5 minute Cilantro Hummus

Written By Srimathi Mani on Sunday, May 4, 2008 | 9:44 PM

I made hummus over this weekend and had them with pita bread and salad for dinner. My daughter loves hummus. I am so glad that she does because it is healthy, has protein, is tasty and easy to prepare. I make it for birthday parties, for watching any game with friends and family or just for getting my daughter to eat healthy. These days they sell many varieties of hummus. One of my favorite hummus is cilantro. It takes 5 mins max to prepare, if you are using garbanzo beans from a tin. However, it takes longer if you like to make it from scratch by soaking the beans over night with plenty of water and then cooking it in a pressure cooker with salt.
