Hummus makes a great snack or appetizer before a meal. The following recipe comes from my good friend, Julie Herbert. Yum!


  • 1 can  Garbanzo Beans
  • 1-2 cloves  fresh Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 C.  fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 C.  Olive Oil
  • 1/4 C.  Tahini
  • 1 T.  ground Cumin
  • 1/2 T.  ground Coriander
  • 1/8 t.  Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 t.  Sea Salt
  • 1/4 C. Cilantro, finely chopped


Warm the garbanzo beans with the liquid from the can. Blend all ingredients in a food processor, except for the chopped cilantro. When completely blended, transfer to a bowl and stir in the cilantro, reserving some of it to sprinkle on top

Serve as a dip with tortilla chips, pita bread, or raw vegetables
