Directions

  1. Add the tahini and lemon juice to food processor and process for about 1 minute. Use a plastic spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed.
  2. Add olive oil, parsley, cilantro, jalapenos, onion, garlic and salt. Process for about 1 minute, scraping down the bowl as necessary.
  3. Add the chickpeas and process until the hummus has a thick and smooth texture... normally 1 or 2 minutes. Scrape down the bowl a few times while processing.
  4. If hummus is too thick, run the food processor while slowly adding 1 to 2 tablespoons water, until it reaches the desired consistency.
  5. Transfer the hummus into a small serving bowl. Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil on top and sprinkle with additional chopped herbs and green onions.
  6. Store hummus in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to one week.
