40 in 2013 #3 Cilantro & Ginger Hummus

A friend of mine in a-long-term-committed-relationship proposed marriage to me after trying this hummus. I’m just sayin’ it’s THAT good. (Although, warning… it may cause an episode of dragon breath-it’s totally worth it though)

Cilantro & Ginger Hummus

1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas (you can use dry and cook your own too) I really like Ziyad Hummos Tahini Chickpea Dip- found in ethnic food section at Kroger
1/2 cup tahini
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup cilantro
juice from 1/2 a lemon
1/4 cup water (or reserve the chickpea cooking water if you use dry beans)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt

First you need to peel off the chickpea skins. Don’t they look weird?! Like little snake skins or something… 

In a food processor blend can of chickpea dip,  the chickpeas until they are a coarse grain. Now add the tahini, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, cilantro and salt. Blend for a full minute or two. Now with the processor still running drizzle in the oil and then the water. For an even smoother, thinner consistency add more water.
