No Garlic Hummus for Wes of Lifespace Projects

Wes Hooper from  Lifespace Projects really enjoyed this hummus at last nights dinner. I hope you enjoy this too.

By: Miriam Borys


1 can chick peas (well rinsed under 
cold water & drained) 540ml
1/4 cup Olive oil 
3 tsp. basil pesto (or fresh basil if available)
1 tsp. coriander  
1 tsp. cumin
2 green onions
1 tbsp wasabi mayo
1/2 cup parsley 
1/2 cup cilantro
1/4-1/2 cup water (depending on how thick or thin you want the hummus to be)

cracked salt & pepper to taste

Drain chick peas. Rinse with cold water in a wire mesh sieve and drain well.
Rinse parsley, Green onion, and cilantro first. Remove root end of green onion.
Add remaining ingredients into the food processor.
Processes until large pieces are gone. Scrape the sides of the processor bowl down.
Continue to process until the hummus is at the desired consistency. This stage is up to you and your personal taste. If too thick add more water or  broth (vegetable or chicken) until the hummus is at the right consistency.
Store in the fridge in a covered container until serving.
Great with a vegetable tray or with crackers and cheese.

Chef Miriam's Time Saving Cooking Tips: Hummus is an easy, care free, no worry recipe. It is your choice to follow the recipe exactly or if you don't have an ingredient ...substitute. For example, if  you don't have wasabi mayo, add plain Mayonnaise and a bit of wasabi powder or hot sauce. It will be delicious however you make it.
