Green goodness coriander hummus

Hummus is a Middle eastern dip/spread made with boiled chickpeas to which ingredients like olive oil, garlic, salt and lemon is added. It is usually smeared over toasted bread or tortillas to make tacos. Hummus is most popular for accompanying falafel which is tucked into soft pita bread and served with crisp salad made of cucumber,onion, tomato and fresh mint. Hummus is served as a dip with pita and tortilla chips too as an appetizer. My another favourite way of eating it is with raw veggies like cherry tomatoes, carrot, cucumber and steamed broccoli. Its a great snack anytime of the day when you are hungry.

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I adore this dip. I don't know a single person who has tried it and not fallen in love with it. Its creamy, healthy, lemony, spicy, garlicky, delicious and packed with fresh punch of coriander!

Creamy hummus comes together easily and perfect when your guests or friends are coming over. You can make it the previous day and store in an air-tight container in refrigerator. I have shared recipe of hummus before too.This time around, I am sharing recipe of my green goodness hummus  with lots of coriander. Yum!

I absolutely adore creaminess of hummus and love how chickpeas absorb flavour of garlic and lemon and makes it irresistible. When I make a batch of hummus, I eat it with pretty much everything, even have it directly from the bowl on its own. It is that good!
