Been a bit obsessed with adding fresh cilantro to things lately and so a couple of weeks ago I tried it in my basic hummus recipe and it was great. Later it struck me that it would be EVEN BETTER with lime juice instead of lemon… and it was! I doubled-up on the amount of garbanzos for this recipe simply because it worked best with the amount of cilantro I had – the stuff I buy comes in 20 gram packets at El Corte Inglés. I also wasn’t sure whether to include the stems or just use the cilantro leaves – in the end I opted for the latter. It’s super delicious and so versatile.

I love hummus and I especially love this very simple recipe sent to me by a friend in Toronto many years ago.  I also love how versatile hummus is, as well as it being low-fat and very nutritious. I usually use hummus in a variety of tortilla rollups that are mostly vegetarian, and lately I’ve added oven-baked pita bread and flour torilla “chips” to my repertoire, with hummus as a dip. Any other suggestions will be gratefully accepted.
