Spicy Green Hummus Recipe
¼ cup tahini
¼ cup fresh lemon juice (1 large lemon)
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
¼ cup roughly chopped fresh parsley
¼ cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
2 jalapeno peppers, seeds and stem removed, chopped
3 green onions chopped (more for garnish)
2 large garlic cloves, minced
One (15-ounce) can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
½ teaspoon salt, more to taste
1 to 2 tablespoons water (optional)
Garnish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of chopped fresh herbs or green onions
Add the tahini and lemon juice to food processor and process for about 1 minute. Use a plastic spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed.
Add olive oil, parsley, cilantro, jalapenos, onion, garlic and salt. Process for about 1 minute, scraping down the bowl as necessary.
Add the chickpeas and process until the hummus has a thick and smooth texture... normally 1 or 2 minutes. Scrape down the bowl a few times while processing.
If hummus is too thick, run the food processor while slowly adding 1 to 2 tablespoons water, until it reaches the desired consistency.
Transfer the hummus into a small serving bowl. Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil on top and sprinkle with additional chopped herbs and green onions..
Store hummus in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to one week.
