Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus

After eating Panera’s veggie sandwich, I was inspired to try out a cilantro-jalapeno hummus recipe. I found a great recipe on Hungry Healthy Girl’s website. I picked up some cilantro, chickpeas, and tahini and started processing!


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1-2 jalapenos (I used half), minced
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 cup (I used 1.5 – 2 lemons) lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • I added 1 tbsp olive oil to the recipe to make it smoother


In a food processor, mince the jalapeno and garlic. Add the chickpeas and the rest of the ingredients, scraping down the sides of the bowl. This keeps for a week in the refrigerator!
