This creamy cilantro hummus recipe has a fresh, herbal flavor that makes it a delicious dip for vegetables or pita chips! Skip the store-bought hummus and make this tasty in just a few minutes!


  • 1 15oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • ½ bunch cilantro, ends trimmed (about 1 cup loosely packed)
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons water 
  • ½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)


  1. Warm the chickpeas in the microwave for 1 minute, to make the chickpeas easier to blend.
  2. Add the chickpeas, cilantro, and cumin to the food processor pulse until chunky.
  3. With the machine running, drizzle the olive oil and water and blend until smooth.
  4. Add salt to taste and blend until combined.


If you like your hummus to have a thinner consistency, feel free to add more water until you reach your desired consistency. It tends to thicken in the refrigerator so when enjoying leftovers, add a splash of water and stir until smooth.
