Cilantro Hummus

After purchasing the biggest bunch of cilantro ever for $1.50 at Green Market, I was forced to find a creative way to use a lot of it at once before it went bad. This simple recipe for Lime Cilantro Hummus was perfect.

I don't have a food processor, but my hand held blender wand worked fine to process the ingredients. My only other substitution was lime juice from a squeeze bottle instead of lime zest and fresh squeezed juice.

The resulting flavor was amazing (I LOVE cilantro) and the whole process took maybe 20 minutes. I will definitely revisit this and make my own hummus moving forward. To make the lime flavor more pronounced, I might even follow the directions next time.


  1. Mmmm... sounds delicious. I've been meaning to try making my own hummus. Maybe when we get back from Phoenix.

  2. Wow that does SOUND really good, but I may have to get used to the site. Kind of looks like something Nickelodeon would make...but I'm sure it's super delish!
