Vegan since 1975, I decide to answer the question, "What DO you eat?" These posts tell about some meals and recipes my family and I have enjoyed over the years.

Cilantro Hummus

I had a request for HUMMUS and pita chips today. I had defrosted a small container of home-cooked garbanzo beans already, so all that was necessary was to buy a bag of pita chips and use a small food processor to blend these ingredients together:
1 can – garbanzo beans (chick peas), or the equivalent
2 Tbl – tahini sesame paste
1 lg – lemon, juiced
1 – garlic clove
1 tsp – tamari soy sauce
½ tsp – olive oil
1 sm – bunch fresh cilantro or parsley
I used the cilantro for a different taste and liked it. Another time I stirred a small jar of capers into the hummus. If you don’t have pita chips, toast some bread or use chips or carrot sticks to scoop it up.
