"Invited to a party at the last minute, I invented this hummus from what I had on hand," says reader Maria August, of Boulder. "To my surprise, I liked it better than the traditional tahini version." Serve with fresh-cut vegetables, such as jicama, carrot, red pepper, and celery sticks.

How to Make It

Step 1

Put chickpeas, cashews, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 2/3 cup water in a food processor and pulse until very smooth.

Step 2

Add remaining ingredients and pulse until well blended and very creamy, about 30 seconds. Add more water, one tbsp. at a time, if needed. Add more salt or lime juice to taste. Garnish with cashews and serve with vegetables.

A Big Hit

Very easy to make, cleaning and prepping the cilantro was the most time-consuming part. Large portion-I split it into two bowls for two events. My friends loved it-they recommend I bring this to parties in the future.

I prepare a variety of hummus and this one is unique. Refreshing taste - especially served with vegetables. Beautiful green for the holidays and a hit at both Thanksgiving & Christmas. I added a bit more heat, but that's what we prefer...rave reviews from everyone!!!
