By: Kara Parnell The standard I use to rate any Mediterranean restaurant is not the freshness of the falafel, or the flavor of the lamb kebab, as much as I love those things...the success of any Mediterranean or Middle Eastern restaurant for me, is the quality of it's hummus. I can't get enough of this creamy dip, drizzled in olive oil and topped with fresh herbs. The good new is, I don't have to wait to go out for hummus, I can have it anytime at home, in just a few minutes, and with just a few ingredients. This Coriander and Lime Hummus is fresh and healthy, quick to make, and so delicious. It's perfect for a quick lunch, or to bring to a potluck with friends. Break out the pita crackers, slice up some crunchy veggies, like capsicum, cucumbers or carrots, and dig in!



  1. Add chickpeas. tahini, lemon and lime juice, water, garlic and coriander leaves to a food processor and blend for 2 minutes. Slowly drizzle in olive oil and blend for additional minute of two until smooth.
  2. Add salt and siracha, pulse a few times, and taste. Add more salt or siracha if desired.
  3. Place hummus in a bowl, and serve by drizzling with more olive oil, a few drops of siracha, and a pinch of coriander leaves.
