and easy appetizer to make and tastes ever so good.

Honestly, the hardest part about homemade hummus isn’t making it, it’s finding the tahini in the grocery store.

Here I thought I knew where just about everything was in a grocery store until I had to search for tahini.

And you’ll never guess where I found it, over by the peanut butter.

I ended up buying it in a Farmers-type market so I’m not sure where it might be located in a regular market but now I know where to start looking.

I happen to love hummus so much that when I go to a Greek restaurant I order hummus as one or both of my side dishes.

It’s fun to check out how different restaurants make it too.

Each restaurant’s hummus seems to be slightly different whether it’s in the taste or texture.

This hummus makes a wonderful appetizer to serve with pita chips, pretzel chips or vegetable relish trays.

Blend on the dip or sauce setting until smooth and creamy.

Depending on how juicy the lemon is, more water may be needed.

If so, add the water just a bit at a time so the hummus doesn’t become too thin.

Give it a taste test and add more salt if needed.

Don’t be shy with the salt.

The salt really makes the delicious hummus taste pop so make sure to add enough.

Just the right amount of salt makes the hummus taste so good.

Garnish with drizzles of olive oil, a sprinkle of paprika and cilantro.
