Garlic Cilantro Hummus

Slowly but surely I am getting back into my blog! Lots of things going on to blog about, but, first up is a super delicious hummus recipe that we have been munching on lately!

I love to cook, and I love being in the kitchen creating new things, so when I discovered how simple hummus was to make, I couldn't wait to attempt my own! I searched Pinterest for a few different recipes that sounded good, then asked the Mr. which one sounded the best, and we ended up choosing the Cilantro Garlic Hummus recipe, and I think I can speak for both of us when I say, I am SO glad we did! It is amazing, and so simple to make!


  • 2 cans Garbonzo Beans/Chickpeas (Drained)
  • 1/2 Cup Tahini
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • Juice of 2 Lemons
  • 1/2 Bunch Cilantro
  • 1/2 of a Cucumber (Peeled and Sliced)
  • Pickle Juice
  • Fresh Garlic (I used probably 2-3 heaping tablespoons .. We love garlic, ya'll!)
  • 1/2 Tbsp Garlic Salt (Optional)
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • Pepper 
*Notes --- We used probably 2-3 tablespoons of pickle juice, and a few shakes of pepper to begin with, but added more after mixing everything. The best way is to just follow the standard ingredients list, and once blended, add more seasoning as you prefer.

To Make:

This is the best part ... Put all your ingredients into a blender and  blend until smooth. It is seriously THAT simple! Once it is blended, let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, but we found the next day it was SO much more flavorful after everything had a chance to meld together -- So yum!
