Need I say more?
I’ve had a huge bunch of cilantro in my fridge for weeks now, and no idea what to do with it. I love cilantro, but with all the packing that is going on in the apartment these days, I really haven’t been cooking all that much. Every time I opened the refrigerator my beautiful bunch of cilantro stared back at me just waiting for me to make something really special with it. But my brain was fried. Finally when the outter leaves started turning a brownish color with a slimy texture I knew it was time to get creative.
I woke up one morning with an idea, jumped out of bed, and went to town with my cilantro. A can of chickpeas, a bunch of cilantro, and some tahini later I had made some really great hummus that definitely hit the spot.

I enjoyed my hummus on 2 pieces of toasted Ezekial bread topped with fresh tomatoes. It was fantastic. So healthy, fresh, and delicious!
