Cilantro Hummus

Cilantro Hummus
1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas (you can use dry and cook your own)
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. Rub chickpeas with a kitchen towel; skins will slip right off.In a food processor blend 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.

Enjoy as an afternoon snack with some toasted naan. It would also be great on crackers, veggies or spread on a sandwich.
